  3. 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...

  4. Ecological Causal Assessment

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

    Series: Environmental Assessment and Management

    This book is for scientists and engineers who are involved or may become involved with a causal investigation of an undesirable ecological effect. The book provides a deeper understanding of different philosophical and analytical approaches, and of cognitive tendencies that can lead to errors....

  5. 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...

  6. 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....

  7. 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...

  8. Groundwater Geochemistry and Isotopes

    By Ian Clark

    There remains a lack of understanding of environmental isotopes and their use, students and practitioners typically find the concepts of isotope fractionation to be more complicated than for geochemistry. However, this need not be so, if the basics are presented together with geochemistry, using...

  9. 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...
