Fate and Transport of Nutrients in Groundwater and Surface Water in an Urban Slum Catchment, Kampala, Uganda: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Fate and Transport of Nutrients in Groundwater and Surface Water in an Urban Slum Catchment, Kampala, Uganda: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Philip Mayanja Nyenje

November 01, 2014

Urban informal settlements or slums are growing rapidly in cities in sub-Saharan Africa. Most often, a sewer system is not present and the commonly-used low-cost onsite wastewater handling practices, typically pit latrines, are frequently unplanned, uncontrolled and inefficient. Consequently, most...

Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

John M. Sharp

June 05, 2014

Fractured rocks extend over much of the world, cropping out in shields, massifs, and the cores of major mountain ranges. They also form the basement below younger sedimentary rocks; at depth; they represent a continuous environment of extended and deep regional groundwater flow. Understanding of...

Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Valentine Uwamariya

In general, groundwater is a preferred source of drinking water because of its convenient availability and its constant and good quality. However this source is vulnerable to contamination by several substances. Acceptable quality limits relative to micropollutant contents in drinking water are...

Advances in River Sediment Research

Advances in River Sediment Research

Shoji Fukuoka, Hajime Nakagawa, Tetsuya Sumi, Hao Zhang

August 15, 2013

Sediments, which constitute the surface of the Earth, start their journey to rivers with the energy obtained from rainfalls, fl oods and other natural processes. Due to transport of sediments, rivers develop with various appearances and functions, and play a crucial role in the activities of human...

Groundwater and Ecosystems

Groundwater and Ecosystems

Luis Ribeiro, Tibor Y. Stigter, Antonio Chambel, M. Teresa Condesso de Melo, Jose Paulo Monteiro, Albino Medeiros

June 13, 2013

Groundwater resources are facing increasing pressure from consuming and contaminating activities. There is a growing awareness that the quantitative and qualitative preservation of groundwater resources is a global need, not only to safeguard their future use for public supply and irrigation, but...

Groundwater around the World: A Geographic Synopsis

Groundwater around the World: A Geographic Synopsis

Jean Margat, Jac van der Gun

March 19, 2013

This book presents a unique and up-to-date summary of what is known about groundwater on our planet, from a global perspective and in terms of area-specific factual information. Unlike most textbooks on groundwater, it does not deal with theoretical principles, but rather with the overall picture...

History of Hydrogeology

History of Hydrogeology

Nicholas Howden, John Mather

November 29, 2012

Lessons can be learnt from the past; from time to time it is useful for practitioners to look back over the historical developments of their science. Hydrogeology has developed from humble beginnings into the broad church of investigatory procedures which collectively form the modern-day...

River Flow 2012

River Flow 2012

Rafael Murillo Muñoz

October 05, 2012

Rivers are complex entities. In addition to being valuable wildlife habitats, they support human activities by providing water for human usage, renewable energy and convenient transportation. Rivers may also pose threats to riverine communities, in the form of floods and other natural or...

Hydrogeology: Objectives, Methods, Applications

Hydrogeology: Objectives, Methods, Applications

Éric Gilli, Christian Mangan, Jacques Mudry

September 14, 2012

Hydrogeology, the science of groundwater, requires a multidisciplinary approach involving many other sciences: surface hydrology, climatology, geology, geography, physics, chemistry, biology, and more. This book takes a broad view, considers water as a single entity, and presents many...

Groundwater Quality Sustainability

Groundwater Quality Sustainability

Piotr Maloszewski, Stanisław Witczak, Grzegorz Malina

August 06, 2012

Sustainable groundwater development requires knowledge of the appropriate recharge and transport-processes. This is a prerequisite to understanding: (i) groundwater resources and their availability, and (ii) the dependence between groundwater and the environment. Conceptual understanding of...

Hydrogeological Conceptual Site Models: Data Analysis and Visualization

Hydrogeological Conceptual Site Models: Data Analysis and Visualization

Neven Kresic, Alex Mikszewski

July 30, 2012

A reference for students, researchers, and environmental professionals, Hydrogeological Conceptual Site Models: Data Analysis and Visualization explains how to develop effective conceptual site models, perform advanced spatial data analysis, and generate informative graphics for applications in...

Mathematical and Numerical Modeling in Porous Media: Applications in Geosciences

Mathematical and Numerical Modeling in Porous Media: Applications in Geosciences

Martin A. Diaz Viera, Pratap Sahay, Manuel Coronado, Arturo Ortiz Tapia

July 24, 2012

Porous media are broadly found in nature and their study is of high relevance in our present lives. In geosciences porous media research is fundamental in applications to aquifers, mineral mines, contaminant transport, soil remediation, waste storage, oil recovery and geothermal energy deposits....
