Document Water Resources Systems Planning and Management - an introduction to methods, models and applications

This book introduces the use of quantitative methods for identifying and evaluating alternative water resources management plans and policies. It can serve water resources engineers and planners as a useful guide. It presents ways of obtaining useful information for managing the world’s vital water resources. The book builds on ‘Water Resources Systems Planning and Analysis’ by Loucks, Stedinger and Haith, published by Prentice Hall in 1981. It not only rigorously updates this text, but it also introduces new modelling methods and case studies. The graphics presented are innovative and in colour. The enclosed CD contains exercises, software and copies of all the figures and tables for use in presentations.
