Title: Water Resources
Yield **This publication is a complete reference text on surface water resources yield assessment for graduate students, university professors and water resources planning practitioners** 
• Useful to water
engineers, practicing hydrologists, and graduate students
• New and updated techniques relevant to present day analyses
• Classification of SYP techniques
• Worked examples of 4 streams representing worldwide variability range
• Brings together both theory and application of SYP techniques
• Onstream and offstream storages
Water Resources Yield
was written by authors with extensive experience of teaching, research and
consultancy in the field of water resources planning and management. The book
has benefited from their extensive experience teaching this subject to graduate
students from various parts of the world, and some of the worked examples have
been adapted from those used in their lecture notes. It was written in clear
and concise language and is unique by having worked examples based on four different
rivers, which highlight the variations in hydrological conditions around the
world. Thus in addition to demonstrating how some of the complex reservoir storageyieldperformance
techniques described in the book could be implemented using real life data,
the worked examples have also helped to highlight the effects which the continental
hydrological differences could have on surface water storageyieldperformance
functions.
Water Resources Yield
has continued the tradition in two earlier books  River and
Reservoir Yield and Reservoir Capacity and Yield  by providing very
uptodate review of techniques that deal with yield hydrology of streams and
reservoirs. Thus in this book, recently introduced performance metrics such
as resilience, vulnerability, sustainability, figures of merit, drought risk
index, etc. are described in detail using worked examples. The same goes for
modifications of the sequent peak algorithm and the variety of generalised storageyieldperformance
functions for use without the need to analyse time series data.
This book is one of the most complete reference textbooks on water resources
yield assessment and is a must for all graduate students, university Professors
and practitioners engaged in the subject.
