Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
The importance of water resources and an increasing interest on improvement of out environment have identified the urgent need for methods to predict river response due to various changes resulting from proposed water resource planning. Fluvial geomorphology and hydraulic elements that are related to the interpretation and modeling of response to the problem are presented. Interpretation of alluvial rivers should be preceded by a qualitative analysis and information is presented which should be adequate to carry this out in most cases. This should be followed by a quantitative evaluation of channel response and water sediment routing using theory supplemented by physical and mathematical model studies of the system.
