  1. Flood Risk Management: Research and Practice

    Extended Abstracts Volume (332 pages) + full paper CD-ROM (1772 pages)

    Edited by Paul Samuels, Stephen Huntington, William Allsop, Jackie Harrop

    Floods cause distress and damage wherever and whenever they happen. Flooding from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatens many millions of people worldwide and economic and insurance losses from flooding have increased significantly since 1990. Across the European Union, flood management policy is...

  2. Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    By Wilbert Lick

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of...

  3. From Headwaters to the Ocean

    Hydrological Change and Water Management - Hydrochange 2008, 1-3 October 2008, Kyoto, Japan

    Edited by Makoto Taniguchi, William C. Burnett, Yoshihiro Fukushima, MARTIN HAIGH, Yu Umezawa

    The vulnerability of water resources due to climate change and human activities is globally increasing. The phenomenon of hydrological change is complicated because of the combinations and interactions between natural climate fluctuation, global warming and human activities including changes in...

  4. Streamflow Measurement, Third Edition

    By Reginald W. Herschy

    ‘Too little water or too much’? In either case streamflow measurement is crucial. Climate change could significant affect water resources and flood management. Streamflow measurement is necessary for efficient water management. This third edition deals with all the main current methods for...

  5. Numerical Modeling of Water Waves

    By Pengzhi Lin

    Modelling large-scale wave fields and their interaction with coastal and offshore structures has become much more feasible over the last two decades with increases in computer speeds. Wave modelling can be viewed as an extension of wave theory, a mature and widely published field, applied to...

  6. Remediation Hydraulics

    By Fred C. Payne, Joseph A. Quinnan, Scott T. Potter

    In situ treatments involving the arrangement of contact between prospective reactants in complex porous media require a refined understanding of solute migration. However, the tools and methods used to predict and control fluid movement in the subsurface need significant improvement. Practitioners...

  7. Fluid Mechanics of Environmental Interfaces

    Edited by Carlo Gualtieri, Dragutin T. Mihailovic

    An environmental interface is defined as a surface between two abiotic or biotic systems, in relative motion and exchanging mass, heat and momentum through biophysical and/or chemical processes. These processes fluctuate temporally and spatially. The book first treats exchange processes occurring...

  8. Practical Hydraulics

    2nd Edition

    By Melvyn Kay

    Hydraulics has a reputation for being a complex, even intimidating, discipline. Put simply, hydraulics is the study of how water and similar fluids behave and can be harnessed for practical use. It is one of the fundamental scientific and engineering subjects and many professions demand a working...

  9. Fundamentals of Fluvial Geomorphology

    By Ro Charlton, Ro Charlton

    Rivers are significant geomorphological agents, they show an amazing diversity of form and behaviour and transfer water and sediment from the land surface to the oceans. This book examines how river systems respond to environmental change and why this understanding is needed for successful river...

  10. Flow Adaptive Schemes

    By Vendrana Kutija

    A study in the development of flow adaptive numerical schemes in computational hydraulics directed to enhancing modelling capabilities. Examples covered include additional flow resistance due to flexible vegetation; one-dimensional supercritical flow; and flow in networks of channels....
