"This four-volume encyclopedia has more than 300 essays written by water scientists, professors and educators covering key concepts, current issues, traditional and emerging research and major legislation, along with historical overviews, biographical sketches and career information. The articles are written for the layperson or high school student, but can be used by the more sophisticated scientist. The articles range from 300 to 2,500 words and cover hydrology, geology, chemistry, ecology, environmental science, waterways, engineering, earth science, oceanography, economics, policy, planning, management, laws and rights, among other topics. The articles are signed by their authors and "see" references are included along with a closing bibliography that lists many Internet resources. Bold face words in the text are defined or discussed elsewhere in the set and more than 575 color photographs illustrate the text. Each of the four volumes begins with a topical outline for the set and three tables: Selected Metric Conversions, Selected Symbols and Abbreviations and Acronyms. Sidebars within the volumes provide glossary information, boxed sidebars with additional information, and see references. The same 60-page glossary is found at the end of each volume, as well as an index to the entire set. While this is a scientific work, it will be appreciated for its view of the impact of water on geography, history and conservation issues. Highly recommended for high schools." -- Blanche Woolls and David Loertscher
