Manganese Removal from Groundwater: Role of Biological and Physico-Chemical Autocatalytic Processes

J.H. Bruins
December 15, 2016

In The Netherlands, Belgium and other European countries, manganese is removed by conventional groundwater treatment with aeration and rapid (sand) filtration. Such a treatment process is easy to operate, cost effective and sustainable, because it does not make use of strong oxidants such as O3,...

Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review, Volume 54

R.N. Hughes, D. J. Hughes, I. P. Smith, A.C. Dale
December 13, 2016

Ever-increasing interest in oceanography and marine biology and their relevance to global environmental issues create a demand for authoritative reviews summarizing the results of recent research. Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review has catered to this demand since its founding by the...

Flood Hazard Mapping: Uncertainty and its Value in the Decision-making Process

Micah Mukungu Mukolwe
December 06, 2016

Computers are increasingly used in the simulation of natural phenomena such as floods. However, these simulations are based on numerical approximations of equations formalizing our conceptual understanding of flood flows. Thus, model results are intrinsically subject to uncertainty and the use of...

Operational Flood Forecasting, Warning and Response for Multi-Scale Flood Risks in Developing Cities

María Carolina Rogelis
July 25, 2016

The aim of this book is to contribute to understanding risk knowledge and to forecasting components of early flood warning, particularly in the environment of tropical high mountains in developing cities. This research covers a challenge, taking into account the persistent lack of data, limited...

Hydrology and Water Resource Systems Analysis

Maria A. Mimikou, Evangelos A. Baltas, Vassilios A. Tsihrintzis
July 18, 2016

Hydrology and water resources analysis can be looked at together, but this is the only book which presents the relevant material and which bridges the gap between scientific processes and applications in one text. New methods and programs for solving hydrological problems are outlined in a concise...

River Flow 2016: Iowa City, USA, July 11-14, 2016

George Constantinescu, Marcelo Garcia, Dan Hanes
June 24, 2016

Understanding and being able to predict fluvial processes is one of the biggest challenges for hydraulics and environmental engineers, hydrologists and other scientists interested in preserving and restoring the diverse functions of rivers. The interactions among flow, turbulence, vegetation,...

Multiple Scales of Suspended Sediment Dynamics in a Complex Geometry Estuary

Fernanda Minikowski Achete
June 08, 2016

Many estuaries are located in urbanized, highly engineered environments. Cohesive sediment plays an important role due to its link with estuarine health and ecology. An important ecological parameter is the suspended sediment concentration (SSC) translated into turbidity levels and sediment budget....
