  • The Impacts of Payments for Watershed Services in Ecuador: Emerging lessons from Pimampiro and Cuenca; Markets for Environmental Services No.4.

    Payments for environmental services (PES) is a topic of increasing interest in Ecuador, particularly as a way to leverage funding for environmental protection. Payments systems are emerging, however, since Ecuador’s experience of PES is recent, the implications for national and local well being are not yet clear. Thus, the objective of this study ...

  • Nitrogen Cycling in the North Atlantic Ocean and Its Watersheds

    Human activity has dramatically altered the global nitrogen cycle in recent decades. These changes are not evenly distributed around the world; rather, they are greatest in regions of significant industrial and agricultural activity, as the synthesis and use of inorganic fertilizers, cultivation of legumes, burning of fossil fuels, and the ...

  • Modeling Hydrologic Change: Statistical Methods

    Modeling hydrologic changes and predicting their impact on watersheds is a dominant concern for hydrologists and other water resource professionals, civil and environmental engineers, and urban and regional planners. As such changes continue, it becomes more essential to have the most up-to-date tools with which to perform the proper analyses and ...

  • Land Stewardship Through Watershed Management

    This volume highlights the need for enhancing the effectiveness of land stewardship and management of the world's natural resources to meet the need of the growing global population for conservation, sustainable development, and the use of land, water, and other natural resources. Ecosystem-based, multiple-use land stewardship is necessary ...

  • Wetland and Water Resource Modeling and Assessment: A Watershed Perspective

    As a wetland of international importance located in China ,the Poyang Lake Basin´s incredible topographical and biological diversity has provided a congregating point for scientists from around the world to engage in cross-disciplinary research. In particular, the International Conference on Poyang Lake Complex Environment System was instrumental ...

  • Shed Loads - paying to protect watersheds

    Payments for watershed services compensate land users and owners for the services that they can provide. New York City is assisting farmers to change their landuse and by doing so has avoided the cost of constructing a massive water purification plant. Implementing similar changes in developing countries is extremely challenging. 'Shed Loads - ...

  • Boreal Shield Watersheds: Lake Trout Ecosystems in a Changing Environment

    Boreal Shield Watersheds: Lake Trout Ecosystems in a Changing Environment brings together the work of a renowned international group of scientists who specialize in aquatic science and environmental management. They explore the functioning of Boreal Shield ecosystems, focusing on the lake trout, the classic coldwater species of northern glaciated ...

  • Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution: Watershed Management and Hydrology

    If you work in the water quality management field, you know the challenges of monitoring and controlling pollutants in our water supply. The increasing problem of agricultural nonpoint source pollution requires complex solutions. Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution: Watershed Management and Hydrology covers the latest techniques and methods of ...

  • Environmental Role of Wetlands in Headwaters

    Internationally, the wetlands of headwater and upland regions provide many valuable environmental services. They influence flood flows, sediment loads and aquifer recharge; biochemical water qualities and biodiversity. They affect the livelihoods of many communities providing water, peat, timber, grazing, crops and, locally, aesthetic, cultural, ...

  • Regionalization of Watersheds

    Design of water control structures, reservoir management, economic evaluation of flood protection projects, land use planning and management, flood insurance assessment, and other projects rely on knowledge of magnitude and frequency of floods. Often, estimation of floods is not easy because of lack of flood records at the target sites. Regional ...

  • Coastal Watershed Management

    Coastal watersheds differ from others by their unique features, including proximity to the ocean, weather and rainfall patterns, subsurface features, and land covers. Land use changes and competing needs for valuable water and land resources are especially more distinctive to such watersheds.This book covers recent research relevant to coastal ...
