A LIST OF RELEVANT BOOKS ABOUT HYDROLOGY, WATER RESOURCES AND RELATED AREAS

WRITTEN IN PORTUGUESE

This list contains the titles of 75 books written in Portuguese about


Hydrology, Water Resources, Hydraulics, Fluid Mechanics and other related
subjects. It’s evident that there are many other titles, but due to
personal constraints, I decided to catalog only these seventy-five books.
I’d just like to add the following four warnings.
1. They are all books written in Portuguese.
2. They are in alphabetic order.
3. The sites in which they can be bought are written only in
Portuguese.
4. At this very moment, R$ 1.00 = US$ 0.59.

BARTH, F. T. et alii. Modelos para Gerenciamento de Recursos Hídricos.
Editora Nobel, São Paulo, 1987.

My personal comments
A comprehensive book about Water Resources Management Models. It’s divided
into five parts: (1) the institutional and legal fundaments of Water
Resources Management, (2) an overview on the Hydrologic Information and
some Hydrology concepts, (3) deterministic models, (4) stochastic models,
and (5) optimization and simulation techniques applied to Water Resources
Systems. It’s a good book that could be used by any Portuguese speaker
hydrologist, in spite of the fact that a great deal of its first part is
specifically devoted to the Brazilian legislation.

This book is mainly devoted to experts who don't have in view to struggle
in vain against the droughts, but to understand the phenomena that take
part in the many different types of droughts, to surmise their occurrence,
duration and intensity, aimed at the establishment of criteria that allow
realistic decisions to be taken. In spite of the interdependence of the
chapters, they can be studied separately, turning this book into an
important handbook to be used by public managers and other decision makers.
In short, it deals with Hydrology under conditions of scarcity.

This textbook about basic Hydraulics was written by a legendary professor
of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. It can be called a “classic”
book on Hydraulics.

It’s a very good textbook on General Hydraulics. In spite of its age, it
remains useful, mainly due to the carefully derived equations of basic
concepts on Fluid Mechanics at the first part of the book.
