  1. Modelling Groundwater Systems: Understanding and Improving Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Girma Yimer Ebrahim

    Groundwater is increasingly subjected to excessive over-exploitation and contamination in many parts of the world. It faces the challenge of balancing its multiple functions in a sustainable manner. This thesis explores several specific problems related to contaminant migration, groundwater-surface...

  2. The Effect of Riparian Zones on Nitrate Removal by Denitrification at the River Basin Scale

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Linh Hoang

    At the interface between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the riparian zone plays an important role in nitrogen removal, despite the minor proportion of the land area that it covers. Very limited studies are carried out in modelling these effects at the river basin scales. The Soil and Water...

  3. Wastewater Stabilization Ponds

    By Frank R. Spellman, Joanne E. Drinan

    Ponds (lagoons) have been used for centuries with great success in the treatment of wastewater. Ponds created for treatment, known as stabilization ponds, model the physical and biochemical interactions that occur in natural ponds. Easy to build and manage, stabilization ponds can accommodate large...

  5. Delivering Integrated Flood Risk Management

    Governance for Collaboration, Learning and Adaptation - UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Sebastiaan van Herk

    The frequency and consequences of extreme flood events have increased rapidly worldwide in recent decades and climate change and economic growth are likely to exacerbate this trend. Flood protection measures alone cannot accommodate the future frequencies and impacts of flooding. Integrated flood...

  7. Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Valentine Uwamariya

    In general, groundwater is a preferred source of drinking water because of its convenient availability and its constant and good quality. However this source is vulnerable to contamination by several substances. Acceptable quality limits relative to micropollutant contents in drinking water are...
