  1. Sediment Transport in Irrigation Canals

    A New Approach

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

    Series: UNESCO-IHE Delft 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. 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.
