Water Resources Planning
Praise for previous editions: "The author's presentation is balanced, his references are current, and his treatment of the legal and economic aspects of water resources planning and management is particularly good . . . . Well suited to the student population for which it is intended." Environment "Provides a clear, professional, and comprehensive picture of water resources planning, and would serve as an excellent textbook or reference volume." Professional Geographer "It covers all aspects of water resource planning and management. . . . Despite the amount of ground covered, however, it is entertaining and easy to read." The Geographical Journal "Figures and tables are clear and informative. . . ." Water Resources Bulletin The revised edition of this popular text for advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate courses offers a comprehensive survey of all aspects of water resources planning and management. The third edition includes a new chapter on stormwater runoff management and a significantly revised chapter on water resources modeling, as well as updated information on water use trends. Discussions of international trends toward water pricing, privatization, and globalization of water resources provide a look at the possible future use and management of the world's water resources. Website references are added throughout the text that provide easy access to the vast array of relevant internet information on water resources and a new appendix gives information on a number of important water resources."
