  2. Tubular String Characterization in High Temperature High Pressure Oil and Gas Wells

    By Jiuping Xu, Zezhong Wu

    Series: Multiphysics Modeling

    High temperature, high oil pressure, oil and gas well completion testing have always been a technical challenge and basic theoretical research is one of the key factors needed to ensure a successful completion test. The completion test basic theory includes: a stress analysis of the completion...

  3. Surface and Subsurface Runoff Generation Processes in a Poorly Gauged Tropical Coastal Catchment

    A Study from Nicaragua

    By Heyddy Calderon Palma

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Hydrological research in humid tropics is particularly challenging because of highly variable hydrological conditions and high socio-economic stresses caused by rapid population increase, as is the case of Nicaragua. The objective of this research is to understand the surface and subsurface runoff...

  4. Phosphate in Soils

    Interaction with Micronutrients, Radionuclides and Heavy Metals

    Edited by H. Magdi Selim

    Series: Advances in Trace Elements in the Environment

    Edited by One of the Best Specialists in Soil Science Recent studies reveal that Phosphorus (P) in the form of phosphate, a macronutrient essential for plant growth, and crop yields can influence the bioavailability, retention, and mobility of trace elements, metal(loid)s, and radio nuclides in...

  5. Biochar for Environmental Management

    Science, Technology and Implementation, 2nd Edition

    Edited by Johannes Lehmann, Stephen Joseph

    Biochar is the carbon-rich product which occurs when biomass (such as wood, manure or crop residues) is heated in a closed container with little or no available air. It can be used to improve agriculture and the environment in several ways, and its persistence in soil and ...

  10. Refining the Committee Approach and Uncertainty Prediction in Hydrological Modelling

    By Nagendra Kayastha

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Due to the complexity of hydrological systems a single model may be unable to capture the full range of a catchment response and accurately predict the stream flows. A solution could be in the use of several specialized models organized in the so-called committees. Refining the committee approach...
