The hydrological regime in these areas is extreme and highly variable, and they face great pressures to deliver and manage freshwater resources. However, there is no guidance on the decision support tools that are needed to underpin flood and water resource management in .   Hydrological Modelling in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas by Howard Wheater, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.3/5(1).

Sorooshian [and others] --Modelling semi-arid and arid hydrology and water resources: the southern Africa experience / D.A. Hughes --Use of the IHACRES. However, the hydrology of arid and semi-arid areas is very different from that of humid regions, and there is little guidance on the special challenges of groundwater modelling for these areas. This book brings together the experience of internationally leading experts to fill a gap in the scientific and technical literature. 1.

Hsu, B. Imam and Y. Hong Modelling semi-arid and arid hydrology and water resources - the southern Africa experience D. A. Hydrological Modelling in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas. Arid and semi-arid regions are defined as areas where water is at its most scarce. The hydrological regime in these areas is extreme and highly variable, where flash floods from a single large storm can exceed the total runoff from a sequence of years.

This book presents chapters from. 1 Modelling hydrological processes in arid and semi-arid areas: an introduction to the workshop H. S. Wheater. INTRODUCTIONx. In the arid and semi-arid regions of the world, water resources are limited, and under severe and increasing pressure due to expanding populations, increasing per capita water use and irrigation. This book is the product of an international workshop initiated by UNESCO to discuss the hydrological modelling tools required to support water management in these areas. There are 11 chapters included in this book. Chapter 1 provides a review of some of the special hydrological features of arid areas and an introduction to modelling by:
