Environmental Hydrology

3rd Edition

Featured

Andy D. Ward, Stanley W. Trimble, Suzette R. Burckhard, John G. Lyon
September 17, 2015

The late Professor Reds Wolman in his Foreword to the award-winning second edition said, "This is not your ordinary textbook. Environmental Hydrology is indeed a textbook, but five elements often found separately combine here in one text to make it different. It is eclectic, practical, in places a h...

Assessing Bacterial Growth Potential in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment: Method Development and Applications

1st Edition

Almotasembellah Abushaban
December 16, 2019

Seawater desalination is increasingly being used as a means to augment freshwater supplies in regions with high water stress, and reverse osmosis is increasingly the technology of choice because of the low energy consumption. However, seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) systems suffer from various...

Making Water Security: A Morphological Account of Nile River Development

1st Edition

Hermen Smit
December 16, 2019

This book examines Nile water security through the morphology of the river: it uses the always changing form of the river as a theoretical and empirical device to map and understand how infrastructures and discourses dynamically interact with the Nile. By bringing a history of two centuries of dam...

Saeid Eslamian, Saeid Okhravi, Faezeh Eslamian
December 11, 2019

Constructed Wetlands: Hydraulic Design provides fundamental information on internal wetland hydraulic and biochemical processes, as well as practical guidance on the effective design of wetlands for water treatment. It includes the latest innovations and technological advances of constructed...

Public Spaces for Water: A Design Notebook

1st Edition

Maria Matos Silva
December 10, 2019

This illustrated notebook highlights the need for a change of paradigm in current flood management practices, one that acknowledges the wide-ranging and interdisciplinary benefits brought by public space design. Reassessing and improving established flood management methods, public spaces are faced...

Effects of Wetland Conversion to Farming on Water Quality and Sediment and Nutrient Retention in a Tropical Catchment

1st Edition

Abias Uwimana
December 10, 2019

The study used a combination of landscape-scale synoptic surveys (catchment, reaches) and mesocosm surveys (experimental plots) to assess the impacts of conversion of natural valley-bottom wetlands to farming land on the water quality and retention of sediment and nutrients. The results showed that...

Readers will learn how to extract valuable information on global changes from a 20-year collection of ready-to-use remotely sensed...

Understanding the Impact of Human Interventions on the Hydrology of Nile Basin Headwaters, the Case of Upper Tekeze Catchments

1st Edition

Tesfay Gebretsadkan Gebremicael
November 19, 2019

The availability and distribution of water resources in catchments are influenced by various natural and anthropogenic factors. Human-induced environmental changes are key factors controlling the hydrological flows of semi-arid catchments. Land degradation, water scarcity and inefficient...

Optimisation of Dynamic Heterogeneous Rainfall Sensor Networks in the Context of Citizen Observatories

1st Edition

Juan Carlos Chacon-Hurtado
November 12, 2019

Precipitation drives the dynamics of flows and storages in water systems, making its monitoring essential for water management. Conventionally, precipitation is monitored using in-situ and remote sensors. In-situ sensors are arranged in networks, which are usually sparse, providing continuous...
