Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering eBook By S K Garg
About The Book
The Science of hydrology helps us in studying the depletion and relenishment of our water resources, thereby helping in its proper assessment, development, and management. This science includes surface water as well as ground water, in so far as their occurrence, properties, circulation, distribution and reactions to environment are concerned.
This book, explains this science of Hydrology in a very simple and lucid language. Besides explaining the hydrological analysis of essential topics like rainfall, infiltration, evaporation, runoff, etc, the book provides a detailed description of floods control methods, flood forecasting & emergency evacuation.
The art of storage of flood flows in dam reserviors and underground storage, for supplying water during non-monsoon months for meeting irrigation, municipal and industrial water demands, has also been lucidly explained in this book, besides covering the rarely available topics like hydrology of coastal aquifers and wells in oceanic islands.
Topics like Computer a Application in water resources systems, and Engineering Economy in water Resources planning have also been included.
The text matter has been further supported with more than 600 objective Questions, including those from the various competitive examinations.
The book, infact, is being published from the year 2010 onwards, as volume I of the set of 2 book on the composite subject of ''Water Resources Engineering'' the second volume is subtitled as ;;Irrigation Engineering & Hydraulic Structures.''
