The objective of this book series is to introduce the research advances in water resources & environmental systems where each book will focus on a specific area of interest. It is targeted at final year and postgraduate civil engineering students with the aim of introducing the know-how and approaches in water research. In this book, we present a compilation of recent work on hydrological technologies. The five (5) chapters covers a wide range of topics from radar rainfall estimate, rainfall interception, watershed modelling using physical-based model and neural network, as well as 3D hydrodynamic modelling. It is hope that the readers will benefit from the materials presented, to be able to apply or to explore the method(s) further in your respective project or research study.
