  • Advances in Urban Stormwater and Agricultural Runoff Source Controls

    Notwithstanding past achievements, flood damage continues to rise throughout the world as the magnitudes of floods increase, partly as a result of poor land management and partly by climate change, growing populations and continuing development in flood-prone areas, and the aging and deterioration of flood defences. One of the major goals of ...

  • Runoff, Infiltration and Subsurface Flow of Water in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

    This book attempts to describe runoff, infiltration and subsurface flow of water by adopting a holistic approach rather than restricting itself to a particular section of the hydrological cycle. It includes reports on recent studies which have led to a better understanding of a variety of problems prevailing in semi-arid and arid zones. ...

  • Wetlands and Urbanization: Implications for the Future

    Urbanization affects wetlands in direct and indirect ways. Over the past several decades it has become increasingly apparent that unmanaged runoff is the primary threat to the country´s watershed ...

  • Remote Sensing in Snow Hydrology

    Initially, the role of snow and ice in the global water balance is assessed and methods of snow measurements are explained. Remote sensing is dealt with with regard to periodical snow cover mapping. Last advances and refinements refer to spatial resolution, cloud interference and separate monitoring of snow and glacier ice. Following a review of ...

  • Wet-Weather Flow in the Urban Watershed: Technology and Management

    According to the National Resources Defense Council, stormwater runoff rivals or exceeds discharges from factories and sewage plants as a source of pollution throughout the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency identifies urban stormwaters as the second largest source of water quality damage in estuaries and a significant contributor ...

  • Stormwater (Poster)

    Say it with posters!Provides specific ways in which individuals and workplaces can make a difference by keeping water supplies clean and reducing stormwater runoff.Posters are 18' x 24' laminated color. A quantity discount will be applied for 10 or more posters once added to your cart. ...

  • Concentration Dynamics of Fecal Indicators in Hawaiian Coastal and Inland Sand, Soil, and Water during Rainfall Events

    Available as eBook only The contamination of recreational waters by waterborne pathogens poses a health threat to beach users. Recently, the importance of beach sand to the biological quality of beach water has been realized and verified. This study examined how urban rainfall runoff from a tributary stream affects the concentrations of fecal ...

  • Soil Conservation Service Curve Number (SCS-CN) Methodology

    Recent contributions have significantly enhanced the understanding of the SCS-CN method and consequently its application potential. In the simplest form, the fundamental proportionality concept of the method relates the two orthogonal hydrological processes of surface water and ground water and the other hypothesis relates to the atmospheric ...

  • Principles of Snow Hydrology

    Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from ...

  • Federal Environmental Regulation of Real Estate Law Digest

    This new digest focuses on cases dealing with the impact of environmental laws and regulations on land ownership, land development, and land acquisition. In addition, it covers cases that deal with the major federal enactments, such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA); Resource Conservation and ...

  • Urban Street Stormwater Guide

    Streets make up more than 80 percent of all public space in cities, yet street space is often underutilized or disproportionately allocated to the movement of private motor vehicles. Excess impervious surface contributes to stormwater runoff, posing a threat to the environment and human health, and often overwhelming sewer systems. This excess ...

  • Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studies - An Environmental Approach

    Improving Water Quality Through Contaminant Source Trackdown Studiesdiscusses the trackdown approaches that help to avoid costly mistakes that miss key contaminant sources or inaccurately assess their relative contributions to problems. This book brings together information that is currently dispersed in the academic literature and within files of ...

  • Physical Oceanography of the Baltic Sea

    The Baltic Sea oceanographic research community is wide and the research history is over 100 years old. Nevertheless, there is still no single, coherent book on the physical oceanography of the Baltic Sea as a whole. There is a strong need for such a book, coming from working oceanographers as well as the university teaching programmes in advanced ...

  • Stormwater Management for Smart Growth

    The challenges faced by professionals as related to the management of stormwater runoff are rapidly changing. First-generation stormwater management focused on providing flood protection and limiting peakflow, whereas now a greater emphasis is being placed on water quality. Consequently, stormwater management is shifting with more emphasis on ...

  • Urban Pluvial and Coincidental Flooding

    Pluvial flooding is defined as flooding that results from rainfall-generated overland flow, before the runoff enters any watercourse or sewer.  It is usually associated with high intensity rainfall events (typically >30mm/h) but can also occur with lower intensity rainfall or melting snow where the ground is saturated, frozen, developed or ...

  • Marine Benthic Vegetation

    Increasing amounts of various types of wastes and pollutants including nutrients enter the coastal waters via rivers, direct discharges from land drainage systems, diffuse land runoff, dumping and via the atmosphere. This has led to coastal eutrophication and in extreme cases to hypertrophication. Until recently, coastal eutrophication and the ...
