Water by Luna B Leopold( Book )
87 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in 8 languages and held by 3,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses the nature and uses of water, the effect of water in absorbing energy and moderating the climate, erosion, the importance of the water supply, water treatment and pollution
Fluvial processes in geomorphology by Luna B Leopold( Book )
33 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A pioneering study of landform development under processes associated with running water, this text encompasses both field and laboratory research. Topics include the landscapes of mountains, rivers, and seacoasts; studies of weathering, climate, and erosion; and coverage of geochronology, drainage patterns, channel changes, and the evolution of hill slopes. 1964 edition

A view of the river by Luna B Leopold( Book )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the Midwest under water, America had a chance to see how effectively it had "improved" its rivers. We've straightened and dredged them, revetted and rerouted them, made massive efforts to control them, yet our actions have been less than successful. Too often, physical changes made to a river conflict with natural processes, resulting in - rather than alleviating - damage. Applying available knowledge on how rivers form and act could prevent such problems. In this timely book, Luna Leopold seeks to organize such knowledge. Widely regarded as the most creative scholar in the field of river morphology, Leopold presents a coherent description of the river, its shape, size, organization, and action, along with a consistent theory that explains much of the observed character of channels. The laws of physics that govern rivers allow for variations, many of them dictated by random chance. Thus, a river's adaptation, as Leopold describes it, tends toward the most probable form, the one with the least variance among hydraulic parameters. We see how this probabilistic tendency plays out as Leopold views the river as a whole from headwater to mouth, in the drainage net, in the behavior of meanders, and in aspects of sediment transport. Grounded in hydraulics, geomorphology, and surveying, as well as in extensive fieldwork on rivers in the eastern and Rocky Mountain states, Leopold's view of a river is at once technical and personal, providing both a firm foundation for understanding the behavior of rivers - including instructions for getting started in backyard hydrology - and a wealth of firsthand observations by a thoughtful and experienced scientist. It will be of immediate interest and great use as we seek to develop, preserve, and appreciate our most fluid natural resource
