Water budget analysis of small forested boreal watersheds: comparison of Sphagnum bog, patterned fen and lake dominated downstream areas in the La Grande River region, Québec

by IWA Publishing  (Jan. 29, 2015)

A water budget analysis (precipitation (P), surface runoff (Q), evapotranspiration (ET) and storage variations (ΔS)) was completed over a 3-year span for two Sphagnum bogs, three patterned fens and two shallow lakes all located in the La Grande River watershed in central Québec. The high variability of P from ...

Soy entering valuable wetlands of the Paraná Delta, Argentina

by Wetlands International  (Jan. 27, 2015)

Due to the enormous emphasis on soybean cultivation within Argentina, activities such as cattle raising but also the cultivation of soybeans are increasingly pushed to more marginal and vulnerable areas, where the cost of land is lower. The Paraná Delta, one of the most unique and important wetlands regions in the world, is one of these ...

Case-study - Generating climate relevant information for multiple impacted sectors

by Climate-KIC  (Jan. 23, 2015)

A lack of useful regional climate and climate impact information could threaten the sustainability and competitiveness of a number of key sectors. Thus, Climate Impact Expert System (CIES) develops an online web portal to make that information readily available. In-depth climate and climate impact consulting services based on the data and the ...

Custom functionality and integrative approaches for hydrological modelling tools for water resources planning and management

by IWA Publishing  (Jan. 16, 2015)

This paper outlines the application and usefulness of a software platform that enables hydrologists to develop custom functionality in a new hydrological modelling tool, eWater Source, designed for water resources planning and management. The flexible architecture of the software allows incorporation of third-party components as plug-ins to add ...

Effects of model segmentation approach on the performance and parameters of the Hydrological Simulation Program – Fortran (HSPF) models

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 22, 2014)

Although models are one of the most powerful tools for watershed management, their effectiveness is limited by prediction uncertainties resulting from not only model input data but also spatial discretization. In this paper, Hydrological Simulation Program – Fortran (HSPF) models were constructed for the Linyi watershed according to three ...

Modelling the hydrological impacts of rural land use change

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 22, 2014)

The potential role of rural land use in mitigating flood risk and protecting water supplies continues to be of great interest to regulators and planners. The ability of hydrologists to quantify the impact of rural land use change on the water cycle is however limited and we are not able to provide consistently reliable evidence to support ...

Groundwater, flooding and hydrological functioning in the Findhorn floodplain, Scotland

by IWA Publishing  (Dec. 22, 2014)

A large floodplain of the River Findhorn, northeast Scotland, was investigated using hydrogeological and hydrochemical methods (including residence time indicators) to characterise groundwater/surface-water coupling and groundwater flooding. The study demonstrated widespread stratification within the floodplain: shallow (<8 mbgl) deposits ...

A new hydrological balance and water management issues in Zakynthos Island, Greece

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 22, 2014)

The use of groundwater resources in Zakynthos Island in the Ionian Sea at central Mediterranean has become extremely intensive during the last decades, due to the high rate of urbanisation, tourist development and irrigated land expansion and is estimated being 15 hm 3 /year. Different methods are being required when water-related ...

Stochastic modelling of rainfall and runoff phenomenon: a time series approach review

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 22, 2014)

Rainfall-runoff simulation and forecasting is essential for disaster management, planning, designing and operation of water resource projects. This paper reviews the till date development and current status of time series analysis-based modelling and simulation attempts of rainfall-runoff phenomenon. The discussion starts with the historical ...
