About this book

The book assembles the latest research on new design techniques in water supplies using desalinated seawater. The authors examine the diverse issues related to the intakes and outfalls of these facilities. They clarify how and why these key components of the facilities impact the cost of operation and subsequently the cost of water supplied to the consumers. The book consists of contributed articles from a number of experts in the field who presented their findings at the "Desalination Intakes and Outfalls" workshop held at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia in October, 2013. The book integrates coverage relevant to a wide variety of researchers and professionals in the general fields of environmental engineering and sustainable development.

About the authors

Thomas M. Missimer has published with Springer a book on "Arid Lands Water Evaluation and Management" in the Environmental Science and Engineering series. The book constitutes the first comprehensive compilation on arid lands water management that includes all aspects of the water supply, including groundwater, surface water, desalination, and water reuse.
