  • Subsurface Hydrological Responses to Land Cover and Land Use Changes

    Vegetation plays an important role in partitioning solar energy and water into the geosphere and the atmosphere. When changes occur in areas related to agriculture, urbanization and mining, the resulting changes in land cover and land use often lead to disturbances in both the atmosphere and the subsurface environment. This edited volume ...

  • Proceedings of the International Conference on Hydrology and Water Resources, New Delhi, India, December 1993

    The four volumes in this set cover major aspects of hydrology and water resources, including surface water hydrology, subsurface water hydrology, water quality hydrology, and water resources planning management. Some of the articles and state-of-the-art papers have been written by leading experts from around the globe. The books reflect the ...

  • Understanding Water in a Dry Environment: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 23

    In order to provide water security in the 21st century there is universal agreement that a continuation of current policies and extrapolation of trends is not an option. Also clear is that from both water supply and development perspectives, the world's arid and semi-arid regions are those currently and potentially experiencing the highest water ...

  • Runoff, Infiltration and Subsurface Flow of Water in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

    This book attempts to describe runoff, infiltration and subsurface flow of water by adopting a holistic approach rather than restricting itself to a particular section of the hydrological cycle. It includes reports on recent studies which have led to a better understanding of a variety of problems prevailing in semi-arid and arid zones. ...

  • The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook

    Providing a synthesis of basic and applied research, The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook takes an encyclopedic look at how to study and manage ecosystems connected by surface and subsurface water movements. The book examines the South Florida hydroscape, a series of ecosystems linked by ...

  • 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. ...

  • Water Footprint and Virtual Water Trade in Spain

    The evaluation of the water footprint and virtual water trade has become a promising means to evaluate the sustainability of a country’s water resources. This book is based on the research and results of a thorough study carried out for Spain, which serves as a leading case for a semi-arid country. The objective of this study was to assess and ...

  • Geological Fluid Dynamics: Sub-surface Flow and Reactions

    This book is the long-awaited successor to Owen Phillips’s classic textbook, Flow and Reactions in Permeable Rocks, published in 1991. In the intervening 18 years between the two, significant advances have been made to our understanding of subterranean flow, especially through the vast amount of research into underground storage of nuclear waste ...

  • Water Resources Management

    The world's water resources are being tapped at an ever increasing rate, to the extent that sustainability and water quality are being compromised. This book provides the technology for managing water resources to reduce risks. Besides controlling floods, overcoming droughts and reducing pollution, the reader will learn to plan and maintain ...

  • Remote sensing and water resources.Télédétection et ressources en eau (En/Fr)

    Series: FAO Water ReportsThis publication presents the results of an international workshop which was organized in Montpellier, France, in December 1995. The purpose of the workshop was to review the state of the art in the use of remote sensing for water resources assessment and management with special reference to operational techniques. ...

  • Pond Conservation in Europe

    Ponds are an exceptional freshwater resource around the world and represent thirty percent of the global surface area of standing water. Furthermore, the millions of ponds which exist exhibit a particularly high biodiversity and have a high potential for ecosystem functions and services. Despite these impressive features, ponds face many threats ...
