Simulation models are increasingly used to investigate processes and solve practical problems in a wide variety of disciplines eg. climatology, ecology, hydrology, geomorphology, engineering. Environmental Modelling: A Practical Approach addressesthe development, testing and application of such models, which apply across traditional boundaries, and demonstrate how interactions across these boundaries can be beneficial.

  • Provides a general overview of methods and approaches as well as focusing on key subject areas written by leading practitioners in the field
  • Assesses the advantages and disadvantages of different models used and provides case studies supported with data, output, tutorial exercises and links to the model and/or model applications via the book's website
  • Covers major developments in the field, eg. the use of GIS and remote sensing techniques, and scaling issues
  • As associated website contains colour images, as well as links to www resources
