About this book

The Handbook of Environmental Engineering series is an incredible collection of methodologies that study the effects of pollution and waste in their three basic forms: gas, solid, and liquid. This exciting new addition to the series, Volume 15: Modern Water Resources Engineering , has been designed to serve as a water resources engineering reference book as well as a supplemental textbook. We hope and expect it will prove of equal high value to advanced undergraduate and graduate students, to designers of water resources systems, and to scientists and researchers. A critical volume in the Handbook of Environmental Engineering series, chapters employ methods of practical design and calculation illustrated by numerical examples, include pertinent cost data whenever possible, and explore in great detail the fundamental principles of the field. Volume 15: Modern Water Resources Engineering, provides information on some of the most innovative and ground-breaking advances in the field today from a panel of esteemed experts. 

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book covers numerous topics in modern hydrology, ranging from the traditional engineering disciplines of open-channel hydraulics and sediment transport to the more recent areas of decision making, climate change impact, and aquaculture management. … This book is an excellent resource, not only for the content presented but also for the long list of end-of-chapter references. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (E. Gomezdelcampo, Choice, Vol. 52 (4), December, 2014)
