This site hosts the academic publications of Professor Thomas Dunne. They refer to the following subjects: geomorphology; hydrology; environmental management; and public policy.

Fluvial geomorphology, referring to structure and dynamics of stream and river corridors, is especially important to understanding the formation and alteration of the stream or river channel as well as the flood plain and associated upland transitional zone; this is a critical discipline for effective, long-term watershed management. Twenty-five streams in northwestern Vermont spanning a range of geomorphic conditions were surveyed to determine the linkages between stream geomorphology, watershed condition and aquatic ecosystem health as part of an overall watershed classification project. Both field scale and watershed scale assessments were completed.

Geomorphology in 5/5(1). There are several books concerned with the application of geomorphology in environmental management. The first represents the first effort at a systematic view seen from the standpoint of geomorphologists (and is available in paperback).Cited by: 9.
Purchase Environmental Geomorphology, Volume 4 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. The topics covered are relevant to basic geomorphology as well as applied approaches in environmental and cultural geomorphology.
The book integrates a physical-human approach to geography, but focuses on physical geography and geomorphology from an integrated field-based geoscience perspective.
Conservation Land Management (CLM) is a quarterly magazine that is widely regarded as essential reading for all who are involved in land management for nature conservation, across the British Isles. CLM includes long-form articles, events listings, publication reviews, new product information and updates, reports of conferences and letters.
watershed, whereas the west side is dominated by the Redwood Creek schist. The contrasting lithologies are separated by the highly sheared, slightly metamorphosed sandstone and mudstone of the Grogan Fault zone.
Redwood Creek generally follows the trace of the fault, establishing a km-long watershed with an average width of only 9 Size: 3MB. About this book This new edition is a major revision of the popular introductory reference on hydrology and watershed management principles, methods, and applications.
The book's content and scope have been improved and condensed, with updated chapters on the management of forest, woodland, rangeland, agricultural urban, and mixed land use.
Watersheds constituted by different geology, geomorphology, climates, land uses, soils, ecological communities, and vegetation covers. The watershed landscapes have established over geologic time.
Originally published inKarst Geomorphology and Hydrology became the leading textbook on karst studies. This new textbook has been substantially revised and updated.
The first half of the book is a systematic presentation of the dissolution kinetics, chemical equilibria and physical flow laws relating to karst environments. It includes details of the many environmental.
IMPORTANCE OF GEOLOGY AND GEOMORPHOLOGY IN WATERSHED HEALTH ASSESSMENT. SUMMARY. Watersheds constituted by different geology, geomorphology, climates, land uses, soils, ecological communities, and vegetation covers. The watershed landscapes have established over geologic time while being shaped by patterns of climate, vegetation, and lithology.
Good watershed governance and management leading to human-environment health improvements (Morrison et al., ) require multi-layered interconnections of human-environment analyses achieved by Author: Zeinab Hazbavi. Introduction to Water Resources and Environmental Issues has some of the best summary, vocab, and knowledge pertaining to the subject of environmental studies.
It contains some of the best description of nature's components, which is a necessity for readers or Cited by: 7. He has a PhD in Environmental Watershed Management and Geomatics and has worked as academic staff at the University of Padova since He is an expert in digital terrain analysis, earth surface processes analysis, natural hazards, geomorphology, hydro-geomorphology, LIDAR, and structure-from-motion photogrammetry.
The book highlights current challenges and potential solutions, helping define the future direction for environmental water management. In addition, it includes a significant review of current literature and state of knowledge, providing a one-stop resource for environmental water managers.
This new edition is a major revision of the popular introductory reference on hydrology and watershed management principles, methods, and applications.

Case studies and examples throughout the book. Geomorphology and Groundwater is an up-to-the-minute collection dealing with the overlap between geomorphology and hydrogeology. These two disciplines have much to offer each other in several fields such as river groundwater interactions, the location and evolution of aquifers, karst and landform evolution.
There is increasing realisation that groundwater plays an important role in many. The Economics of Watershed Management Brent M.

Given the complexity of these two disciplines and the many linkages between them, presenting a general overview of important concepts and principles is challenging at best.
Entire books have been written about specific principles within hydrology, for example.condition of a watershed, including its water quality, its fish and wildlife, its forests and other vegetation, and the quality of community life for people who live there.
