  1. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. Unstructured Cellular Automata in Ecohydraulics Modelling

    By Yuqing Lin

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    The field of ecohydraulics integrates hydrodynamic and eco-dynamic 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....

  9. Modeling Estuarine Morphodynamics under Combined River and Tidal Forcing

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Leicheng Guo

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    This research is dedicated to studying longterm 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...

  10. Permeable Reactive Barrier

    Sustainable Groundwater Remediation

    Edited by Ravi Naidu, Volker Birke

    Series: Advances in Trace Elements in the Environment

    Remediation of groundwater is complex and often challenging. But the cost of pump and treat technology, coupled with the dismal results achieved, has paved the way for newer, better technologies to be developed. Among these techniques is permeable reactive barrier (PRB) technology, which allows...
