Models of Watershed Hydrology 2012 HARDCOVER EDITION
Due to popular demand, this book has been reprinted in hardcover - included with it is the CD with the original 13 compatible modeling programs
<<A welcome edition to any modeling library>>
This book stemmed from a desire to provide a comprehensive account of some of the world's popular computer models of watershed hydrology. To achieve this objective, a variety of models that together spanned a range of characteristics were included. Some of those models represent a large class of models, some are comprehensive, some are applicable to not only civil works but also to agricultural, range and forest, and nonpoint source pollution fields; some are equipped with the GIS and remote sensing capability, and some represent a large cross-section of models from around the world.
The subject matter of this book is divided into 29 chapters. Beginning with introductory remarks on watershed modeling in Chapter 1, model calibration and reliability estimation are presented in Chapters 2 and 3, respectively. The next ten chapters (4 to 13) present some of the popular models from around the world. These models are in the realm of civil engineering applications of watershed hydrology models. Some of the models are more comprehensive than others and some have the management capabilities. The next two models, presented in Chapters 14 and 15, are large-scale models and embody GIS and remote sensing technology. The models presented in Chapters 16 to 23 are more physically-based and distributed in nature, quite suited to nonpoint source pollution modeling, and to assess environmental impact of land use changes. The remaining 5 models presented in Chapters 24 to 29 are within the realm of agricultural and forestry applications. Nonpoint source pollution, erosion and impact on soil productivity, drainage design, etc., can be modeled by applying these models.
Computer Models of Watershed Hydrology will be of interest to practicing hydrologists, especially to hydrologic modelers and the model users, as well as specialists in the fields of civil engineering, agricultural engineering, environmental science, forest and range science, earth science, climatology, and watershed sciences. Graduate students, teachers engaged in graduate instruction, and researchers will also find this book useful. Due to the popularity of this book and with innovations in printing, this was reprinted in 2012 with the original information. It is now part of WRP’s Classic Resource Edition. Reprinted 2012 by WRP in hardbound edition.
