Water by Luna B Leopold( Book )

108 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in 9 languages and held by 2,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the nature and uses of water, the effect of water in absorbing energy and moderating the climate, erosion, the importance of the water supply, water treatment and pollution
Fluvial processes in geomorphology by Luna B Leopold( Book )

41 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pioneering study of landform development under processes associated with running water, this text encompasses both field and laboratory research. Topics include the landscapes of mountains, rivers, and seacoasts; studies of weathering, climate, and erosion; and coverage of geochronology, drainage patterns, channel changes, and the evolution of hill slopes. 1964 edition

A view of the river by Luna B Leopold( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the Midwest under water, America had a chance to see how effectively it had "improved" its rivers. We've straightened and dredged them, revetted and rerouted them, made massive efforts to control them, yet our actions have been less than successful. Too often, physical changes made to a river conflict with natural processes, resulting in - rather than alleviating - damage. Applying available knowledge on how rivers form and act could prevent such problems. In this timely book, Luna Leopold seeks to organize such knowledge. Widely regarded as the most creative scholar in the field of river morphology, Leopold presents a coherent description of the river, its shape, size, organization, and action, along with a consistent theory that explains much of the observed character of channels. The laws of physics that govern rivers allow for variations, many of them dictated by random chance. Thus, a river's adaptation, as Leopold describes it, tends toward the most probable form, the one with the least variance among hydraulic parameters. We see how this probabilistic tendency plays out as Leopold views the river as a whole from headwater to mouth, in the drainage net, in the behavior of meanders, and in aspects of sediment transport. Grounded in hydraulics, geomorphology, and surveying, as well as in extensive fieldwork on rivers in the eastern and Rocky Mountain states, Leopold's view of a river is at once technical and personal, providing both a firm foundation for understanding the behavior of rivers - including instructions for getting started in backyard hydrology - and a wealth of firsthand observations by a thoughtful and experienced scientist. It will be of immediate interest and great use as we seek to develop, preserve, and appreciate our most fluid natural resource
Water, rivers, and creeks by Luna B Leopold( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By integrating the basics of hydrology and geomorphology with the practical formulation of policy, this book is intended for the general public, students of environmental studies, legislators, policy makers, and all others who are interested in the use, control, and management of water."--Jacket
The flood control controversy; big dams, little dams, and land management by Luna B Leopold( Book )

A procedure for evaluating environmental impact by Geological Survey (U.S.)( Book )

17 editions published between 1971 and 1991 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report contains one of the first procedures available to environmental impact statements. The heart of the system is a matrix which is general enough to be used as a reference checklist or a reminder of the full range of actions and impacts on the environment that may relate to any proposed action. This comparatively simple system is intended as a guide for the many people who are faced with the preparation of reports. The matrix is composed of two axes: 1) Existing Characteristics and Conditions of the Environment; and, 2) Proposed Actions which May Cause Environmental Impact. The first has the following major divisions: Physical and Chemical Characteristics, Biological Conditions, Cultural Factors, and, Ecological Relationships. The second has the following: Modification of Regime, Land Transformation and Construction, Resource Extraction, Processing, Land Alteration, Resource Renewal, Change in Traffic, Waster Emplacement and Treatment, Chemical Treatment, and Accidents.

Round River; from the journals of Aldo Leopold by Aldo Leopold( Book )

9 editions published between 1953 and 1993 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To those who know the charm of Aldo Leopold's writing in A Sand County Almanac, this collection from his journals and essays will be a new delight. The journal entries included here were written in camp during his many field trips--hunting, fishing, and exploring--and they indicate the source of ideas on land ethics found in his longer essays. They reflect as well two long canoe trips in Canada and a sojourn in Mexico, where Leopold hunted deer with bow and arrow. The essays presented here are culled from the more contemplative notes which were still in manuscript form at the time of Leopold's
