  • Ribbon of Wildnessby Peter Wright

    Luath Press Ltd 2013; US$ 17.49

    The Watershed of Scotland is a line that separates east from west; that divides those river basin areas which drain towards the North Sea on the one hand, and those which flow west into the Atlantic Ocean on the other. It's a line that meanders from Peel Fell on the English border all the way to the top at Duncansby Head, near John O'Groats - over... more...

    The book describes the drainage basin as a system unit resulting from the interaction between runoff and topography - a lengthy process of evolution that occurs according to well-defined laws. It aims not to quantify the agents which created the present forms, but to analyse the forms themselves in order to establish the laws according to which they... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2011; US$ 130.00

    Extreme floods cause enormous damage in floodplains, which levees cannot prevent. It is hence vital for spatial planning to provide space for water retention in these areas. However, attempts to make the space for rivers to provide retention are generally more...

  • Wadi Hydrologyby Zekai Sen

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 159.95
