  • Coastal Lagoons in Europe: Integrated Water Resource Strategies

    Lagoons represent nearly 13% of the shoreline globally and around 5% in Europe. Coastal lagoons are shallow water bodies separated from the ocean by a barrier (e.g., narrow spit), connected at least intermittently to the ocean by one or more restricted inlets, and usually geographically oriented parallel to the shore-line. Coastal lagoons are ...

  • Data Requirements for Integrated Urban Water Management

    Drawing on UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme project on this topic, Data Requirements for Integrated Urban Water Managements explores how to improve integrated urban water management, It provides guidance on the collection, validation, storage, assessment and utilization of the relevant data. The first part of this volume describes ...

  • Data Requirements for Integrated Urban Water Management

    Integrated urban water management relies on data allowing us to analyse, understand and predict the behaviour of the individual water cycle components and their interactions. The concomitant monitoring of the complex of urban water system elements makes it possible to grasp the entirety of relations among the various components of the urban water ...

  • Population-Level Ecological Risk Assessment

    Most ecological risk assessments consider the risk to individual organisms or organism-level attributes. From a management perspective, however, risks to population-level attributes and processes are often more relevant. Despite many published calls for population risk assessment and the abundance of available scientific research and technical ...
