About this book

Highlighting a wide variety of recent advances in the planning, design and management of river basin systems, this book contains the edited papers presented at the second international conference on this subject. The contributions featured come from researchers working in many different countries and cover topics such as hydraulics and hydrology; integrated watershed planning; river and watershed management; water resources management; water quality and environmental modelling; flood risk; ecological perspectives; MIS, GIS and remote sensing; and sediment transport.


Section 1 Hydraulics and hydrology: Quantitative assessment of the most decisive factors determining river level in an estuary; Systems theoretic approach to modelling rainfall-runoff process with conceptual component; Simultaneous solution of coupled surface water/groundwater flow systems Determination of an optimal unit of hydrograph of river basin using genetic algorithm; Evaluation of some rapid flood forecast models: Topmodel & Marine; Use of HSPF in estimating future influences of climate change on watersheds; Comparison between open channel flow models in natural rivers; Numerical modelling of turbulent flow in a square river harbour. Section 2 Integrated watershed planning: Internal consistency as guiding principle for integrated system modelling South Africa's new approach to integrated catchment management to ensure equitable, sustainable and efficient use of the country's water resources; Optimising the River Karun system, Iran; Estimation of the torrential environment (potential) of isle Zakynthos (Greece) using GIS; Water, environment and food security: a case study of the Haihe River basin in China. Section 3 River and watershed management: Methodology for the development of river sub-basin management plans - Concept and application; Optimal daily operation of reservoirs subject to probabilistic flood constraints. Section 4 Water resources management: Assessment of hydrological characteristics in the upper Citarum catchment, West Java; A knowledge-based decision support system for river basin management; Optimizing cropping pattern to maximize water productivity; Implementation of regulatory directives for a water supply reservoir - a case history of Crystal Springs Dam in San Francisco Peninsula, California, U.S.A.; Optimum allocation of Hirmand river water in Sistan area.
