  • Research focus on Australia’s rivers and wetlands

    As a result of reduced water availability and unsustainable demands on our environment, Australia’s rivers, lakes, wetlands and floodplains have suffered severe degradation. There is growing recognition of the need to supply ‘environmental water’ to protect and conserve these important ecosystems. The Ecological Responses to Altered Flow Regimes Cluster, launched today by CSIRO ...

  • Rivers and oceans as clean sources of energy

    The third day of the acqua alta, which will take place from 10 to 12 November at the CCH - Congress Center Hamburg - will be focusing on the topic of hydro energy. Experts from Germany and abroad will be presenting new developments and projects. Not only will the classic types of energy generation from water power be addressed, but also the advanced and climate-friendly use of tides and sea ...

  • Social learning in river basin management

    Water resources management generally follows a model in which problems and their causes are scientifically identified, and technical solutions are devised. However, contrary to the terms of the European Water Framework Directive (2000)1 for river basin management, this process does not take into account the social beliefs, behaviours and attitudes of other interest groups. A recent study ...

  • Flood forecasting system for suir river

    HKV Consultants has won a contract for the implementation of a flood forecasting system for the Suir River. The system will be used to timely erect mobile flood walls in and around the town of Clonmel in the southeast of Ireland. HKV Consultants uses the Delft-FEWS system to implement the flood ...

  • Rivers are carbon processors, not inert pipelines

    Microorganisms in rivers and streams play a crucial role in the global carbon cycle that has not previously been considered. Freshwater ecologist Dr Tom Battin, of the University of Vienna, told a COST ESF Frontiers of Science conference in October that our understanding of how rivers and streams deal with organic carbon has changed radically. Microorganisms such as bacteria and single celled ...

  • Monitoring diffuse pollution in EU river catchment areas

    In recent decades, discharges of pollutants from waste water treatment plants and industry have been successfully identified and in many cases reduced, but assessing inputs of diffuse pollution from land, and the degree of retention of pollutants, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, within surface water systems is harder to achieve. A recent study has compared different methods used to estimate ...

  • A flood study of the Urumea River in The Basque Country

    The Urumea river catchment area which is located in the Basque Country in the northern part of Spain has historically been seriously affected by flooding. The districts most affected by the frequent inundations are the municipalities of San Sebastian, Astigarraga and Hernani. As recently as October 2008 a minor flood was experienced in Hernani. In 2006 and 2004 major flood events with significant ...


  • America`s 10 most endangered rivers

    Diminished by drought, impounded by 11 hydroelectric dams, and the subject of a US Supreme Court water battle between the states of North and South Carolina, the Catawba-Wateree River today was named the most endangered river in the United States. The Catawba River begins its 300 mile run to the Atlantic Ocean high in the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina, and flows through the ...

  • Desert dust cuts Colorado river flow

    Snow melt in the Colorado River basin (USA) is occurring earlier, reducing runoff and the amount of crucial water available downstream. A new study shows this is due to increased dust caused by human activities in the region during the past 150 years. The study, led by a NASA scientist and funded by the agency and the National Science Foundation (NSF), showed peak spring runoff now comes three ...

  • Pharmaceutical pollution levels in European rivers assessed

    Concentrations of three pharmaceuticals (ethinylestradiol, oestradiol and diclofenac), have been mapped in a recent study of European rivers. The researchers predict that levels of ethinylestradiol, a contraceptive and hormone replacement drug, could exceed the WFD’s suggested environmental quality standards in 12% of the total length of Europe’s rivers Widely used pharmaceutical ...

  • US river flows altered by water management

    The amount of water flowing in streams and rivers has been significantly altered in nearly 90% of waters that were assessed in a new nationwide USGS study. Flow alterations are a primary contributor to degraded river ecosystems and loss of native species. Flows are altered by a variety of land- and water-management activities, including reservoirs, diversions, subsurface tile drains, groundwater ...
