"On the whole, the topics are well organized, the prose is easy to read and understand, the style is lucid, and there is a wealth of information reflecting the knowledge and experience of the author. The book will also be useful to practicing water and environmental engineers.." (Journal of Hydrologic Engineering, August 2009)“ As a water quality professional, I found the book to be helpful and a very informative reference. It provides much needed information for solving practical environmental water resources problems through modeling. It would also be a great addition to any university library." (Journal of the American Water Resources Association, July 2009) “This hands-on reference illustrates the principles, basic processes, mathematical descriptions, and practical applications of modeling surface waters." (APADE, 2009)
