  • Guidelines in Lake Management, Vol.1: Principles of Lake Management

    This guidebook is the first in the series Guidelines of Lake Management which has been produced as an attempt to explain the concept of Environmentally Sound Management and Development of Lakes. Our Lives depends on both natural lakes and artificial reservoirs because they provide drinking water for millions, water for agricultural and industrial ...

  • Lake Victoria

    The book constitutes a pioneering and unique work on Lake Victoria. It is the world’s second largest fresh-water lake and has existed for over 35,000 years, supporting the livelihood of more than 30 million people. Surprisingly, there has been no comprehensive book that addresses its problems and potentials. Ecology, environmental pollution, ...

  • The Ecological Bases for Lake and Reservoir Management

    The Ecological Bases for Lake and Reservoir Management provides a state-of-the-art review of the range of ecologically-based techniques necessary for the holistic management of lakes and their catchments. Most of the methods, case studies and national policies reviewed are directed towards management of the largest problem - eutrophication - ...

  • Saline Lakes

    Inland saline waters are threatened worldwide by diversion and pollution of their inflows, introductions of exotic species and economic development of these ecologically valuable habitats. Since 1979 a series of international symposia on inland saline waters has served to strengthen and expand the scope of limnological research on inland saline ...

  • Lake Champlain

    The primary purpose of this proceedings is to look at a common body of water shared by Canada and the US and to summarize knowledge about the dynamics of this system with a primary focus of land use, water management, and bridging the gap between researchers and the public. From the preface: Lake Champlain spans two states, Vermont and New York, ...

  • Restoration and Management of Lakes and Reservoirs, Third Edition

    It has been more than ten years since the last edition of the bestselling Restoration and Management of Lakes and Reservoirs. In that time, lake and reservoir management and restoration technologies have evolved and an enhanced version of this standard resource is long overdue. Completely revised and updated, the third edition continues the ...

  • Management of Lakes and Reservoirs during Global Climate Change

    If present trends continue, most climatologists agree that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will have doubled by 2050. This increase in CO2 will have a major effect on the global climate and substantially alter the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of lakes throughout the world. A number of recent studies ...

  • European Large Lakes

    Large lakes are important because of their size and ecological distinctiveness as well as their economic and cultural value. Optimal management of them requires a proper understanding of anthropogenic impacts both on the lake ecosystems as such and on the services they provide for society. The specific structural and functional properties of large ...

  • Ecology of Shallow Lakes

    Ecology of Shallow Lakes brings together current understanding of the mechanisms that drive the diametrically opposite states of water clarity, shown by the cover paintings, found in many shallow lakes and ponds. It gives an outline of the knowledge gained from field observations, experimental work, and restoration studies, linked by a solid ...

  • Ecology of Shallow Lakes

    This book presents a theoretical framework for understanding the dynamics of shallow lake communities as it has evolved over the past years from a combination of empirical studies, experimental work and model analysis. Although, as in most theoretical work, mathematical formulations play a role, the models that are used remain simple and ...

  • Shallow Lakes `98

    This volume combines articles on shallow lakes from leading European scientists in limnology. It covers aspects of the dynamics of macrophytes, phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthos, nutrient loading, littoral-pelagic interactions, and sediment-water interactions, as well as lake management. The object was not to separate theory (e.g. ...

  • Shallow Lakes ´95

    Shallow lakes differ from deep ones in many aspects of nutrient dynamics, biotic structure and interactions of various trophic levels. Though very common in European lowlands, shallow lakes attract inadequate attention from research teams. This book aims at filling gaps in our knowledge of the processes which take place in non-stratified ...

  • Technology needs for lake management in Indonesia case studies: Lakes Rawa Danau and Rawa Pening, Java

    This report deals with the technological requirements to achieve the ecological sustainability of two lakes in Java, Indonesia. Lake Rawa Danau is an area under protection, it lies in a caldera that was drained by removing the rim to increase the amount of land for rice production in 1825.However, due to the existing pressures for water from ...

  • Lake Verevi, Estonia - A Highly Stratified Hypertrophic Lake
