About this book

This book provides a comprehensive discussion of hydraulic applications to a range of topical environmental issues. Introducing the field of environmental hydraulics, it presents a systematic treatment on stratified flows, water quality hydraulics, waste water hydraulics, and ecohydrodynamics. The chapters are written by leading scientists from around the world, who have long been at the forefront of research in hydraulics as applied to environment and ecology. The depth of coverage is more detailed than can be found in any other published book. This book is of use to faculty members, graduate students, and researchers engaged in environmental modeling. Civil, environmental, hydraulic, and water engineers engaged in environmental planning and management will find it to be of considerable value.
