  • An Integrated Approach for the Improvement of Flood Control and Drainage Schemes in the Coastal Belt of Bangladesh

    This study describes the development of water management in Bangladesh, including flood control and drainage schemes. The present landuse situation and hydrological conditions are presented and the coastal lowland development of Southeast Asia is reviewed.  A performance analysis of different flood control and drainage systems are discussed, ...

  • Governance and Management for Sustainable Water Systems

    Increasing global pressure on water resources requires many actions from governments and individuals to achieve sustainable levels of water use.   These involve management tasks such as project development and utility operation, but the degree of interdependence among the many participants in water management is so great that additional regulatory ...

  • Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

    The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A ...

  • Self-Organized Criticality in Earth Systems

    Self-organized criticality (SOC) has become a magic word in various scientific disciplines; it provides a framework for understanding complexity and scale invariance in systems showing irregular fluctuations. In the first 10 years after Per Bak and his co-workers presented their seminal idea, more than 2000 papers on this topic appeared. ...

  • Model Predictive Control on Open Water Systems

    In the research Model Predictive Control on Open Water Systems, the relatively new control methodology Model Predictive Control is configured for application of water quantity control on open water systems, especially on irrigation canals and large drainage systems. The methodology applies an internal model of the open water system, by which ...

  • 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 ...

  • Dissolved Organic Matter in Lacustrine Ecosystems: Energy Source and System Regulator

    Concentrations of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in lakes are often an order of magnitude greater than concentrations of particulate organic matter; nevertheless, the biogeochemical analysis of DOM is described in only a few textbooks on limnology (most thoroughly by Wetzel). The orgins of dissolved organic substances are largely ...

  • Modernizing irrigation management - the MASSCOTE approach. Mapping System and Services for Canal Operation Techniques (+ 2 CD-ROMs) (English)

    Series: FAO Irrigation and Drainage PapersThis publication describes the MASSCOTE methodology, illustrated by several applications in Asia. MASSCOTE is a comprehensive methodology for analysing the modernization of canal operation. The aim is to enable experts to work together with users in determining improved processes for cost-effective ...

  • Urban Pluvial and Coincidental Flooding

    Pluvial flooding is defined as flooding that results from rainfall-generated overland flow, before the runoff enters any watercourse or sewer.  It is usually associated with high intensity rainfall events (typically >30mm/h) but can also occur with lower intensity rainfall or melting snow where the ground is saturated, frozen, developed or ...

  • Patagonian Shelf - GIWA Regional Assessment 38

    GIWA region 38, Patagonian Shelf, comprises the La Plata River Basin, the South Atlantic Drainage System, and the Patagonian Shelf Large Marine ...

  • Flood Risk: The Holistic Perspective

    According to the International Disaster Database (EM-DAT), over the last seventy years, floods have shown the fastest rate of increase relative to any other type of disasters. Devastation due to these events occurs almost daily. Even though our technological capabilities for dealing with floods have advanced rapidly over the same period, and while ...

  • Evolution of Sanitation and Wastewater Technologies through the Centuries

      Most of the technological developments relevant to water supply and wastewater date back to more than to five thousand years ago. These developments were driven by the necessity to make efficient use of natural resources, to make civilizations more resistant to destructive natural elements, and to improve the standards of life, both at public ...
