New and Published Books

  1. 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...

  2. 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...

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

    By Yasir Salih Ahmed Ali

    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...

  4. Nanocomposites in Wastewater Treatment

    Edited by Ajay Kumar Mishra

    Nanocomposites have better adsorption capacity, selectivity, and stability than nanoparticles. Therefore, they find diversified applications in many areas. Recently, various methods for heavy metal detection from water have been extensively studied. The adsorption of various pollutants such as...

  5. Unstructured Cellular Automata in Ecohydraulics Modelling

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Yuqing Lin

    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....

  6. Soil Aquifer Treatment: Assessment and Applicability of Primary Effluent Reuse in Developing Countries

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Chol Deng Thon Abel

    Climate change, rapid population growth and urbanization are causing water shortage and pollution, especially in arid and semi-arid regions of the world due to the growing demand in different sectors and disposal of inadequately treated wastewater to water bodies. To tackle these challenges,...

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

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Philip Mayanja Nyenje

    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...

  8. Ecological Causal Assessment

    Edited by Susan B. Norton, Susan M. Cormier, Glenn W. Suter II

    Series: Environmental Assessment and Management

    Edited by experts at the leading edge of the development of causal assessment methods for more than two decades, Ecological Causal Assessment gives insight and expert guidance on how to identify cause-effect relationships in environmental systems. The book discusses the importance of asking the...

  9. 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...

  10. Aquananotechnology

    Global Prospects

    Edited by David E. Reisner, T. Pradeep

    The world’s fresh water supplies are dwindling rapidly—even wastewater is now considered an asset. By 2025, most of the world's population will be facing serious water stresses and shortages. Aquananotechnology: Global Prospects breaks new ground with its informative and innovative introduction of...
