Get the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to watershed analysis and management.

In Watersheds: Processes, Assessment, and Management, author Paul DeBarry covers aspects of watershed physical processes such as assessing, classifying, and evaluating a watershed; using GIS models for watershed assessment; and effectively planning for future use and demands. He covers precipitation, ecology, geology, soils, geomorphology, hydrogeology, hydrology, water quality, hydraulics, GIS, data collection, planning, and management. And he takes you beyond theory so you learn to apply planning, management, GIS, and hydrologic engineering principles in real-world watershed management.

This concise reference manual is ideal whether you're a scientist, biologist, geologist, engineer, planner, administrator, part of a citizens group, or a practitioner seeking to identify what is important in the watershed being studied.

The most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to watershed analysis and management

Watersheds: Processes, Assessment, and Management covers aspects of watershed physical processes; assessing, classifying, and evaluating a watershed; using GIS models for watershed assessment; and effectively planning for future use and demands. Topics covered include precipitation, ecology, geology, soils, geomorphology, hydrogeology, hydrology, water quality, hydraulics, GIS, data collection, planning, and management. It provides a concise reference manual for scientists, biologists, geologists, engineers, planners, administrators, and citizens groups, and serves as an aid for the practitioner to identify what is important in the watershed being studied.

Incorporating a holistic approach to watershed management that focuses on state-of-the-art technology, Watersheds offers readers a clear road map for taking a watershed assessment and management project from start to finish using the most current computer models and GIS data and tools. This comprehensive book also:

  • Explores next-generation watershed management concepts much needed and widely applicable on an international level
  • Compares various innovative management alternatives
  • Provides sufficient information to understand the analysis, planning, and management process, while guiding the reader to further research

Because various disciplines define or classify the same physical features and phenomenon differently, this reference illustrates the similarities and differences between numerous terms, definitions, and classifications to present interdisciplinary consistency.

Watersheds: Processes, Assessment, and Management is a powerful tool for going beyond theory and applying planning, management, GIS, and hydrologic engineering principles in real-world watershed management.
