Hydroinformatics: Information Technology and the Aquatic Environment
The nascent science of Hydroinformatics comprises the application of information technology to the understanding and control of the waters of the world, the very arteries and viens of the biosphere. This book explains how information technology is already being used to realise a new solicitude towards nature and it provides a philosophical framework for these new ideas. It signposts further developments in this directions, and is illustrated by carefully chosen examples taken from current hydraulic engineering projects.
