Provides the tools needed to control and remediate the quality of natural water systems
Now in its Second Edition, this acclaimed text sets forth core concepts and principles that govern the fate and transport of contaminants in water, giving environmental and civil engineers and students a full set of tools to design systems that effectively control and remediate the quality of natural waters. Readers will find coverage of all major classes of water bodies. Moreover, the author discusses the terrestrial fate and transport of contaminants in watersheds, underscoring the link between terrestrial loadings and water pollution.
Water-Quality Engineering in Natural Systems begins with an introduction exploring the sources of water pollution and the control of water pollution. It then presents the fundamentals of fate and transport, including the derivation and application of the advection?diffusion equation. Next, the text covers issues that are unique to:
The final two chapters are dedicated to analyzing water-quality measurements and modeling water quality.
This Second Edition is thoroughly updated based on the latest findings, practices, and standards. In particular, readers will find new methods for calculating total maximum daily loads for river contaminants, with specific examples detailing the fate and transport of bacteria, a pressing problem throughout the world.
With end-of-chapter problems and plenty of worked examples, Water-Quality Engineering in Natural Systems enables readers to not only understand what happens to contaminants in water, but also design systems to protect people from toxic pollutants.
Valuable for consultants and regulators...Dream is a useful tool for basic field work, including the first-cut evaluation of remediation design. Ground water professionals will find Dream to be ideal for estimating actual flow conditions when information on aquifer properties is limited. Flow nets, streamline plots, and capture zone maps are easily produced by contouring Dream's output files. Maps of head, drawdown, and ground water velocity are equally simple to create. These provide an uncomplicated method for estimating both direction and magnitude of flow, and the areal extent of the well's influence. This must-have volume is valuable for hydrologists, regulators, ground water professionals, students, professors, and consultants. This work is a valuable teaching tool for principles of subsurface hydrology. It is easy-to-use and illustrates hydrologic concepts, pumping schemes, remediation schemes, etc. The importance of fundamental aquifer properties can be easily explored, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Believe it or not, there are fundamental and effective strategies on ways to keep your basement dry and usable. And I give them all to you within this guide. You will finally learn how to: Quickly assess your basement waterproofing needs and quickly draw up a plan to eliminate water.
PL/SQL is the Oracle Procedural Language extension of SQL. PL/SQL is integrated within the Oracle database. A PL/SQL program can have both SQL statements and procedural statements. In the program, the SQL statements are used to access sets of data stored in a database, while the procedural statements are used to process individual piece of data and control the program flow, by applying, for example, the PL/SQL's if-then-else and looping structures. This book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming Fundamentals By Examples, is for PL/SQL beginners. If you have no prior or limited skill of PL/SQL, and you want to learn the Oracle PL/SQL programming language the practical way, then this book is perfect for you. When you finish reading the book and trying its examples, you would have equipped yourself with PL/SQL fundamental skills to start writing some PL/SQL programs for a real-world development project. Source codes listing of the examples are included in the Appendix of the book.
This volume presents a selection of the main contributions made to the international conference on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) entitled 'Management of Water in a Changing World: Lessons Learnt and Innovative Perspectives' that was held from 12 to 13 October 2011 in Dresden, Germany.
