This Book is:
(1) Useful to water engineers, practicing hydrologists, and graduate students;
(2) New and updated techniques relevant to present day analyses;
(3) Classification of S-Y-P techniques;
(4) Worked examples of 4 streams representing world-wide variability range;
(5) Brings together both theory and application of S-Y-P techniques;
(6) On-stream and off-stream storage.
It was written by authors with extensive experience of teaching, research and consultancy in the field of water resources planning and management. The book has benefited from their extensive experience teaching this subject to graduate students from various parts of the world, and some of the worked examples have been adapted from those used in their lecture notes. The book uses clear and concise language with working examples based on four different rivers, and highlighting variations in hydrological conditions around the world. Thus in addition to demonstrating how some of the complex reservoir storage-yield-performance techniques described in the book could be implemented using real life data, the worked examples have also helped to highlight the effects which the continental hydrological differences could have on surface water storage-yield-performance functions.
Water Resources Yield has continued the tradition in two earlier books - River and Reservoir Yield and Reservoir Capacity and Yield - by providing very up-to-date review of techniques that deal with yield hydrology of streams and reservoirs. Thus in this book, recently introduced performance metrics such as resilience, vulnerability, sustainability, figures of merit, drought risk index, etc. are described in detail using worked examples. The same goes for modifications of the sequent peak algorithm and the variety of generalized storage-yield-performance functions for use without the need to analyze time series data.
It is one of the most complete reference textbooks on water resources yield assessment and is a must for all graduate students, university Professors and practitioners engaged in the subject.
