  • 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.

  • 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...

  • A Watershed Yearby Cornelia F. Mutel

    University of Iowa Press 2010; US$ 19.00

    In June 2008, the rivers of eastern Iowa rose above their banks to create floods of epic proportions; their amazing size?flowing in places at a rate nearly double that of the previous record flood?and the rapidity of their rise ruined farmlands and displaced thousands of residents and hundreds of businesses. In Cedar Rapids, the waters inundated more... 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.
