Summary

New Techniques for Modelling the Management of Stormwater Quality Impacts is a unique volume devoted to discussing new developments in modeling, best management practices (BMPs), information management, user interfacing, and instrumentation for reducing the impacts of urbanization on aquatic ecosystems. The book is divided into three sections: ecosystems and environmental modeling contexts; best management practices, including real-time control; and applications of geographical information systems (GIS). Specific topics addressed include the need to move from a regulatory basis for system management to a process-based management system, the use of remote sensing to divide a catchment into six different hydrologic response classes to compute floods, instrumentation, data acquisition, real-time control, aspects of stormwater detention ponds, and methods for using GIS. Detailed indexes, lists of acronyms, programs and models, and a full glossary are provided at the end of the book.

New Techniques for Modelling the Management of Stormwater Quality Impacts will interest professional engineers in municipal and environmental engineering, consultants, researchers in civil engineering, hydrological engineers, hydraulics engineers, environmental policy makers, and students.
