Item description for Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters: Science and Managementof Optical Water Quality by R. J. Davies-Colley...

Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters introduces the basic concepts of aquatic optics and explains the relationships of different optical characteristics to the composition of the water and color and clarity phenomena. This scientific understanding is the basis for management of the optical quality of waters.

The practical management of color and clarity of natural waters is covered in depth with guidelines for the protection of optical water quality. Case studies illustrate concepts and management principles with practical examples such as the effects of waste discharge and of phytoplankton growth. The authors look to the future of optical water quality, identifying research needs in aquatic optics as applied to the practical problems of water management. Appendices define quantities, give measurement "recipes" and worked examples to help the reader in the practical management of optical water quality.

Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters will be of interest to water quality professionals, water resource engineers and managers, government agencies, aquatic biologists, ecologists and students in environmental management and water and wastewater courses.

Reviews - What do customers think about Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters: Science and Managementof Optical Water Quality?

Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters: Science and Management  Sep 19, 2003
"Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters is a modern classic. It is just as relevant today as when first published. The text is lucid -- the authors have taken great care to communicate clearly. The content is comprehensive; it touches on every conceivable aspect of the subject. Print quality is excellent, the figures are clear and legible, and while the photos are perhaps copies, they convey all the needed information. Besides, these photos -- in colour no less -- are available on the publisher's website ( -- something not possible heretofore. One of the best things about this book is that it draws on disparate fields of knowledge, including optical physics and the natural aquatic environment, and blends them seamlessly. Thus the book has wide relevance in the complex field of water management. This classic book "Colour and Clarity of Natural Waters" is a "must have" for any serious student or practitioner in the field."
yuk  Jun 21, 2003
This book may be useful if you can read it. It is terrible print quality, the photographs look like bad xeroxes with figure captions that are barely legible. Unless the publisher improves the quality, you are better of getting the older edition from the library.
