  • Watershed Models

    Watershed modeling is at the heart of modern hydrology, supplying rich information that is vital to addressing resource planning, environmental, and social problems. Even in light of this important role, many books relegate the subject to a single chapter while books devoted to modeling focus only on a specific area of application. Recognizing the ...

  • Economics and Ecological Risk Assessment: Applications to Watershed Management

    With contributions from a wide array of economists, ecologists, and government agency professionals, Economics and Ecological Risk Assessment: Applications to Watershed Management provides a multidisciplinary approach to environmental decision-making at a watershed level. It introduces the fields of ecological risk assessment (ERA) and economic ...

  • GIS for Water Resource and Watershed Management

    The use of GIS, and its application for solving environmental problems is growing rapidly. This powerful set of tools can be used to great effect in hydrological modeling, environment and habitat assessments, ecosystem studies, monitoring of wetlands and forested watersheds, urban studies, agricultural impact assessment and much more. GIS for ...

  • Watershed Health Monitoring: Emerging Technologies

    Watershed Health Monitoring: Emerging Technologies is a concise reference that defines the concept of watershed health and explains that monitoring the health of watersheds is a critical precursor to adaptive resource management on a watershed basis. The focus of the text is a clear description of an innovative 'Closed Loop' model that specifies ...

  • The Watershed Project Management Guide

    A key question for individuals involved in managing watersheds is, 'What is an effective process that will integrate science, policy, and public participation in order to help manage water resources effectively?' The Watershed Project Management Guide presents a four-phase approach to watershed management that is based on a collaborative process ...

  • Biogeochemical Investigations at the Watershed, Landscape, and Regional Scales

    This volume contains reviewed papers from BIOGEOMON, The Third International Symposium on Ecosystem Behavior, held at Villanova University in June 1997 and attended by over 240 participants from 28 countries. Earlier BIOGEOMON meetings emphasized mostly geochemical research conducted in small watersheds. As is evident from this collection of ...

  • The Atna River: Studies in an Alpine-Boreal Watershed

    This volume presents a unique set of time series data concerning the environmental and biological dynamics of a pristine alpine-boreal river system in Norway. A simultaneous collection of data on climate, hydrology, erosion, water chemistry, primary production, invertebrates and fish provides an unusual insight into the ecology of a watercourse ...

  • The Fernow Watershed Acidification Study

    The Fernow Watershed Acidification Study is a long-term, paired watershed acidification study, undertaken in the central Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, USA. The Study, which began in 1989, includes research on biogeochemical responses of streams, soils and vegetation to air pollution, and also includes research on acidification’s effects ...

  • Sustainable Use and Development of Watersheds

    This book is a result of the NATO-SPS (NFA) Workshop held in Istanbul, Turkey, in October 2007. The main goal of the Workshop was to provide knowledge and build the skills of scientists, engineers, and decision- and policy-makers for the effective management of watersheds and prevention of or coping with catastrophic events. The aim of this effort ...

  • Monitoring Ecological Condition in the Western United States

    This volume is the proceedings of a symposium held on April 6-8, 1999, in San Francisco, CA, USA, and sponsored by the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP). EMAP is the primary program of the EPA's Office of Research and Development to advance the science of statistically-based ...

  • Remote Sensing and Geospatial Technologies for Coastal Ecosystem Assessment and Management

    In this landmark publication, leading experts detail how remote sensing and related geospatial technologies can be used for coastal ecosystem assessment and management.This book is divided into three major parts. In the first part several conceptual and technical issues of applying remote sensing and geospatial technologies in the coastal ...

  • The Bear Brook Watershed in Maine

    The Bear Brook Watershed in Maine (BBWM) is a long-term, whole-watershed study examining the effects of experimentally elevated N and S deposition on a treated watershed, in comparison to the adjacent reference watershed. The study is in a northern New England, USA, forested ecosystem, and focuses on soil and stream hydrological and ...

  • Nitrogen Cycling in the North Atlantic Ocean and Its Watersheds

    Human activity has dramatically altered the global nitrogen cycle in recent decades. These changes are not evenly distributed around the world; rather, they are greatest in regions of significant industrial and agricultural activity, as the synthesis and use of inorganic fertilizers, cultivation of legumes, burning of fossil fuels, and the ...

  • Regionalization of Watersheds

    Design of water control structures, reservoir management, economic evaluation of flood protection projects, land use planning and management, flood insurance assessment, and other projects rely on knowledge of magnitude and frequency of floods. Often, estimation of floods is not easy because of lack of flood records at the target sites. Regional ...
