The third edition of this best-selling textbook combines thorough coverage of fundamental theory with a wide ranging treatment of contemporary applications. The chapters on sediment transport, river engineering, wave theory and coastal engineering have been extensively updated, and there is a new chapter on computational modelling. The authors illustrate applications of computer and physical simulation techniques in modern design. The book is an invaluable resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental, and public health engineering and associated disciplines. It is comprehensive, fully illustrated and contains many worked examples, taking a holistic view of the water cycles, many aspects of which are critical for future sustainable development.

Restoring Streams in Cities

Conventional engineering solutions to problems of flooding and erosion are extremely destructive to natural environments. Restoring Streams in Cities presents viable alternatives to traditional practices that can be used both to repair existing ecological damage and to prevent such damage from happening.Ann L. Riley describes an interdisciplinary approach to stream management that does not attempt to "control" streams, but rather considers the stream as a feature in the urban environment. She presents a logical sequence of land-use planning, site design, and watershed restoration measures along with stream channel modifications and floodproofing strategies that can be used in place of destructive and expensive public works projects. She features examples of effective and environmentally sensitive bank stabilization and flood damage reduction projects, with information on both the planning processes and end results. Chapters provide: background needed to make intelligent choices, ask necessary questions, and hire the right professional help history of urban stream management and restoration information on federal programs, technical assistance and funding opportunities in-depth guidance on implementing projects: collecting watershed and stream channel data, installing revegetation projects, protecting buildings from overbank stream flowsProfusely illustrated and including more than 100 photos, Restoring Streams in Cities includes detailed information on all relevant components of stream restoration projects, from historical background to hands-on techniques. It represents the first comprehensive volume aimed at helping those involved with stream management in their community, and describes a wealth of options for the treatment of urban streams that will be useful to concerned citizens and professional engineers alike.

Im Hotel bin ich zu Gast, im Camper bin ich zu Hause Egal ob auf Korsika oder in schwedischen Wäldern, Bettina Tietjen parkt seit vielen Jahren ihr Wohnmobil glückselig vorwärts, rückwärts und seitwärts ein. Mit ihrer Familie genießt sie dasLeben ohne Dresscode oder festes Ziel- und ist das Wetter schlecht, fährt man einfach an einen anderen Ort. Ihre Liebeserklärung an das Campen handelt von derFreiheit unterm Sternenhimmel, der Suche nach dem besten Platz für Van und Hängematte, es geht um brünftige Zeltnachbarn, tierische Besucher und anderekuriose Begegnungen. Wenn einem zum Beispiel beim geruchsintensiven Entleeren der Chemietoilette jemand begeistert zuruft: „Frau Tietjen, sind Sie es wirklich? Ich kenne Sie doch aus dem Fernsehen!“ - dann sind das Camping-Momente, die man nie vergisst. Yes, we camp! Die sympathische Moderatorin und Bestsellerautorin lässt uns hinter die Gardinen ihres Campers blicken
