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...

Climate Change Impacts on Coastal Soil and Water Management

1st Edition

Zied Haj-Amor, Salem Bouri
February 12, 2020

Climate Change Impacts on Coastal Soil and Water Management discusses the latest approaches for monitoring soil and water degradation in coastal regions under current climate conditions as well as potential further changes in the future. It presents an overview of climate change impacts on soil and...

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...

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...

Water Resource Management Issues: Basic Principles and Applications

1st Edition

Louis Theodore, R. Ryan Dupont
December 02, 2019

Drinking Water Safety: Basic Principles and Applications, examines the technical and scientific, as well as regulatory, ethical, and emerging issues of pollution prevention, sustainability, and optimization for the production and management of safe drinking water to cope with environmental...

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...

The Value of Using Hydrological Datasets for Water Allocation Decisions: Earth Observations, Hydrological Models and Seasonal Forecasts

1st Edition

Alexander José Kaune Schmidt
November 12, 2019

An increasing number of hydrological datasets from earth observations, hydrological models and seasonal forecasts have become available for water managers, consultants and the general public. These datasets are state-of-the-art products which are usually accessible online and may contribute to...

1st Edition

Abrar Yousuf, Manmohanjit Singh
November 11, 2019

The book provides a comprehensive insight into watersheds and modeling of the hydrological processes in the watersheds. It covers the concepts of watershed hydrology and watershed management in depth. The basic types, of soil erosion and its measurement and estimation of runoff and soil loss from...

Anaerobic Treatment and Resource Recovery from Methanol Rich Waste Gases and Wastewaters

Tejaswini Eregowda
October 29, 2019

Methanol is an important volatile organic compound (VOC) present in the gaseous and liquid effluents of process industries such as pulp and paper, paint manufacturing and petroleum refineries. An estimated 65% of the total methanol emission was from the Kraft mills of the pulp and paper industries....

Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control for the Municipal Water Cycle in a River Basin Context: Validation of the Three-Step Strategic Approach

1st Edition

Alberto Galvis-Castaño
October 09, 2019

The protection of water resources from deterioration in quality by pollution discharges is probably the biggest challenge in sustainable water resources management in the recent decades. In practice, most countries have adopted pollution control strategies and measures which are based on ‘...

Rethinking Faecal Sludge Management in Emergency Settings: Decision Support Tools and Smart Technology Applications for Emergency Sanitation

1st Edition

Fiona Zakaria
September 15, 2019

The development of technology in the emergency sanitation sector has not been emphasised sufficiently considering that the management of human excreta is a basic requirement for every person. The lack of technology tailored to emergency situations complicates efforts to cater for sanitation needs...
