  1. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. Impact of Global Changes on Mountains

    Responses and Adaptation

    Edited by Velma I. Grover, Axel Borsdorf, Jürgen Breuste, Prakash Chandra Tiwari, Flavia Witkowski Frangetto

    Mountain regions encompass nearly 24 percent of the total land surface of the earth and are home to approximately 12 percent of the world’s population. Their ecosystems play a critical role in sustaining human life both in the highlands and the lowlands. During recent years, resource use in high...

  5. Water Tower of the Yellow River in a Changing Climate

    Toward an Integrated Assessment

    By Yurong Hu

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Mountains are water towers of our world, but their role in global water resources may be altered due to changing climate. This book provides an integrated assessment of the spatial and temporal variability of both recent and future climate change impacts in the Yellow River source region (YRSR)...

  6. Fate and Transport of Nutrients in Groundwater and Surface Water in an Urban Slum Catchment, Kampala, Uganda

    By Philip Mayanja Nyenje

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Urban informal settlements or slums are growing rapidly in cities in sub-Saharan Africa. Most often, a sewer system is not present and the commonly-used low-cost onsite wastewater handling practices, typically pit latrines, are frequently unplanned, uncontrolled and inefficient. Consequently, most...

  7. Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals

    A New Approach

    By Herman Depeweg, Krishna P. Paudel, Néstor Méndez V

    Series: UNESCO-IHE Lecture Note Series

    Sediment transport in irrigation canals influences to a great extent the sustainability of an irrigation system. Unwanted erosion or deposition will not only increase maintenance costs, but may also lead to unfair, unreliable and unequitable distribution of irrigation water to the end users. Proper...
