  1. Coagulation and Ultrafiltration in Seawater Reverse Osmosis Pretreatment

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By S. Assiyeh Alizadeh Tabatabai

    This study investigates the role of coagulation in enhancing hydraulic performance and permeate quality of UF membranes and provides insight into options for minimizing or ideally eliminating coagulation from UF pre-treatment to SWRO. Results show that coagulation improves UF hydraulic performance...

  3. Calcium and Magnesium in Groundwater

    Occurrence and Significance for Human Health

    Edited by Lidia Razowska-Jaworek

    Series: IAH - Selected Papers on Hydrogeology

    Calcium and magnesium are abundant in groundwater, but the role of groundwater as the essential source of these important nutrients is very often neglected. Hydrogeochemical studies have focused mainly on the distribution and behaviour of constituents that cause deterioration of water quality, such...

  4. Contesting Hidden Waters

    Conflict Resolution for Groundwater and Aquifers

    By W. Todd Jarvis

    Series: Earthscan Water Text

    The world increasingly relies on groundwater resources for drinking water and the provision of food for a growing population. The utilization of aquifer systems also extends beyond freshwater supply to include other resources such as heat extraction and the storage and disposal of substances. ...

  6. Algal Blooms and Membrane Based Desalination Technology

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Loreen Ople Villacorte

    Seawater desalination is rapidly growing in terms of installed capacity (~80 million m3/day in 2013), plant size and global application. An emerging threat to this technology is the seasonal proliferation of microscopic algae in seawater known as algal blooms. Such blooms have caused operational...

  7. Networked Environments for Stakeholder Participation in Water Resources and Flood Management

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Adrian Delos Santos Almoradie

    Stakeholders’ lack of awareness, involvement and participation in the planning and management of water resources and flood risk often creates problems in the acceptance and implementation of proposed measures. Interactions among stakeholders and decision makers build awareness, trust, enhance...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...
