From The Preface:
This book is intended as an introduction to the elemental factors and
processes that operate in lakes, streams, and estuaries as dynamic systems.
In seeking to fulfill this intention the aim is primarily two-fold. First, the
book attempts to bring into summary some of the major aspects of the
knowledge that has been atnassed from the study of inland waters and
estuaries by many investigators. Such a study, drawing as it does from
geology, hydrology, physics, chemistry, and biology, is obviously vast and
complex. In order to appreciate so broad a field it is necessary to view a
considerable body of basic factual information.
