Constructed Subsurface Wetlands: Case Study and Modeling

Abdel Razik Ahmed Zidan, Mohammed Ahmed Abdel Hady
August 15, 2017

With a sharp focus on environmental pollution and its impact on life and nature, scientists and engineers have studied the water treatment effect of natural wetlands for many years, resulting in the development of constructed wetlands (CWs) for treating wastewater. This informative new book...

Geothermal, Wind and Solar Energy Applications in Agriculture and Aquaculture

Jochen Bundschuh, Guangnan Chen, D. Chandrasekharam, Janusz Piechocki
July 17, 2017

The agri-food chain consumes about one third of the world’s energy production with about 12% of it for crop production and nearly 80% for processing, distribution, retail, preparation and cooking. The agri-food chain also accounts for 80-90% of total global freshwater use where 70% alone is for...

Ali Dinar Abdullah
January 04, 2017

This book reports the first systematic monitoring and modelling study on water availability, water quality and seawater intrusion of the Shatt al-Arab River (SAR) on the border of Iraq and Iran, where causes and concentration levels of salinity have not yet been fully understood, let alone...

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,...

Managing Basin Interdependencies in a Heterogeneous, Highly Utilized and Data Scarce River Basin in Semi-Arid Africa: The Case of the Pangani River Basin, Eastern Africa

Jeremiah Kipkulei Kiptala
November 29, 2016

For integrated water resources management both blue and green water resources in a river basin and their spatial and temporal distribution have to be considered. This is because green and blue water uses are interdependent. In sub-Saharan Africa, the upper landscapes are often dominated by rainfed...
