By Pierre Y. Julien

This textbook deals an intensive research of rivers from upland parts to oceans. Julien scrutinizes pick out tools underlining either conception and engineering functions, emphasizing the mechanics of flood wave propagation and sediment delivery in rivers. Chapters supply designated remedies of riverbank stabilization and engineering tools and canopy actual and mathematical types. jointly, they elucidate measures to lessen flood impression and financial institution erosion, increase navigation, and elevate water offer to towns and irrigation canals. greater than a hundred workouts and approximately twenty case reviews make this publication a useful studying device for college students.

Groundwater Modelling in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

Arid and semi-arid areas face significant demanding situations within the administration of scarce freshwater assets less than pressures of inhabitants, fiscal improvement, weather swap, pollutants and over-abstraction. Groundwater is often an important water source in those parts. Groundwater types are known globally to appreciate groundwater platforms and to lead judgements on administration.

The Medieval Warm Period

The Medieval hot interval and the Little Ice Age are extensively thought of to were the most important beneficial properties of the Earth's weather during the last a thousand years. during this quantity the problem of even if there rather used to be a Medieval hot interval, and if that is so, the place and while, is addressed. the kinds of facts tested comprise ancient records, tree jewelry, ice cores, glacial-geological documents, borehole temperature, paleoecological information and files of sun receipts inferred from cosmogenic isotopes.

Climate and Water: Transboundary Challenges in the Americas

Weather and Water: Transboundary demanding situations within the Americas explores the various ways in which weather, hydrology, and water source administration converge on the borders among jurisdictions and international locations within the western Hemisphere. This ebook is exclusive in targeting case stories of climate-hydrology-water source administration in diversified contexts in South, imperative, and North the USA.

The radar transmits an average power of 1 kW, with peak power during transmit pulses of 1 MW, and can measure Doppler velocities. Ground clutter, high reflectivity, ice and graupel phase, representative precipitation values at different elevations (or CAPPIs), and ground calibration remain active research areas to improve the accuracy of radar measurements. 9 shows multiparameter rainfall rates within the 80 km × 80 km data domain at 12:48 MDT and 13:56 MDT. The radar was located at the origin of the plots.

10. Pressure and shear-stress distributions in a fluid column. We obtain the pressure distribution by integrating Eq. 20c), given that az = 0 and that shear-stress variations are small. 23) z at the bed, z = 0, the pressure is p0 = ρgh and the relative pressure vanishes at the free surface, p = 0 at z = h. The bed shear stress τ0 is obtained from the definition of the friction slope S f for steady-uniform flow as τ0 = ρgh S f . Like pressure, the shear-stress vanishes at the free surface and varies linearly over the depth.

Watershed characteristics can often be described in geographical terms, including physiography and topography, geology and pedology, and climatology and forestry. Watershed boundaries are delineated by drainage divides, usually located at high points, that separate different drainage areas. Watershed physiography is described primarily by topographic maps. The elevation relates to the type of precipitation in terms of rain and snow. 1. Hydrologic cycle. into the kinetic energy (KE) of surface waters.
