For undergraduate and graduate courses in Hydrology. This text offers a clear and up-to-date presentation of fundamental concepts and design methods required to understand hydrology and floodplain analysis. It addresses the computational emphasis of modern hydrology and provides a balanced approach to important applications in watershed analysis, floodplain computation, flood control, urban hydrology, stormwater design, and computer modeling.Divided into three main sectionsFirst section (Chapters 1-4): Covers traditional topics in hydrology Second section (Chapters 5-9): Designed to apply hydrologic theory and modeling techniques to several areas of engineering hydrology and design - watershed analysis, floodplain delineation, and urban stormwater. Third section (Chapters 10-12): Next generation of hydrologic computation and watershed evaluation. (GIS, DEMs, NEXRADWorked examples are used to highlight theory, problem definition, solution methods, and computational approaches Spreadsheet programs and data sets-Used in hydrology and hydraulics on a daily basis. Allows students to apply simple computer models to actual hydrology problems.
