Environmental Hydrology, Third Edition


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...

Controlling Biofouling in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Membrane Systems

Nirajan Dhakal
January 16, 2018

Seawater desalination is a rapidly growing coastal industry that is increasingly threatened by algal blooms. Depending on the severity of algal blooms, desalination systems may be forced to shut down because of clogging and/or poor feed water quality. To maintain stable operation and provide good...

Flexibility in Adaptation Planning: When, Where and How to Include Flexibility for Increasing Urban Flood Resilience

Mohanasundar Radhakrishnan
January 09, 2018

The magnitude and urgency of the need to adapt to climate change is such that addressing it has been taken up by the United Nations as one of the sustainable development goals - Goal 13 (SDG13) in 2015. SDG13 emphasises the need to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate related...

Estimating the Impacts of Urban Growth on Future Flood Risk: A Comparative Study

William Verbeek
January 09, 2018

The unprecedented growth of cities has a significant impact on future flood risk that might exceed the impacts of climate change in many metropolitan areas across the world. Although the effects of urbanisation on flood risk are well understood, assessments that include spatially explicit future...

Evaporation of Water With Emphasis on Applications and Measurements

Frank E. Jones
December 08, 2017

The loss of water from lakes, rivers, oceans, vegetation, and the earth, as well as man-made structures such as reservoirs and irrigation conduits, is a major concern of hydrologists and irrigation specialists. This loss, compounded by the lack of usable water in some areas, indicates a need for...

Modeling Shallow Water Flows Using the Discontinuous Galerkin Method

Abdul A. Khan, Wencong Lai
November 22, 2017

  Replacing the Traditional Physical Model Approach Computational models offer promise in improving the modeling of shallow water flows. As new techniques are considered, the process continues to change and evolve. Modeling Shallow Water Flows Using the Discontinuous Galerkin Method examines...

Fluoride Removal from Groundwater by Adsorption Technology

Abdulai Salifu
November 14, 2017

In the Eastern corridor of Northern region of Ghana, presence of high fluoride concentration in the groundwater has made many drilled boreholes unusable for drinking. Little is, however, known about the factors contributing to the occurrence of high fluoride in this part of Ghana and it’s spatial...

Pradeep Narrain
November 14, 2017

The role of small hydropower is becoming increasingly important on a global level. Increasing energy demand and environmental awareness has further triggered research and development into sustainable low-cost technologies. In developing countries, particularly in rural areas, the possibility of...

Water Supply and Demand Management in the Galápagos: A Case Study of Santa Cruz Island

Maria Fernanda Reyes Perez
November 09, 2017

Water resources in tourist islands have been severely threatened, especially in the Galápagos Islands, where the increased local population has generated attractive income from the tourist services. In addition, the data regarding water supply and demand are scarce. This study investigates water...
