Kinematic wave (KW) modeling methods are gaining wide acceptance as fast and accurate methods for handling a wide range of water modeling problems. This book provides a through reference to the application of KW methods to such problems as the spatial representation of watersheds, overland flow routing, and channel flow routing.
