Available Materials on Groundwater

I have taken this opportunity to highlight some of the available materials on groundwater, as seen in the gallery below. There is a newer version to the text Groundwater for Geophysics edited by R. Kirsch, however, the one highlighted below is regarded as a good reference resource for the detection of groundwater sources through the use of geophysics. Persons wishing to view any of these resources can email me or visit me at my desk.

GIS and the Environment

The materials presented in our last book display were well-appreciated. However, persons are always welcome to give recommendations on material they wish to see in the library since the library is for the clients.

This week’s book display would be highlighting documents that deal with GIS and the Environment.

Enjoy and happy reading!

Webinar: Flood Best Practices – Protecting People and Property with GIS

This webinar, which is available live and on demand, is one of the free webinars offered by Forester University.

Sponsored by one of our suppliers of GIS materials, ESRI, attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Learn how to transition your flood control systems from paper to Web GIS
  • Gain GIS real-world best practices, and how you apply these to better manage your flood control system performance
  • Understand how to use GIS to post flood event response, and gather documentation to recover disaster-related funds and justify post-environmental clearance requirements
  • Get a preview of next generation flood management solutions, and learn how you can use web GIS technology to modernize your existing systems

For more information, as well as, to enroll in this course, persons can use the following link: Flood Best Practices – Protecting People and Property with GIS.

GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource Science and Engineering by Barnali Dixon, Venkatesh Uddameri

The textbook “GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource and Science Engineering” (2015) provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of geographic information systems, as well as, demonstrates how GIS and mathematical models can be integrated to develop spatial decision support systems to support water resources planning, management and engineering.

Open Access (International Association of Hydrological Sciences)

Hey guys as you may know, we are expecting a 2015 subscription for the Hydrological Sciences Journal published by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

Due to assistance from one of our colleagues, I have been made aware of an open access publication to refereed proceedings in hydrology provided by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences. Thus one can easily access abstracts and PDFs.

Thus one can access articles in relation to hydrology from 2014 to 2015. Topics on which information is provided include hydrologic models, flood risks, remote sensing and GIS, water scarcity, sedimentation, climate change and land use to name a few.
