About this book

Presenting important insight into the complexities of arid region hydrology, this book provides the key component to formulate and implement integrated management approaches in catchment systems. It covers basic and applied research, sustained water education, and training programs and considers the advantages of new techniques and instrumentations with adequate support of financial and human resources. Topics include catchment characteristics, rainfall runoff and harvesting, stream flow routing, groundwater hydrology, resource management, and the design of hydraulic structures. The book offers illustrative case studies, conversion tables, and modeling software.
