This book provides comprehensive insight of the fundamentals of engineering hydrology. The study on water resources is gradually expanded to focus on the entire system. The economic-engineering optimization model used for the optimization of the water resources system enriched the evaluation method of the macro-system, which considered data related to surface water, groundwater, water infrastructure, and water demand. Pollution of surface water with harmful chemicals and eutrophication of rivers and lakes with excess nutrients are serious environmental issues.Pollution of surface water with harmful chemicals and eutrophication of rivers and lakes with excess nutrients are serious environmental concerns.
This book reviews currently available hydrologic and water quality models, and presents model application case studies, to provide a foundation for further model development and watershed assessment studies. It succeedingly focuses on understanding groundwater storage changes and recharge through remote sensing; an ArcGIS toolbox for river bathymetry reconstruction; hydro-geochemical water inputs identification in glacierized basin hydrology; and hydrologic trends in the upper Nueces river basin of Texas—implications for water resource management and ecological health.
This book will be of valued students and practitioners dealing with the associated field and, moreover, may provide new concepts and starting topics for future researches.
