  • Managing Climate Risk in Water Supply Systems

    Water resources systems provide multiple services and, if managed properly, can contribute significantly to social well-being and economic growth. However, extreme or unexpected hydroclimatic conditions, such as droughts and floods, can adversely affect or even completely interrupt these services.  This manual seeks to provide knowledge, resources ...

  • Impacts of Climate Change on Rainfall Extremes and Urban Drainage Systems

    Impacts of Climate Change on Rainfall Extremes and Urban Drainage Systems provides a state-of-the-art overview of existing methodologies and relevant results related to the assessment of the climate change impacts on urban rainfall extremes as well as on urban hydrology and hydraulics. This overview focuses mainly on several difficulties and ...

  • Okavango Delta: Floods of Life

    Wetland ecosystems and the amazing diversity of plants and animals that inhabit them are thought to be more threatened than any other ecosystem. The Okavango Delta, as the world's largest inland delta, is no exception. This book, published for World Wetlands Day, is both a celebration of the diversity of aquatic life in the Okavango Delta, and is ...

  • Hydroclimatology: Perspectives and Applications

    Hydroclimatology provides a systematic structure for analysing how the climate system causes time and space variations (both global and local) in the hydrologic cycle. Changes in the relationship between the climate system and the hydrologic cycle underlie floods, drought and possible future influences of global warming on water resources. ...

  • Ecological Climatology: Concepts and Applications, 2nd Edition

    This book reviews basic meteorological, hydrological and ecological concepts to examine the physical, chemical and biological processes by which terrestrial ecosystems affect and are affected by climate. The textbook is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying ecology, environmental science, atmospheric science and ...

  • From Headwaters to the Ocean: Hydrological Change and Water Management - Hydrochange 2008, 1-3 October 2008, Kyoto, Japan

    The vulnerability of water resources due to climate change and human activities is globally increasing. The phenomenon of hydrological change is complicated because of the combinations and interactions between natural climate fluctuation, global warming and human activities including changes in land utilization. The impact areas of hydrological ...

  • 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 ...

  • Hydrometry, 3rd edition: A comprehensive introduction to the measurement of flow in open channels UNESCO-IHE Lecture Note Series

    Hydrometry presents a thorough introduction to the measurement of flow in open channels. Dealing with traditional techniques as well as innovative new methods and instruments, the text is in line with the latest ISO standards. It discusses the main themes of hydrometry— the measurement of water levels and bed levels as well as the measurement of ...

  • Inverse Theory for Petroleum Reservoir Characterization and History Matching

    This book is a guide to the use of inverse theory for estimation and conditional simulation of flow and transport parameters in porous media. It describes the theory and practice of estimating properties of underground petroleum reservoirs from measurements of flow in wells, and it explains how to characterize the uncertainty in such estimates. ...

  • Coastal Watershed Management

    Coastal watersheds differ from others by their unique features, including proximity to the ocean, weather and rainfall patterns, subsurface features, and land covers. Land use changes and competing needs for valuable water and land resources are especially more distinctive to such watersheds.This book covers recent research relevant to coastal ...

  • Wadi Hydrology

    The literature of hydrology abounds with texts on the hydrological and water resource problems the humid regions. However, this is not the case for the arid or semi arid regions. The situation is exemplified by the fact a concrete definition for the term “wadi”, as accepted by UNESCO for describing these areas, is difficult to find. ...

  • Geological Fluid Dynamics: Sub-surface Flow and Reactions

    This book is the long-awaited successor to Owen Phillips’s classic textbook, Flow and Reactions in Permeable Rocks, published in 1991. In the intervening 18 years between the two, significant advances have been made to our understanding of subterranean flow, especially through the vast amount of research into underground storage of nuclear waste ...

  • Advances in Isotope Hydrology and its Role in Sustainable Water Resources Management - Proceedings of a Symposium held in Vienna, 21-25 May 2007

    This is the proceedings of a symposium which was convened with the objectives of: reviewing the state of the art in isotope hydrology, outlining recent developments in the application of isotope techniques to water resources management, and identifying future trends and developments for research and applications. The breadth of topics addressed ...

  • Urban Water Cycle Processes and Interactions

    Effective Management of urban water should be based on a scientific understanding of the impact of human activity on both the urban hydrological cycle - including its processes and interactions - and the environment itself. Such anthropogenic impacts, which vary broadly in time and space, need to be quantified with respect to local climate, urban ...

  • Urban Water Cycle Processes and Interactions: Urban Water Series - UNESCO-IHP

    Urban Water Cycle Processes and Interactions represents the fruit of a project by UNESCO´s International Hydrological Programme on this topic. The volume begins by introducing the urban water cycle concept and the need for integrated or total management. It then explores in detail the manifold hydrological components of the cycle, the diverse ...
