Rainfall - Runoff Modelling: The Primer
John Wiley & Sons, 22 mar 2004 - 372 pagine
Rainfall-Runoff Modelling The Primer is the first comprehensive introduction and survey of rainfall-runoff modelling since 1975. Dramatic increases in computer power and spatial databases since then have made unprecedented resources available to the modeller today. However, the early modellers would not have expected that the representations of hydrological processes by computer models would have proven such a difficult scientific problem. This book provides both a primer for the novice and a detailed and practical description of techniques and difficulties demanded by more advanced users and developers. The complete range of rainfall-runoff models is reviewed including models for real time flood forecasting and for predicting the impacts of land use and climate changes with example applications. This is the first text to include methods for estimating the uncertainty in predictions as an essential tool for the novice in making hydrological predictions.
This book will appeal to the novice, final year undergraduates and graduate students, hydrological researchers and consultants, and environmental agencies.
