Water resources systems analysis

Title (user) : Water resources systems analysisISBN : 1566706424,9781566706421GoogleBook ID : TA7FQgAACAAJOpenLibrary ID : OL15570160MEdition : 1Authors (user) : Mohammad Karamouz, Ferenc Szidarovszky, Banafsheh ZahraieAuthors (google) : Mohammad Karamouz,Ferenc Szidarovszky,Banafsheh ZahraiePublisher : Lewis PublishersLanguage : EnglishPublication Date : 2003File Format : pdfCategories : Technology & Engineering------------------------------------------Description (user) : Experience has shown that structural solutions for water diversion, conservation, and transfer are not always the most efficient and economically sound alternatives. New, non-structural means of solving problems must be used to guarantee safe and efficient allocation of water to domestic, agricultural, and industrial customers.Focusing on conflict resolution, Water Resources Systems Analysis discusses systematic approaches for the mathematical modeling of various water resources issues, helping decision-makers allocate water effectively and efficiently. Readers will gain an understanding of simulation, optimization, multi-criterion-decision-making, as well as engineering economics and time series analysis, all necessary for successful water resources systems analysis. The book explores recent developments in surface and groundwater systems optimization and modeling, and relates these to real field applications and case studies.Supported by essential mathematical tools, this book gives current and future hydrologists, water resources managers, and civil engineers a logical reference for prioritizing and addressing critical issues such as flood control, power generation, and water quality management.------------------------------------------Description (google) : Focusing on conflict resolution, Water Resources Systems Analysis discusses systematic approaches to the mathematical modeling of various water resources issues, which helps decision-makers allocate water effectively and efficiently.
