Since 1958 when Australian Rainfall and Runoff was first released it has remained one of the most influential and widely used guidelines published by.Engineers Australia. The current edition, initially published in 1987 and in a split book form in 1998, has received widespread Australian and international acclaim. Furthermore, the general community has recognised the importance of Australian Rainfall and Runoff to the practice of hydrologic engineering in Australia through the many awards that the current edition received when first published. Since publication of the current edition, there have been advances in the application of engineering hydrology that warrant the updating of the current document. This has already led to the revision of Book 6 on Estimation of Large and Extreme Floods in 1999. Furthermore, the issues of environment sustainability and water conservation are increasingly requiring the application ofupdated or new engineering hydrology techniques.
