HydroLogic Solutions goes to market using the brand name StormChamber.
Mike Gummeson, NDS president, said, 'The acquisition of HydroLogic Solutions is a great addition to our already extensive line of superior quality stormwater products that are easy to install, easy to specify and deliver high performance results.
The comparison of hydrologic simulations using radar and gauge precipitation data involves the spatial and temporal resolution and coverage of the rainfall data, model mechanisms (e.g., simplicity or complexity and parameterization), and watershed characteristics (e.g., size and climatologic and physiographic settings) [15, 32].
All of those hydrologic data were excerpted from the "Hydrological Year Book" published by the Hydrological Bureau of the Ministry of Water Resources.
Development and application of a storage--release based distributed hydrologic model using GIS.
The principle of the present study is to build up a fully distributed GIS-based hydrologic model considering physiographic heterogeneity in terms of soil and land use to estimate the daily run-off.
For example, hydrologic changes in the YRB are intimately connected to all aspects of Indigenous peoples' subsistence livelihoods and culture (Wilson, 2014a).
This note will address the idea of hydrologic connectivity as a climate change issue through a multifaceted approach that looks at many impediments and advantages of adaptive management of hydrologic systems throughout the country.
'Enhancing water availability' project aims at assisting member countries in identifying the gaps in hydrologic data and improving the building of national capacities in the field of water resources data collection and analysis using modern technologies that simulate the hydrologic systems.
Rapid urbanization in watershed, with the increasing impervious area, implies both larger stormwater runoff volumes and peak flows and consequently reduces other components of the hydrologic cycle, for example, infiltration and evapotranspiration.
The closing chapters present methods for estimating the costs of deploying and maintaining stormwater controls, evaluating their performance, and modeling hydrologic processes.
