The second edition of Streamflow Measurement meets the demands of engineers and managers in the water industry on how to obtain information on the flow in the world's rivers in view of the decreasing availability of usable water. It deals with all aspects of establishing, operating and maintaining streamflow measurement stations to ensure they provide maximum information. The data are used to plan and design efficient and cost-effective projects and developments. The book covers both traditional methods of data collection and methods involving the use of new and advanced technologies. It provides hydrologists and engineers with a complete reference from which to establish the accurate and reliable collection of information.
