Handbook of Engineering Hydrology : Fundamentals and Applications Hardback
While most books only examine the classical aspects of hydrology, the three-volume set covers multiple aspects of hydrology, and includes contributions from experts from more than 30 countries.
It examines new approaches, addresses growing concerns about hydrological and ecological connectivity, and considers the worldwide impact of climate change. It also provides updated material on hydrological science and engineering, discussing recent developments as well as classic approaches.
Published in three books, Fundamentals and Applications; Modeling, Climate Change, and Variability; and Environmental Hydrology and Water Management, the entire set consists of 87 chapters, and contains 29 chapters in each book. The chapters in this book contain information on:Long-term generation of scheduling of hydro plants, check dam selection procedures in rainwater harvesting, and stochastic reservoir analysisEcohydrology for engineering harmony in the changing world, concepts, and plant water useConjunctive use of groundwater and surface waterHydrologic and hydraulic design in green infrastructureData processing in hydrology, optimum hydrometric site selection and quality control, and homogenization of climatological seriesCold region hydrology, evapotranspiration, and water consumptionModern flood prediction and warning systems, and satellite-based systems for flood monitoring and warningCatchment water yield estimation, hydrograph analysis and base flow separation, and low flow hydrologySustainability in urban water systems and urban hydrologyStudents, practitioners, policy makers, consultants and researchers can benefit from the use of this text.
