  • Landscape limnology

    Landscape limnology is the spatially-explicit study of lakes, streams, and wetlands as they interact with the freshwater, terrestrial, and human landscapes to determine the effects of pattern on ecosystem processes across temporal and spatial scales. The terrestrial component represents spatial hierarchies of landscape features that influence what materials, whether ...

  • Visualisation of the characteristics of mining subsidence with the consideration of topography: a case study in China

    The existing three-dimensional visualisation of mining subsidence cannot fully convey the original landscape in the mining area. By using GIS and coupling the predicted result of subsidence in different mining stages with the original elevation data, a dynamic visualisation of mining process is approached, which could reflect geomorphologic features clearly. Furthermore, it visually shows the ...

  • Risk-based zoning for urbanizing floodplains

    Urban floodplain development brings economic benefits and enhanced flood risks. Rapidly growing cities must often balance the economic benefits and increased risks of floodplain settlement. Planning can provide multiple flood mitigation and environmental benefits by combining traditional structural measures such as levees, increasingly popular landscape and design features (green ...

  • Salinity solutions: from ‘waste disposal’ to ‘resource recovery’

    Saline impaired water is a ubiquitous feature of the Australian landscape and the need for innovative technologies to deal with this issue is now a priority. The ‘waste disposal’ paradigm needs to change to ‘resource recovery’ especially with environmental and legislative requirements which limit the scope, cost efficiency and sustainability of conventional saline water ...

  • Collecting, transporting and storing water in karst settings of southern Italy: some lessons learned from ancient hydraulic systems

    The karst landscapes of southern Italy, even though they show a lack or scarce presence of water at the surface, host a variety of ancient hydraulic works realized to collect and store water resources, to the advantage of the local settlements and for agricultural purposes as well. Ancient populations were forced to gain a deep knowledge of the territory in order to exploit the few available ...

  • Predictors of mercury spatial patterns in San Francisco Bay forage fish

    Pollution reduction efforts should be targeted towards those sources that result in the highest bioaccumulation. For mercury (Hg) in estuaries and other complex water bodies, carefully designed biosentinel monitoring programs can help identify predictors of bioaccumulation and inform management priorities for source reduction. We employed a probabilistic forage fish Hg survey with hypothesis ...

  • Exploring the need for rainwater tank maintenance: survey, review and simulations

    Rainwater tanks are a common feature of the urban landscape in Australia and globally. In Brisbane, Australia, provision of alternative water in new homes is mandatory and to meet this requirement rainwater tanks are considered an important option. The water savings of rainwater tanks can help defer investments in supply infrastructures. An emerging concern is that there is currently no ...

  • Recycling & Waste World - Recycling: A process as circular as the earth?

    Recycling: A process as circular as the earth? Closed loop recycling and the circular economy are buzzwords in today's waste management sector, however, what about the way minerals have been continuously recycled over the centuries? Dr Tim Johnson looks at the role thermal treatment plays in helping to recycle essential minerals. Volcanoes are one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. ...

  • Green infrastructure and territorial cohesion

    The point of departure for this analysis is to support the European process towards territorial cohesion and green infrastructure development, in particular the development of a strategy for green infrastructure. This report explores the concept of green infrastructure, with illustrative examples of green infrastructure initiatives on the ground and further analyses of the integration of green ...

  • Spatial distribution and sources of dissolved trace metals in surface water of the Wei River, China

    For this study, 34 water samples were collected along the Wei River and its tributaries. Multivariate statistical analyses were employed to interpret the environmental data and to identify the natural and anthropogenic trace metal inputs to the surface waters of the river. Our results revealed that Zn, Se, B, Ba, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ni and V were all detected in the Wei River. Compared to drinking water ...

  • Assessment of GeoEye-1 stereo-pair-generated DEM in flood mapping of an ungauged basin

    A very high resolution (VHR) digital elevation model (DEM) is produced from a GeoEye-1 0.5-m-resolution satellite stereo pair and is used for floodplain management and mapping applications such as watershed delineation and river cross-section extraction. For this purpose, a 2 m × 2 m resolution terrain surface is produced from the stereo pair by using the Leica Photogrammetry Suite (LPS) ...
