The nascent science of Hydroinformatics comprises the application of information technology to the understanding and control of the waters of the world, the very arteries and viens of the biosphere. This book explains how information technology is already being used to realise a new solicitude towards nature and it provides a philosophical framework for these new ideas. It signposts further developments in this directions, and is illustrated by carefully chosen examples taken from current hydraulic engineering projects.

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 book is an introduction to hydroinformatics applied to urban water management. It shows how to make the best use of information and communication technologies for manipulating information to manage water in the urban environment. The book covers the acquisition and analysis of data from urban water systems to instantiate mathematical models or calculations, which describe identified physical processes. The models are operated within prescribed management procedures to inform decision makers, who are responsible to recognized stakeholders. The application is to the major components of the urban water environment, namely water supply, treatment and distribution, wastewater and stormwater collection, treatment and impact on receiving waters, and groundwater and urban flooding. Urban Hydroinformatics pays particular attention to modeling, decision support through procedures, economics and management, and implementation in both developed and developing countries. The book is written with post-graduates, researchers and practicing engineers who are involved in urban water management and want to improve the scope and reliability of their systems.

Hydroinformatics systems are systems that combine computational hydraulic modelling with information systems (including knowledge-based systems). They are gaining rapid acceptance in the areas of environmental planning, design and management. The present book focuses exclusively on sewage systems, starting with their planning and then going on to discuss their design, operation and rehabilitation. The very experienced authors discuss business and information needs in the management of urban drainage, tools for collecting and archiving such data, and their use in modelling catchment hydrology, sewer systems hydraulics, wastewater quality, wastewater treatment plant operation, and receiving waters. The control and operation of sewer systems in real time is described, followed by a discussion of their maintenance and rehabilitation. Intelligent decision support systems for managing the urban drainage business process are presented. Audience: Researchers into sewer design, municipal engineers, planners and managers interested in an innovative approach to all aspects of the planning, design and operation of sewer systems.

The intent of this book is to provide the reader a basic knowledge over some principles in the field of hydroinformatics. Each chapter provides some insight over common concepts in the area, and some examples clarify the application of the developed concepts.The book contains Two Sections and is divided into 18 chapters. Section One covers 13 Chapters and Chapters 14-18 are covered in Section Two.The first chapter provides a brief introduction to the usefulness of hydroinformatics as an applied science. It also gives some insight on the integration between hydroinformatics and society, how one exchange information with the other, additionally how hydroinformatics is beneficial to the society is a whole.The second chapter gives an overview of how the management of watershed interacts between the management teams, government agencies and the society. We also mention common issues that should be addressed when planning and operating water systemsIn the third chapter, the issue of data acquiring and processing is addressed. Some common techniques and instrumentation to collect data from rainfall, wind, temperature and terrain are presented, as well as some advantages and disadvantages of common techniques.Chapter 4 introduces modelling techniques of the area, and common mathematical methods used for different models. Special attention is given at the beginning of the chapter to the UML (Unified Modelling Language) framework, as a potential tool for the development of models.Chapters 5 and 6 give an introduction into two common modelling approaches in the field of hydroinformatics. Water quantities in a river, lake or groundwater reservoir can be predicted in relation in relation to its movement in the surface from one point to the other (flow routing), or to the amount of evaporation, transpiration and rainfall (rainfall-runoff). Some common modelling techniques are mentioned, and applied examples clarifies some cases.In chapter 7 the modelling of dams is presented. Some common structures and instrumentations are mentioned, with their specific properties and applications, as well as some examples.Chapters 8 and 9 are related to the presence of other materials in a water system. If it is necessary to know how the material is transported in the water system, then the focus is the Sediment Transport Modelling (Section 8). On the other hand, if the focus is how the material contaminates the water system and changes its use, for instance from drinking water to a degraded system, then water quality modelling (Section 9) is an useful tool to be applied. Data-based modelling is presented in chapters 10, 11 and 12. While section 10 just gives a brief introduction of what actually is the data-based modelling technique, section 11 shows the application of some linear models, while section 1^2 deals with some common non-linear techniques, some of them still in a very early stage of development.Suggestions for a deeper understanding of some concepts in the area is addressed in chapter 13. Chapters 14-17 bring together research studies and papers, which illustrate some of the developments and applications in the field of hydroinformatics and also give a way forward for future research and application.I hope that this will help to further raise the awareness of the subject and its developments and applications.
