  • Drinking water ; Morocco ; Mountain ; Use conflict ; Water
  • Conflicts over drinking water in rural areas are not uncommon and are often associated with aridity and drought. The article shows, however, that disparities in access to drinking water do better explain these conflicts than ecological conditions

  • Water Supply and Health in India
  • Health ; India ; Pollution ; Regional disparities ; Water ; Water quality
  • In many parts of India, neither the quantity nor the quality of drinking water supplied to the public comply with required standards. In addition there are vast disparities between different regions and communities. The article deals with a chronic

  • Critical Water Problems in Tajikistan: Inventory and Prospect
  • Cultural studies ; International relations ; Inventory ; Natural resources ; Prospecting ; Tadzhikistan ; Water ; Water management ; Water resources
  • Water is Tajikistan´s most natural resource and national asset. Tajikistan´s vast freshwater resources figure prominently in the country´s culture, outlook, economic development, and international relations. Located at the headwaters of some
  • of Central Asia´s mightiest rivers, Tajikistan is uniquely positioned in discussions and debates surrounding the transboundary allocation and utilization of water that originates within its borders. - (IfL)

  • Nature park ; Poland ; Water ; Water supply
  • The article concentrates on presenting changes in the water and sewage systems density in the Krajna Landscape Park (KLP). The article also presents the scope of the water supply and sewage systems between 1995 and 2006. The analysis has been
  • carried out on the basis of the following variables: length of the water supply and sewage systems, systems’ density indicator, and the length of the water supply system per 1 km of the sewage system. - (BJ)

  • Diurnal and seasonal water variations of temperature, pH, redox potential and conductivity in gnammas (weathering pits) : implications for chemical weathering

  • of the gnamma-water system. Parameters monitored were air and water temperature, pH, ORP (redox potential), and conductivity. These measurements describe the system dynamics, without the need for special sampling or other potential interferences under low water
  • volumes. Overflow of water during the winter, when the water is chemically enriched, is an effective mechanism to remove weathering products.

  • Discharge ; Hydrology ; Slovenia ; Water management ; Water resources
  • Mean discharges in a certain period on the watercourses with no established gauging stations need to be estimated. Such estimation is important for determining the availability of the water resources and water management. The article presents some

  • Modeling daily soil water dynamics during vertical drainage using the incoming flow concept
  • Belgium ; Comparative study ; Cultivated land ; Drainage ; Georgia (USA) ; Model ; Soil ; Soil water ; United States of America ; Water balance
  • The aim of this study was to develop a quasi-analytic model to calculate the daily soil water dynamics during vertical drainage with reasonable accuracy for diverse soils, i.e., light, medium and heavy soils using the incoming flow concept. Three

  • Water dispersible clay in calcareous soils of southwestern Spain
  • Agricultural practice ; Clay mineral ; Cultivated land ; Erodibility ; Semi-arid area ; Soil ; Soil erosion ; Soil properties ; Spain ; Water erosion
  • Water dispersible clay (WDC) is a good indicator of the risk of soil erosion by water and the consequent losses of nutrients and contaminants in overland flow. The AA. measured the content and studied the properties of WDC in 26 samples
  • of calcareous Xeralfs, Xerepts and Xererts of southwestern Spain collected from fields under different crop and tillage management. Results and discussion on : soil properties; properties of the clay fractions; water dispersible clay; phosphorus in water

  • Modelling dynamic water redistribution patterns in arid catchments in the Negev Desert of Israel
  • Arid area ; Desert ; Infiltration ; Israel ; Model ; Negev ; Plant cover ; Vegetation ; Water ; Water cycle ; Watershed
  • The process of water redistribution at catchment scale is studied with the landscape process model LAPSUS, mainly used for erosion and sedimentation modelling. LAPSUS, formerly applied in Mediterranean climates, is modified to deal with the arid
  • climate of the Negev Desert of Israel. Daily event based model runs were used instead of yearly model runs, and the infiltration module was modified to better represent the spatial diversity in water availability in an arid catchment. The model
