The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is pleased to announce the publication of its new book Water Resources Systems Analysis through Case Studies, edited by David W. Watkins, Jr. This book consists of 10 case studies suitable for the classroom to demonstrate engineers’ use of widely available modeling software in evaluating complex environmental and water resources systems.
Water Resources Systems Analysis through Case Studies includes simulation and optimization models, visualization tools, and spatial analysis tools applied to real-life situations. Each case study includes background on the geography, hydrology, and natural resources of the area as well as relevant social, economic, developmental, and political issues. A series of active-learning exercises is provided, along with additional resources for instructors.
