Starkel -- In: Gregory, K.J., editor, Background to Palaeohydrology. Paleohydrology, or palaeohydrology, is the scientific study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth during previous periods of its history.

The discipline uses indirect evidence to infer changes in deposition rates, the existence of flooding, changes in sea levels, changes in groundwater levels and the erosion of rocks. Palaeohydrology includes studies of how the composition, distribution and movement of water on the land surface of the earth over the l years has related to past environmental changes.

Investigations provide information about the way that hydrology, and in particular, flood discharges, have changed in the past. The Handbook of Holocene Palaeoecology and Palaeohydrology was originally published in and has been out of print for many present book is a reprint of that volume, reprinted without changes to either text or illustrations.

Responsibility The first part of the book concentrates upon the theoretical background to environmental change, examining relationships between physical and biological environments and how they are affected by changes in climate, hydrology and human impact.

Paleohydrology definition is - the study of ancient use and handling of water (as in irrigation or urban water supplies). The need for uniform methods of correlating stratigraphical data on a continental scale is emphasized.

Transitional between applicable and applied outputs are specific subject books, for example a book dealing with river channel management (Downs and Gregory, ) started from the viewpoint of geomorphology but reflected a background that is increasingly multidisciplinary in scope and subject to international influences and by: Paleohydrology, also spelled Palaeohydrology, science concerned with hydrologic systems as they existed during previous periods of Earth ng hydrologic conditions are inferred from the evidence of the alteration, deposition, and erosion in rocks from these ydrology also deals with the changes in the floral and faunal assemblages.
