    Groundwater Hydrology of Water Resource Series - Water is an essential environmental resource and one that needs to be properly managed. As the world places more emphasis on sustainable water supplies, the demand for expertise in hydrology and water resources continues to increase. This series is intended for professional engineers, who seek a firm foundation in hydrology and an ability to Reviews: 1. The southeastern United States is reported to have the world's greatest diversity of temperate fresh- water fish, with more than species (more than half of the freshwater fish species in North America) (USGS ).

Duringas part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Project, the U.S. Ground water management in the southeastern United States book Survey conducted the California Stream Quality Assessment to investigate the quality of streams in the Central California Foothills and Coastal Mountains ecoregion, United States.

The goal of the California Stream Quality Assessment Ground water management in the southeastern United States book was to assess the. In the United States the patterns of precipitation, water use, and water management problems are highly variable. In examining these patterns it is common to divide the country into relatively dry and wet regions at the th meridian.

Unsaturated Zone Hydrology for Scientists and Engineers The first edition of this book was published by Prentice Hall in It has been widely recognized as one of the finest books in the field of unsaturated zone hydrology for upper division and graduate level courses, as well as ‘the’ reference book.

The circulation of water, in any form, from the surface of the earth to the atmosphere and back again is called the hydrologic cycle. A comprehensive study of the water resources of any area must, therefore, include data on the climate of the area. The humid subtropical climate of southeast Florida is characterized by relatively high temperatures, alternating semi-annual wet and dry season.

To help protect this vital resource, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project assesses groundwater quality in aquifers that are important sources of drinking water.

Water management and control of karst aquifers, protection measures against the potential pollution of karstic surfaces and groundwater, difficult construction of human-made structures in karst and their influence on the environment, and protection of geo- and bioheritage objects are all important aspects that require careful study to ensure.

Efficient irrigation systems and water management practices can help maintain farm profitability in an era of increasingly limited and more costly water supplies. Ground-water quality is generally good in three urban areas studied in the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States-Ocala and Tampa, Florida, and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The hydrology of these areas differs in that Ocala has many karst depressions but virtually no surface-water features, and Tampa and Virginia Beach have numerous.

Rivers of Empire is a very good history of the development of water resources in the West wrapped in a classically Marxist view of history as pre-determined and layered with a patina of environmentalism.

The Atchafalaya Swamp at the lower end of the Mississippi River is the largest swamp in the United is an important example of southern cypress swamp but it has been greatly altered by logging, drainage and levee construction.

Other famous swamps in the United States are the forested portions of the Everglades, Okefenokee Swamp, Barley Barber Swamp, Great Cypress Swamp and the Great. The three states have feuded since over how to divide the water, but the drought has exacerbated the problem as the various parties fight over a much-reduced volume of water.
