Edited by Eric W. (University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez) Harmsen, Megh R. (University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (Retired professor)) Goyal
Part of the Innovations in Agricultural & Biological Engineering series
About 7,000 people lose their lives and nearly 100 million people are adversely affected by floods each year worldwide.
Flooding occurs in almost every part of the world and is the result of extreme rainfall.
Severe flooding also costs billions of dollars each year in damage and economic losses.
This new volume focuses on two detailed studies that employ physically based hydrologic models to predict flooding in the particularly challenging environment of small watersheds with mountainous terrain and high intensity/high variability rainfall.
