Clear, up-to-date presentation of fundamental concepts for hydrology and floodplain analysis

Hydrology and Floodplain Analysis, 6th Edition offers a clear and up-to-date presentation of fundamental concepts and design methods required to understand hydrology and floodplain analysis. The text addresses the computational emphasis of modern hydrology and provides a balanced approach to important applications in watershed analysis, floodplain computation, flood control, urban hydrology, stormwater design, and computer modeling. Three main sections guide readers through the material, while examples, case studies, and homework problems reinforce major concepts. The 6th Edition includes brand-new chapters that cover geographical information systems (GIS) and the latest advances in computer modeling applications, along with new and updated examples and case studies.
