Useful to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in aquaculture, as well as to commercial aquaculturists, aquacultural researchers and aquaculture consultants, this book provides a thorough, but not excessively detailed, fundamental background on selected topics in hydrology and on water supply and water supply systems for pond aquaculture. More detailed than a general textbook, but less detailed than an engineering manual, this book suppplies aquaculturists with information necessary to solve problems and communicate effectively, and it will enlighten engineers about problems encountered in aquaculture projects. Topics include the properties of water, water budgets, water conservation, open-channel flows, water measurement, ground water and wells, pond design, and alternatives to pond aquaculture.
A text for a course in water supply for aquaculture or for individual study. The volume is divided into two parts. Part I, Hydrology, Morphology, and Soils, is concerned with hydrological phenomena that affect pond design, construction, and management. Part II, Design of Water Supply and Pond Systems, deals primarily with engineering techniques used in design and construction of pond aquaculture facilities. Annotation c.
