Hydrology and Hydraulic Systems, Fourth Edition
For more than 25 years, the multiple editions of Hydrology & Hydraulic Systems have set the standard for a comprehensive, authoritative treatment of the quantitative elements of water resources development. The latest edition extends this tradition of excellence in a thoroughly revised volume that reflects the current state of practice in the field of hydrology.
Widely praised for its direct and concise presentation, practical orientation, and wealth of example problems, Hydrology & Hydraulic Systems presents fundamental theories and concepts balanced with excellent coverage of engineering applications and design. The Fourth Edition features a major revision of the chapter on distribution systems, as well as a new chapter on the application of remote sensing and computer modeling to hydrology.
Outstanding features of the Fourth Edition include:
More than 350 illustrations and 200 tables
More than 225 fully solved examples, both in FPS and SI units
Fully worked-out examples of design projects with realistic data
More than 500 end-of-chapter problems for assignment
Discussion of statistical procedures for groundwater monitoring in accordance with the EPA’s Unified Guidance
Detailed treatment of hydrologic field investigations and analytical procedures for data assessment, including the USGS acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) approach
Thorough coverage of theory and design of loose-boundary channels, including the latest concept of combining the regime theory and the power function laws
