Discusses probabilistic models for the occurrence and non-occurrence of physical events, and for their magnitude of severity when they do occur. This book describes how probabilistic models may be used to make predictions where water is a medium of transport for sediment and pollutants.

Its aim is to encourage students and research workers to see how environmental problems can be put into a probabilistic framework, and to draw their attention to analogous problems and solutions in other fields of environmental science in which water, and the transport of material by water, is an essential characteristic.
