Modern hydrology is more interdisciplinary than ever. Staggering amounts and varieties of information pour in from GIS and remote sensing systems every day, and this information must be collected, interpreted, and shared efficiently. Hydroinformatics: Data Integrative Approaches in Computation, Analysis, and Modeling introduces the tools, approaches, and system considerations necessary to take full advantage of the abundant hydrological data available today. Linking hydrological science with computer engineering, networking, and database science, this book lays a pedagogical foundation in the concepts underlying developments in hydroinformatics. It begins with an introduction to data representation through Unified Modeling Language (UML), followed by digital libraries, metadata, the basics of data models, and Modelshed, a new hydrological data model. Building on this platform, the book discusses integrating and managing diverse data in large datasets, data communication issues such as XML and Grid computing, the basic principles of data processing and analysis including feature extraction and spatial registration, and modern methods of soft computing such as neural networks and genetic algorithms. Today, hydrological data are increasingly rich, complex, and multidimensional. Providing a thorough compendium of techniques and methodologies, Hydroinformatics: Data Integrative Approaches in Computation, Analysis, and Modeling is the first reference to supply the tools necessary to confront these challenges successfully.

This guide to creating a dynamic GIS data model helps database managers design a schema that has comprehensive and descriptive query definitions, a user-friendly cartographic display, and increased performance standards. The five steps for taking a data model through its conceptual, logical, and physical phases, including modeling the user's view, defining objects and relationships, selecting geographic representations, matching geodatabase elements, and organizing the geodatabase structure are studied in detail. A look at nine decision points that deal with concerns common to all data modeling exercises, such as validating feature geometries, modeling linear networks, managing raster data, and labeling map features help database managers fine-tune their GIS data models. Several design models for a variety of applications are considered including addresses and locations, census units and boundaries, stream and river networks, and topography and the base map.

GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource Science and Engineering not only provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of geographic information systems but also demonstrates how GIS and mathematical models can be integrated to develop spatial decision support systems to support water resources planning, management and engineering. The book uses a hands-on active learning approach to introduce fundamental concepts and numerous case-studies are provided to reinforce learning and demonstrate practical aspects. The benefits and challenges of using GIS in environmental and water resources fields are clearly tackled in this book, demonstrating how these technologies can be used to harness increasingly available digital data to develop spatially-oriented sustainable solutions. In addition to providing a strong grounding on fundamentals, the book also demonstrates how GIS can be combined with traditional physics-based and statistical models as well as information-theoretic tools like neural networks and fuzzy set theory.

River Basin Management is a collection of papers presented at a conference on implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive, held in Budapest in May 2005. The Water Framework Directive requires progressive protection and enhancement to rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal waters and wetlands by the year 2015. At the heart of this major new piece of legislation is the requirement for all EU member states to prepare river basin management plans for all river basin catchments, providing the basis for coordinated improvements to water management, leading to better water quality and sustainable aquatic environments in lakes and rivers. The papers cover a wide range of topics including pilot studies for the development of river basin management plans, public participation in the planning process, water quality monitoring, modeling and analysis, identifying and addressing pollution and meeting environmental objectives. The book presents an array of experience from eighteen European countries in the implementation of the EU’s most far reaching environmental legislation. It is an invaluable source of information and ideas for the widespread preparation of river basin management plans now starting throughout Europe.

Ein heißer Sommertag 1914 in den australischen Blue Mountains: Die junge Angie ist rasend wütend. Warum darf sie nicht zur Geburtststagsfeier von Robbie Fox, ihrem dreizehnjährigen Freund? Seinen Eltern gehört das luxuriöse Hotel The Palace auf den Klippen über dem wilden Tal. Was niemand ahnt: Am Ende des Tages ist ein Kind tot. Und The Palace wird zum Palast der Tränen. 2013: Eine alte Frau liegt im Sterben. Immer wieder murmelt sie die Worte: "Was geschah mit Angie, dem Mädchen, das unsere Herzen brach?" Ihre Tochter Lisa hatte nie ein einfaches Verhältnis zu Monika. Diese Angie scheint der Schlüssel zum Herz ihrer Mutter zu sein. Die junge Frau beginnt, nach ihr zu suchen. Was sie findet, ist ein bewegendes Familienschicksal, eine Geschichte von Leidenschaft und Liebe, von Geheimnissen und Verrat - und den Weg zur Versöhnung "Wunderschön und poetisch." The Australian Women’s Weekly "Das Mädchen, das unsere Herzen brach" ist mit Erfahrung und Können geschrieben." JB Books "Dieser Roman sticht heraus aus den gegenwärtigen historischen Romanen, weil der Autor mit seinem enzyklopädischen Wissen und seinem ganz eigenen, faszinierenden Stil eine wunderbare Geschichte erzählt." Media and Culture "Der Roman, wie das luxuriöse Hotel, das er feiert, ist gefüllt mit Details, großen Liebesgeschichten, Tragödien, Geheimnissen, Kunst, Skandalen, Ruhm und Buschfeuern."
