    From the contents: Concepts and Approaches to Long Term and Large Scale Modelling of Fluvial Systems.- A LUCIFS Strategy.- Linking Short and Long Term Soil-Erosion Modelling.- Modelling Sediment Fluxes at Large Spatial and Temporal Scales.- Modelling the Geomorphic Response to Land Use Changes.- Modelling Water and Tillage Erosion Using Spatially ...

  • Ecosystem Modeling as a Management Tool for the Black Sea

    The Black Sea ecosystem is a unique marine environment. Its isolation from the ocean and large catchment basin, covering industrial and rural parts of the European and Asian continents, render the Black Sea ecosystem extremely vulnerable to the imposed environmental burdens Complex scientific problems related to the recent evolution of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Soil and Water Contamination

    Soil and Water Contamination, 2nd Edition is the first textbook that treats soil and water pollution issues from a geographical/spatial perspective at point, local, regional, and catchment scales. It links up very well to recent environmental policy and legislation in the field of soil and water pollution, e.g. European Water Framework Directive. ...

  • Integrated Water Resource Management in Brazil

      The complex interactions between water resources, land-use change and water technologies are a major issue in many emerging countries of Southern America. Usable water resources are affected by natural conditions, such as, strong seasonal contrasts and high climatic variability, and rapid changes of land use and land cover that is caused by the ...

  • Biogeochemical Investigations of Terrestrial, Freshwater, and Wetland Ecosystems Across the Globe

    This volume contains reviewed papers from BIOGEOMON, The Fourth International Symposium on Ecosystem Behavior, held at the University of Reading in August 2002, and attended by over 260 participants from 25 countries. The papers in this volume focus on themes that have always been strong at BIOGEOMON, such as: - catchment monitoring and ...

  • Animal Waste, Water Quality and Human Health

    Domestic animals contaminate recreational waters and drinking-water sources with excreta and pathogens; but this threat to public health is inadequately understood and is insufficiently addressed in regulations. More than 85% of the world’s faecal wastes is from domestic animals such as poultry, cattle, sheep and pigs. These animals harbor ...

  • Flood Risk Management: Hazards, Vulnerability and Mitigation Measures

    Floods are of increasing public concern world-wide due to increasing damages and unacceptably high numbers of injuries. Previous approaches of flood protection led to limited success especially during recent extreme events. Therefore, an integrated flood risk management is required which takes into consideration both the hydrometeorogical and the ...

  • Hydroinformatics Tools for Planning, Design, Operation and Rehabilitation of Sewer Systems

    Hydroinformatics systems are systems that combine computational hydraulic modelling with information systems (including knowledge-based systems). They are gaining rapid acceptance in the areas of environmental planning, design and management. The present book focuses exclusively on sewage systems, starting with their planning and then going ...

  • Soil Conservation Service Curve Number (SCS-CN) Methodology

    Recent contributions have significantly enhanced the understanding of the SCS-CN method and consequently its application potential. In the simplest form, the fundamental proportionality concept of the method relates the two orthogonal hydrological processes of surface water and ground water and the other hypothesis relates to the atmospheric ...

  • Vegetation, Water, Humans and the Climate

    This book presents a state-of-the-art scientific overview of the influence of terrestrial vegetation and soils within the Earth system. It deals especially with interactions between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere via the hydrological cycle and their interlinkage with anthropogenic activities. Measurements gathered in integrated field ...

  • Flood Risk and Social Justice

    Flood Risk and Social Justice is a response to the rising significance of floods and flood-related disasters worldwide, as an initiative to promote a socially just approach to the problems of flood risk. It integrates the human-social and the technological components to provide a holistic view. This book treats flooding as a multi-dimensional ...

  • 25 Years of Advances in Water Resources

    This volume assembles a broad range of comprehensive, scholarly works in the field of water resources that accomplish multiple objectives: (1) to provide a critical review of the state of knowledge; (2) to provide introductions to, or comparisons among, classes of methods; (3) to unify knowledge in related areas; and (4) to point the way to future ...

  • Chemistry for the Protection of the Environment 3

  • Bioassessment of Freshwater Ecosystems

    Aquatic ecosystem assessment is a rapidly developing field, and one of the newer approaches to assessing the condition of rivers and lakes is the Reference Condition Approach. This is a significant advancement in biomonitoring because it solves the problem of trying to locate nearby control or reference sites when studying an ecosystem that may be ...
