  • The emerging water crisis in Bulgaria
  • Agriculture ; Bulgaria ; Drinking water ; Drought ; Industry ; Sofia ; Water ; Water resources ; Water supply ; Water use ; Weather type ; Years 1990-99
  • persistence remains a mystery. Similarly, from the perspective of water supply and use, it is clear that the crisis would have reached disaster proportions if had not economic downturns in industry and agriculture taken place since 1989.

  • Reflections on New Zealand water
  • Allocation ; Management ; New Zealand ; Water ; Water economics ; Water management ; Water resources ; Water use
  • Implementing the resource management act compels those responsible for managing the allocation and end-use of water resources to address several conceptual issues. They include the expansion of the range of relevant management values, regionalism

  • Environmental security and shared water resources in post-Soviet Central Asia
  • Administrative structure ; Conflict ; Environment ; Former USSR ; Irrigation ; Natural resources ; Resource management ; Security ; Soviet Central Asia ; Water ; Water quality ; Water resources
  • The paper examines the distribution of water and the location of physical and political boundaries in Central Asia, identifies indicators of the susceptibility of its various regions to resource and water-related conflict, and then applies those
  • indicators to discover the potential for future water-based resource conflict. Water quality and regional social unrest as a consequence of migration from regions of environmental deterioration are examined.

  • A partial explanation of the dependency of hydraulic conductivity on positive pore water pressure in peat soils
  • Hydrology ; Natural gas ; Peat ; Porosity ; Soil ; Soil properties ; Soil water
  • Part of the relationship between positive pore water pressures and hydraulic conductivity in peat soils may be explained by accumulations of methane bubbles. The AA. show how compression and expansion of gas bubbles with changes in pore water
  • pressure could cause changes in hydraulic conductivity and thus help to explain some observations of dependency of hydraulic conductivity in peats on pore water pressure. Consideration is also given to the effect on hydraulic conductivities of methane gas
  • going into solution with increase in pore water pressure.

  • From 1955 to 1985 an intensive hydrogeological survey has been carried out in Slovakia, in order to ascertain the conditions of forming mineral and geothermal waters in various geological structures and to find new sources of the afore-mentioned
  • waters. The survey helped to clarify the laws of their distribution and evaluate the quantitative and qualitative properties of water developing on the basis of geologic-tectonic conditions and physical-geographic terms of the given territory

  • Allocative efficiency of rural Nevada water systems: a hedonic shadow cost function
  • Countryside ; Economic efficiency ; Hedonistic model ; Nevada ; Price fixing ; United States of America ; Utility fonction ; Water ; Water economics ; Water use
  • The efficiency of the water utility firms in rural Nevada and their input optimization are examined. The methodology incorporates a hedonic specification of the cost function in estimating the effect of the regulatory environment and the quality
  • of water services on the optimum utilization of inputs. Allocative distortions are introduced through shadow prices.

  • Mahafir: a water harvesting system in the Eastern Jordan (Badia) desert
  • Arid area ; Desert ; Groundwater ; Jordan ; Methodology ; Precipitation ; Rill wash ; Storage site ; Water ; Water resources
  • This paper, in response to the growing demand for water, examines the operation of these often ancient, now largely abandoned, water harvesting systems (mahafir) and to assess wether they can offer an alternative water supply hence reducing pressure
  • on the overtaxed groundwater resource. The analysis is based upon fieldwork carried out in the Badia region during 1993. Mahafir are crescent and rectangular shaped excavations dug into the playa surface. Their source of water is primarily direct rainfall onto
