  • Flood Recovery, Innovation and Responseby D. Proverbs; C. A. Brebbia; E. Penning-Rowsell

    WIT Press 2008; US$ 278.00

    Flooding is a global phenomenon that each year claims around 25,000 lives worldwide. Additionally, many more people must endure the homelessness, disease and crop failures that are left in the wake of the floods. The increased frequency of flooding in the last ten years, coupled with climate change predictions and urban development, suggest that these... more...

    Reliable estimates of streamflow characteristics are needed for planning, design, and operation of works for providing water supplies and for protection from flooding. This book brings together some of the most useful estimation methods - those that are simple, practical, and require only commonly available or readily obtainable data, and which give... more...

  • Modelling Uncertainty in Flood Forecasting Systemsby Shreeda Maskey

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 98.95

    Like all natural hazards, flooding is a complex and inherently uncertain phenomenon. Despite advances in developing flood forecasting models and techniques, the uncertainty in forecasts remains unavoidable. This uncertainty needs to be acknowledged, and uncertainty estimation in flood forecasting provides a rational basis for risk-based criteria. This... more...

  • Floods in Bangladeshby Hofer Thomas; Messerli Bruno

    United Nations University Press 2006; US$ 45.00

    Is it really true that deforestation and the land use practices of the Himalayan farmers are to blame for the recurring and devastating monsoon floods in the plains of the Ganga and Brahmaputra? The validity of this paradigm has been increasingly questioned. This book presents new evidence resulting from a research project on floods in Bangladesh in... more...

  • Flood Warning, Forecasting and Emergency Responseby Kevin Sene

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    Recent flood events in Europe, the USA and elsewhere have shown the devastating impact that flooding can have on people and property. Flood warning and forecasting systems provide a well-established way to help to reduce the effects of flooding by allowing people to be evacuated from areas at risk, and for measures to be taken to reduce damage to property.... more...

  • Rivers Handbookby Peter P. Calow

    Wiley 2009; US$ 340.00

    Fast changing legislation and increasing environmental awareness within the non-scientific community demands that the modern approach to the management of rivers and water resources should be based on a sound understanding and application of the scientific and ecological principles that underlie freshwater processes. In two volumes, The Rivers Handbook... more...

  • River Republicby Daniel McCool

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 33.99

    Daniel McCool not only chronicles the history of water development agencies in America and the way in which special interests have abused rather than preserved the country?s rivers.

    Based on the interdisciplinary approaches between earth science, engineering, physical geography, ecology and management, this text focuses on the theoretical questions, case-studies, challenges, and constraints taken from river restoration. It is illustrated with reports of new ground-breaking research covering spatial and temporal scales of physical... more...

  • Introduction to the Physics of Cohesive Sediment Dynamics in the Marine Environmentby J.C. Winterwerp; W.G.M. van Kesteren

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 185.00

    This book is an introduction to the physical processes of cohesive sediment in the marine environment. It focuses on highly dynamic systems, such as estuaries and coastal seas. Processes on the continental shelf are also discussed and attention is given to the effects of chemistry, biology and gas. The process descriptions are based on hydrodynamic... more...
