This impressive publication presents the proceedings of the 1993 Toronto Stormwater and Water Quality Modelling meeting. The number of papers in the book has been substantially increased and, for the first time, the contributions have been peer reviewed for novelty, accuracy, readability, and relevance. Chapters are arranged in five sections: ecosystem impacts, water quality modelling, new methods and modelling, data management, and current practice. The appendices are valuable research aids, with a detailed index, a substantial glossary encompassing the entire discipline, lists of acronyms, models, and abbreviations, and a complete list of authors cited in the book. The editor also provides a classification of the 485 papers of the 11-year series of conferences held at the University of Kentucky at Louisville.
