Integrated Flood and Drought Mitigation Mesures and Strategies. Case Study: The Mun River Basin, Thailand

Integrated Flood and Drought Mitigation Mesures and Strategies. Case Study: The Mun River Basin, Thailand

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Saowanit Prabnakorn
March 11, 2020

Floods and droughts are climate extremes that account for more than 80% of people affected by natural disasters worldwide. Both catastrophes co-exist in many river basins, for example, the Mun River Basin in Thailand, which is selected as the study area. Approximately 90% of rice cultivation here...

Strategies to Cope with Risks of Uncertain Water Supply in Spate Irrigation Systems

Strategies to Cope with Risks of Uncertain Water Supply in Spate Irrigation Systems

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Eiman Mohamed Fadul Bashir
March 07, 2020

Flood based irrigation in particular spate irrigation relies on variable flood scenarios occurring every year. Management of spate flood for spate irrigation must cope with the variability and uncertainty of water supply. Coping with water supply risks is often the only way to harness the...

Novel Concepts, Systems and Technology for Sludge Management in Emergency and Slum Settings

Novel Concepts, Systems and Technology for Sludge Management in Emergency and Slum Settings

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Peter Matuku Mawioo
March 05, 2020

Management of sludge is one of the most pressing issues in sanitation provision. The situation is especially complex when large quantities of fresh sludge containing various contaminants are generated in onsite sanitation systems in urban slums, emergency settlements and wastewater treatment...

Socio-Hydrological Dynamics in Bangladesh: Understanding the Interaction Between Hydrological and Social Processes Along the Jamuna Floodplain

Socio-Hydrological Dynamics in Bangladesh: Understanding the Interaction Between Hydrological and Social Processes Along the Jamuna Floodplain

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Md Ruknul Ferdous
March 04, 2020

Bangladesh is a large delta, where most people live in the overpopulated floodplains. Flooding is a normal phenomenon, which causes much suffering. How to reduce this suffering through better managing floods is a big societal challenge. To date, societal initiatives to address this challenge mainly...

Advancing Robust Multi-Objective Optimisation Applied to Complex Model-Based Water-Related Problems

Advancing Robust Multi-Objective Optimisation Applied to Complex Model-Based Water-Related Problems

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Oscar Osvaldo Marquez Calvo
March 04, 2020

The exercise of solving engineering problems that require optimisation procedures can be seriously affected by uncertain variables, resulting in potential underperforming solutions. Although this is a well-known problem, important knowledge gaps are still to be addressed. For example, concepts of...

Making Water Security: A Morphological Account of Nile River Development

Making Water Security: A Morphological Account of Nile River Development

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Hermen Smit
February 04, 2020

This book examines Nile water security through the morphology of the river: it uses the always changing form of the river as a theoretical and empirical device to map and understand how infrastructures and discourses dynamically interact with the Nile. By bringing a history of two centuries of dam...

Compliance or Defiance?: Assessing the Implementation of Policy Prescriptions for Commercialization by Water Operators

Compliance or Defiance?: Assessing the Implementation of Policy Prescriptions for Commercialization by Water Operators

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Mireia Tutusaus
January 28, 2020

Whereas the global water community may have reached consensus on the need for water providers to operate on the basis of commercial principles, staff of water utilities are faced with the challenge of implementing these principles in their everyday work. In the everyday domain, these principles...

Assessing Bacterial Growth Potential in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment: Method Development and Applications

Assessing Bacterial Growth Potential in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment: Method Development and Applications

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Almotasembellah Abushaban
January 21, 2020

Seawater desalination is increasingly being used as a means to augment freshwater supplies in regions with high water stress, and reverse osmosis is increasingly the technology of choice because of the low energy consumption. However, seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) systems suffer from various...

Effects of Wetland Conversion to Farming on Water Quality and Sediment and Nutrient Retention in a Tropical Catchment

Effects of Wetland Conversion to Farming on Water Quality and Sediment and Nutrient Retention in a Tropical Catchment

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Abias Uwimana
January 16, 2020

The study used a combination of landscape-scale synoptic surveys (catchment, reaches) and mesocosm surveys (experimental plots) to assess the impacts of conversion of natural valley-bottom wetlands to farming land on the water quality and retention of sediment and nutrients. The results showed that...

Understanding the Impact of Human Interventions on the Hydrology of Nile Basin Headwaters, the Case of Upper Tekeze Catchments

Understanding the Impact of Human Interventions on the Hydrology of Nile Basin Headwaters, the Case of Upper Tekeze Catchments

1st Edition

Tesfay Gebretsadkan Gebremicael
November 19, 2019

The availability and distribution of water resources in catchments are influenced by various natural and anthropogenic factors. Human-induced environmental changes are key factors controlling the hydrological flows of semi-arid catchments. Land degradation, water scarcity and inefficient...

Optimisation of Dynamic Heterogeneous Rainfall Sensor Networks in the Context of Citizen Observatories

Optimisation of Dynamic Heterogeneous Rainfall Sensor Networks in the Context of Citizen Observatories

1st Edition

Juan Carlos Chacon-Hurtado
November 12, 2019

Precipitation drives the dynamics of flows and storages in water systems, making its monitoring essential for water management. Conventionally, precipitation is monitored using in-situ and remote sensors. In-situ sensors are arranged in networks, which are usually sparse, providing continuous...

The Value of Using Hydrological Datasets for Water Allocation Decisions: Earth Observations, Hydrological Models and Seasonal Forecasts

The Value of Using Hydrological Datasets for Water Allocation Decisions: Earth Observations, Hydrological Models and Seasonal Forecasts

1st Edition

Alexander José Kaune Schmidt
November 12, 2019

An increasing number of hydrological datasets from earth observations, hydrological models and seasonal forecasts have become available for water managers, consultants and the general public. These datasets are state-of-the-art products which are usually accessible online and may contribute to...
