Contents Notes
Introduction: Hydrological Application of GIS / A. Gurnell and D. Montgomery -- 1. Putting water in its place: a perspective on GIS in hydrology and water management / M.J. Clark -- 2. Data and databases for decision support / A.M. Roberts and R.V. Moore -- 3. The treatment of flat areas and depressions in automated drainage analysis of raster digital elevation models / L.W. Martz and J. Garbrecht -- 4. A phenomenon-based approach to upslope contributing area and depressions in DEMs / W. Rieger -- 5. Large scale distributed modelling and the utility of detailed ground data / F.G.R. Watson, R.B. Grayson and R.A. Vertessy / [and others] -- 6. Application of a GIS-based distributed hydrology model for prediction of forest harvest effects on peak streamflow in the Pacific Northwest / P. Storck, L. Bowling and P. Wetherbee / [et al.] -- 7. Modelling runoff and sediment transport in catchments using GIS / A.P.J. de Roo.
