The New Rivers Wildlife Handbook

Author: Diana Ward
ISBN: CORNELL:31924073857439
Release Date: 1994
Genre: Ecology

This handbook describes the wildlife that depends on rivers, from plants to mammals, birds and fish and explains how to manage habitat for wildlife. It is divided into three sections: river processes and biology, survey methods and management practices to benefit wildlife. These are supplemented by a variety of appropriate case studies. The book aims to answer the questions of river engineers and conservation managers, in relation to rivers and wildlife.

Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering Fifth Edition

Author: Andrew Chadwick
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9780415672450
Release Date: 2013-02-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Now in its fifth edition, Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering combines thorough coverage of the basic principles of civil engineering hydraulics with wide-ranging treatment of practical, real-world applications. This classic text is carefully structured into two parts to address principles before moving on to more advanced topics. The first part focuses on fundamentals, including hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, pipe and open channel flow, wave theory, physical modeling, hydrology, and sediment transport. The second part illustrates the engineering applications of these fundamental principles to pipeline system design; hydraulic structures; and river, canal, and coastal engineering—including up-to-date environmental implications. A chapter on computational hydraulics demonstrates the application of computational simulation techniques to modern design in a variety of contexts. What’s New in This Edition Substantive revisions of the chapters on hydraulic machines, flood hydrology, and computational modeling New material added to the chapters on hydrostatics, principles of fluid flow, behavior of real fluids, open channel flow, pressure surge in pipelines, wave theory, sediment transport, river engineering, and coastal engineering The latest recommendations on climate change predictions, impacts, and adaptation measures Updated references Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Fifth Edition is an essential 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. Spreadsheets and useful links to other web pages are available on an accompanying website, and a solutions manual is available to lecturers.

Code of Practice for the Introduction of Biological and Landscape Diversity Considerations Into the Transport Sector

Author: Catherine J. Bickmore
Publisher: Council of Europe
ISBN: 9789287151155
Release Date: 2003-01-01
Genre: Science

The Pan-European Biological and Landscape Strategy (1996) aims to halt the degradation of landscape and biological diversity across the European region. Action Theme 2 of the Strategy relates to the integration of landscape and biological diversity into other sectors including transport. This Code of Practice contributes to this progress. The Code relates to linear transport systems, comprising roads, railways and inland navigation along waterways, such as canals and rivers. It aims to assist elected representatives, decision makers, and practitioners as well as nature conservation bodies in the understanding of the main issues and solutions associated with the planning, design and use of linear transportation networks i.e. roads, railways and inland navigation channels, in relation to the landscape and biological diversity. Other modes of transport are outside the scope of this CodeThe Code sets a political and social framework and proposes policy options for the development of new, and the maintenance of existing linear transport systems in relation to biological and landscape diversity. By building on examples, the Code has developed a series of Practice Pointers.
