  1. Numerical Modelling of Hydrodynamics for Water Resources

    Proceedings of the Conference on Numerical Modelling of Hydrodynamic Systems (Zaragoza, Spain, 18-21 June 2007)

    Edited by Pilar Garcia Navarro, Enrique Playán

    Overland flow modelling has been an active field of research for some years, but developments in numerical methods and computational resources have recently accelerated progress, producing models for different geometries and types of flows, such as simulations of canal and river networks. ...

  2. Fingerponds: Managing Nutrients & Primary Productivity For Enhanced Fish Production in Lake Victoria’s Wetlands Uganda

    By Rose Kaggwa

    Fingerponds are earthen ponds dug at the edge of natural wetlands and stocked naturally with wild fish during flooding. They preserve the wetland environment in which they are situated while maintaining a productive culture system. In this study, the importance of organic manure applications in...

  3. The Dynamics of Shoreline Wetlands and Sediments of Northern Lake Victoria

    By N.G.T. Azza

    This book presents the results of research conducted between 2000 and 2004 on Lake Victoria (East Africa). The research examined the spatial spread of shoreline wetlands and found their distribution to be strongly influenced by the action of wind and waves. Evidence also pointed to a strong...

  4. Assessment of the Effects of Climate Variability and Land-Use Changes on the Hydrology of the Meuse River Basin

    PhD: UNESCO-IHE Institute, Delft

    By Tu Min

    Anthropogenic climate change may lead to intensification of the global hydrological cysle and to increased flooding risk of rivers across Europe. A series of extreme floods in European rivers in the last decades have stimulated discussions about the possible effects of climate variability/change...

  5. River Flow 2006, Two Volume Set

    Proceedings of the International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics, Lisbon, Portugal, 6-8 September 2006

    Edited by Rui M.L. Ferreira, Elsa C.T.L. Alves, Joao G.A.B. Leal, Antonio H. Cardoso

    Rivers are complex entities. In addition to being valuable wildlife habitats, they support human activities by providing water for human usage, renewable energy and convenient transportation. Rivers may also pose threats to riverine communities, in the form of floods and other natural or...

  6. River, Coastal and Estuarine Morphodynamics

    Proceedings of the 4th IAHR Symposium on River, Coastal and Estuarine Morphodynamics (RCEM 2005, Urbana, Illinois, USA, 4-7 October 2005)

    Edited by Gary Parker, Marcelo H. García

    The Proceedings of the 4th Symposium on River, Coastal and Estuarine Morphodynamics offers the latest research results concerning quantitative modelling of the interaction of water and sediment and the shapes this interaction makes. Morphodynamics is the study of the evolution of landscape and...
