New and Published Books

  1. Membrane Fabrication

    Edited by Nidal Hilal, Ahmad Fauzi Ismail, Chris Wright

    Membranes play a crucial role in ensuring the optimum use and recovery of materials in manufacturing. In the process industries, they are required for efficient production and minimization of environmental impact. They are also essential for the efficient production of clean water, a significant...

  2. Disposal and Management of Solid Waste

    Pathogens and Diseases

    By Eliot Epstein

    Disposal and Management of Solid Waste: Pathogens and Diseases takes a closer look at pathogens that are found in solid wastes and the diseases that they produce. While comparing the differences between developed and developing countries, this book provides an understanding of the risks and...

  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. Transient Free Surface Flows in Building Drainage Systems

    By John Swaffield

    Climate change will present a series of challenges to engineers concerned with the provision of both building internal appliance drainage networks and rainwater systems within the building boundary, generally identified as the connection to the sewer network. Climate change is now recognised as...

  5. Drought: Research and Science-Policy Interfacing

    Edited by Joaquin Andreu, Abel Solera, Javier Paredes-Arquiola, David Haro-Monteagudo, Henny van Lanen

    Droughts occur in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, but also in humid areas, and can develop over short periods (flash drought) or longer periods (seasons/decades). Even though progress has been made, it remains difficult to adequately characterize, monitor, forecast and manage droughts, due...

  6. Unstructured Cellular Automata in Ecohydraulics Modelling

    By Yuqing Lin

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    The field of ecohydraulics integrates hydrodynamic and ecodynamic processes. While hydrodynamic processes are usually well described by partial differential equations (PDE’s) based on physical conservation principles, ecosystem dynamics often involve specific interactions at the local scale....

  7. Modeling Estuarine Morphodynamics under Combined River and Tidal Forcing

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Leicheng Guo

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    This work is dedicated to studying long-term estuarine morphodynamic behavior under combined river and tidal forcing. Analysis of river tides in the Yangtze River estuary (YRE) in China, schematized morphodynamic modeling in 1D and 2D mode and morphodynamic modeling of the YRE based on a...

  8. Permeable Reactive Barrier

    Sustainable Groundwater Remediation

    Edited by Ravi Naidu, Volker Birke

    Series: Advances in Trace Elements in the Environment

    Remediation of ground water is complex and often challenging. The passive remediation technology, currently in vogue, is based on permeable reactive barriers (PRB) that allow water to pass through while the fence/barrier made of reactive materials remediates the contaminants. Although PRB has been...

  9. Harmful Algae Blooms in Drinking Water

    Removal of Cyanobacterial Cells and Toxins

    By Harold W. Walker

    Series: Advances in Water and Wastewater Transport and Treatment

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occurring in freshwater, and the associated toxins they produce, are dangerous to animals and humans. Mitigating the increasing presence of HABs presents a major challenge to water managers and drinking water utilities across the world. This book explores the current...

  10. The Impact of Soil Erosion in the Upper Blue Nile on Downstream Reservoir Sedimentation

    By Yasir Salih Ahmed Ali

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Population growth in the Blue Nile Basin has led to fast land-use changes from forest to agricultural land, which resulted in speeding up the soil erosion processes producing highly negative impacts on the local soil fertility and agricultural productivity. The eroded sediment is transported...
