  • 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 ...

  • Comparative Reservoir Limnology and Water Quality Management

    The volume starts with comparative reservoir limnology and deals with problems relating to tropical, semi-arid and temperate reservoirs. The second part concerns mathematical models of reservoirs, including new techniques for investigating their limnology. These cover physical, chemical and biological phenomena, remote sensing and the use of ...

  • Water for Subsurface Injection

    Covers four areas that must be considered in order to develop and maintain a sound, trouble-free water injection system:FiltrationCorrosion QualityReservoir ConsiderationsTreatment ...

  • Water and Drainage Law

    The author provides an up-to-date survey of water and drainage law in England and Wales, covering everything from sewerage to flood defenses and freshwater fisheries. This volume discusses water management and resource issues, reservoirs and dams, water supply, and the quality of drinking water. It examines applicable statutes in their common-law ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • California Water Code, 2010 ed. (California Desktop Codes)

    This title provides the complete text of the California Water Code, as well as editorial notes for added guidance in the application of particular ...

  • Environmental Geomechanics

    Environmental Geomechanics covers a broad class of problems where deforming geomaterials are involved, usually coupled with fluid flow and transport of some substance. Transport of contaminants and other substances may occur in the fluids, e.g. water, water vapour and air, filling the pores of geomaterials as happens in waste disposal problems or ...

  • Rock Damage and Fluid Transport, Part I

    Mechanical properties and fluid transport in rocks are intimately linked as deformation of a solid rock matrix immediately affects the pore space and permeability. This may result in transient or permanent changes of pore pressures and effective pressures causing rock strength to vary in space and time. Fluid circulation and deformation processes ...

  • Man and River Systems

    The volume focuses on the ecological functioning of rivers, which has received less attention than functioning of lakes and reservoirs. The selected papers cover a large range of topics relating to aquatic communities, eutrophication, nutrient dynamics and organic pollution, erosion and sediment transport, and fate of micropollutants at the ...

  • Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks

    Hydrogeology is a topical and growing subject as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. More than half of the surface area of continents is covered with hard rocks of low permiability.This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding the hydrogeological characteristics of rocks, as well as ...

  • Induced Earthquakes

    This book on Induced Earthquakes is the first of its kind dealing with all kinds of induced phenomena such as water-reservoirs, petroleum and gas extraction, volcanic eruptions, underground mining, underground nuclear explosions, and astronomical tidal stress. Other publications in the field of induced seismicity deal with individual induced ...

  • Flood Risk

    Flood Risk: Planning, Design and Management of Flood Defence Infrastructure is the definitive practical handbook on design and maintenance of flood defences, providing a coherent and focused reference for best practice. This book is the first port of call for practising engineers working in the areas of flood risk management and drainage and ...

  • Durability of Building and Construction Sealants and Adhesives

    Twenty-eight peer-reviewed papers, reflecting the latest information on sealant and adhesive durability, cover: Field Experience with Sealed Joints and Adhesive Fixations—discusses a novel secondary drainage system for architectural panel walls, consisting of tubes and joint protection collection reservoirs with one-way valves; the ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants

    Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) continue to be the subject of concern amongst the public, as well as the scientific and policy-making communities. These concerns are exemplified by the international efforts co-ordinated by the United Nations' Environment Programme and the +Economic Commission for Europe. Whilst the ultimate origin of ...
