Abstract:

The volume is the first of a projected 12-volume report entitled, Hydrologic Engineering Methods for Water Resources Development. The report is being prepared by The Hydrologic Engineering Center as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers participation in the International Hydrological Decade. Volume 1 describes the general nature of water resources improvements and the general procedures used in hydrologic engineering studies. The types of water resources improvements covered in this volume include local flood protection, flood control by reservoirs, water supply by reservoirs, hydroelectric power developments, multipurpose reservoirs, and water resources systems. As a part of this volume, three generalized computer program descriptions covering different phases of hydrologic engineering are included. Author Modified Abstracts
