Hydrology is the branch of science that is concerned with the movement and management of water on the surface of Earth, beneath the surface of Earth, as well as in the atmosphere. Hillslopes make up the flanks of valleys and the margins of eroding uplands. Hillslope hydrology is a scientific study to understand the hillslope runoff processes and the contribution of groundwater to storm runoff. Such hydrologic organization brings in distinct characteristics in soil and vegetation of hilltops, valleys and between sunny and shady slopes. The topographic gradients present on the hillslopes drive water, sediments and biogeochemical fluxes down the hillslopes. Hydrologic processes are traditionally studied at hillslope-to-catchment scales (tens of meters to kilometers). An important area of study in this field is the interplay of sediments, subsurface flow, soil erosion and overland flow. This book provides significant information of this discipline to help develop a good understanding of hillslope hydrology and its related fields. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included herein. This book will help new researchers by foregrounding their knowledge in this branch.
