This book offers a clear and up-to-date presentation of fundamental concepts and design methods required to understand hydrology and floodplain analysis. It addresses the computational emphasis of modern hydrology and provides a balanced approach to important applications in watershed analysis, floodplain computation, flood control, urban hydrology, stormwater design, and computer modeling.
Chapter topics cover rainfall-runoff analysis, frequency analysis, flood routing, hydrologic simulation models and watershed analysis, urban hydrology, floodplain hydraulics, ground water hydrology, design issues and geographical information systems in hydrology, NEXRAD radar rainfall for hydrologic prediction, and floodplain management issues.
For engineers and hydrologists.
Textbook for advanced undergraduates or grad students on traditional topics such as precipitation, evaporation, infiltration, rainfall- runoff analysis, flood frequency, and flood routing methods. Also covers applied hydrologic theory and modern computer techniques in watershed analysis, floodplain delineation, and urban stormwater. Acidic paper. Annotation c.
