Modelling Groundwater Systems: Understanding and Improving Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Girma Yimer Ebrahim

May 14, 2014

Groundwater is increasingly subjected to excessive over-exploitation and contamination in many parts of the world. It faces the challenge of balancing its multiple functions in a sustainable manner. This thesis explores several specific problems related to contaminant migration, groundwater-surface...

The Effect of Riparian Zones on Nitrate Removal by Denitrification at the River Basin Scale: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

The Effect of Riparian Zones on Nitrate Removal by Denitrification at the River Basin Scale: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Linh Hoang

May 14, 2014

At the interface between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the riparian zone plays an important role in nitrogen removal, despite the minor proportion of the land area that it covers. Very limited studies are carried out in modelling these effects at the river basin scales. The Soil and Water...
