  • Rainwater Tank Systems for Urban Water Supply

    Rainwater tank systems have been widely adopted across the world to provide a safe local source of water in underdeveloped rural areas, a substitution for mains water for non potable end uses in water stressed urban areas, as well as providing flooding control in monsoonal climates such as Korea, or combined sewer systems such as Germany. The ...

  • Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management

    The overall objective of Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management is to present the environmental and anthropogenic factors associated with the process of eutrophication and algal blooms in the Rio Verde reservoir and propose lake use and management technologies in order to minimize the problem. Eutrophication process in Rio Verde reservoir ...

  • Ecological Climatology: Concepts and Applications, 2nd Edition

    This book reviews basic meteorological, hydrological and ecological concepts to examine the physical, chemical and biological processes by which terrestrial ecosystems affect and are affected by climate. The textbook is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying ecology, environmental science, atmospheric science and ...

  • Coastal Watershed Management

    Coastal watersheds differ from others by their unique features, including proximity to the ocean, weather and rainfall patterns, subsurface features, and land covers. Land use changes and competing needs for valuable water and land resources are especially more distinctive to such watersheds.This book covers recent research relevant to coastal ...

  • Ecology of a Glacial Flood Plain

    The book comprehensively evaluates the characteristics and floodplain evolution of Val Roseg on an annual basis for several years. Channel typology, groundwater-surface water hydrology, thermal and chemical regimes are examined. Biotic dynamics of vegetation, aquatic flora, fungi, and surface and interstitial fauna are evaluated in detail. ...

  • The Bear Brook Watershed in Maine

    The Bear Brook Watershed in Maine (BBWM) is a long-term, whole-watershed study examining the effects of experimentally elevated N and S deposition on a treated watershed, in comparison to the adjacent reference watershed. The study is in a northern New England, USA, forested ecosystem, and focuses on soil and stream hydrological and ...

  • The Water Environment of Cities

    Urbanization of the Earth’s population will have increased the Earth’s urban population from less than one billion in 1950 to five billion by 2030. Managing water for this burgeoning urban population is one of the critical needs for humanity. This book uses a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to examine the urban water environment. Water has ...

  • Colloidal Transport in Porous Media

    Colloids are known to be the often neglected phase for the transport of pollutants in aquatic ecosystems. The book covers the basics of abiotic colloid characterization, of biocolloids and biofilms, the resulting transport phenomena and their engineering aspects. The subject is presented from an international group of leading specialists devoted ...

  • 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. ...

  • Water Resources Quality

    Water is vital for the life and health of people and ecosystems, and is a basic condition for the development of countries. Water resources, and the related ecosystems which are sustained by water, are under threat from pollution, unsustainable use, land-use changes, climate changes and many other forces. This book incorporates basic and advanced ...

  • Soils of Tropical Forest Ecosystems

    An understanding of the characteristics and the ecology of soils, particularly those of forest ecosystems in the humid tropics, is central to the development of sustainable forest management systems.
