  • The key indicators of transboundary water apportionment based on international laws and cases
  • Africa ; Asia ; Conflict ; Discharge ; Europe ; Fresh water ; Frontier ; Nineteenth Century ; North America ; South America ; Stream ; Twenty-first century ; Water ; Water management ; Water supply ; Watershed
  • This article discusses the key indicators of transboundary water apportionment based on international laws and cases (1864-2002). The results show that in North America and Europe, the indicators are “keeping minimum water flow” and “mean annual
  • runoff”, but in Asia, Africa and South America, the major adopted indicators in the watersheds with insufficient water are “mean annual runoff” and “keeping minimum water flow”, the ones in the watersheds with sufficient water are “keeping minimum water
  • flow” and “maximum water intake”. It concludes that the regional distribution of the treaties shifts mainly to Asia and Africa; the major adopted indicators shifts from “keeping minimum water flow” and “mean annual runoff” in 1864–1945, to “keeping
  • minimum water flow” and “maximum water intake” in 1946–1971, then to “hydraulic facility operation” and “mean annual runoff” in 1972–1991, and finally to “keeping minimum water flow” and “mean annual runoff” in 1992–2002, the process shows similar a loop.

  • Regeneration process of the karst water springs in Transdanubian Mountains, Hungary
  • Since the 1940s and 50s, there have been several researches dealing with karst water springs and the mapping of the continuous karst water level of the Transdanubian Mountains. The karst water level sank because of the intense bauxite and coal
  • mining between the 1950s and 1980s and it started to increase after the decrease of mining activity. The paper is about the mineral contents and geomorphic properties of karst water springs near a chosen reservoir and authors’ aim was to get some
  • information about the regeneration process of the karst water reservoir. The geomorphic properties of karst water springs were mapped, using detailed field survey (DGPS) and geomorphic mapping. - (AM)

  • The unintended consequences of ecological modernization : debt-induced reconfiguration of the water cycle in Barcelona
  • Barcelona ; Catalonia ; Ecological modernization ; Governance ; Indebtedness ; Private sector ; Spain ; Urban economy ; Water ; Water cycle ; Water management ; Water supply
  • In this paper we first present a review of the recent literature on private participation in the water sec-tor in order to show the complex ways and forms through which this may proceed. Second, we introduce the governance and management
  • architecture of the urban water cycle in Barcelona. Then we move to the construction of the hegemonic discourse on the need to reconfigure the water administration, opening the door to private capital. In the following section we trace and discuss how debt has
  • increased as a result of ecological modernization imposed mostly by European Directives coupled with inadequate financing of the water cycle. Finally, we discuss what may be learnt from Barcelona that could be relevant for theoretical debates around
  • the neoliberalization of water and of nature in general and for empirical debates on the forms taken by private participation in the water cycle in a context of debt-induced austerity.

  • Water renewal time of the Yellow River mainstream based on reservoir action
  • China ; Huang He ; Hydraulic works ; Model ; Reservoir ; Runoff ; Seasonal variation ; Stream ; Water management ; Water needs ; Water resources
  • This note analyzes the change in water renewal time characteristics based on reservoir action and then establishes calculation models for the water renewal time in the Yellow River mainstream. The results indicate that the amount of renewable water
  • with reservoir action can meet the annual water demand and that water flows naturally at the Lijin station near estuary. Initial storage dynamics is an important factor in water resource renewable capacity at a certain time, and rational reservoir action can
  • promote sustainable water resource utilization. Flow stoppage appears in April and May.

  • In this paper, based on synthetical analysis of the characteristics of eco-environments of China, the principles, indices and nomenclature of the regionalization of soil and water conservation are proposed. Through the construction
  • of the regionalization of soil and water conservation collaboration platform and data reporting system, combined with existing soil and water conservation research, this paper uses the top-down and bottom-up and the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods
  • to build soil and water conservation regionalization preliminary scheme, with 8 regions, 41 sub-regions and 117 sections divided in China.

  • geochemistry, soil exchange pool and soil pore water hydrochemistry; stream water and groundwater hydrochemistry were analysed as well. This investigation aimed to: 1) trace water through soils, into the groundwater, and to the stream; and 2) investigate soil
  • and regolith weathering hydrochemistry. Strontium isotope analysis of the groundwater, stream water, soil pore water, and soil exchange pool has established that the stream water is a mix of soil water and groundwater. This mix varies seasonally due to large
  • changes in soil water input. The weathering is thought to be concentrated in the vadose zone at the transition between bedrock and saprolite.

  • Using case material and ethnographic vignettes from a larger geographic project on water rights and governance in New Mexico. Water adjudication is examined as a vital instrument in the state's pursuit of spatial knowledge. The A. explores how
  • the formalizing of water rights has articulated new legal-spatial relationships. The products of adjudications and the tension between local and expert knowledge in natural resources governance are examined.

  • This article examines crop water productivity (CWP) of winter wheat and summer maize from 2003 to 2007 in the Haihe River Basin based on large-scale evapotranspiration (ET) and crop yield obtained by remote sensing technology. Results show both
  • variations in CWP of winter wheat and summer maize in most parts of the study area. They also show certain promotion potential to alleviate the water shortage. Correlation analysis of CWP, crop yield and ET shows that there is great potential for crop yield

  • Evaluating the performance of reservoirs in semi-arid catchments of Tigray : Tradeoff between water harvesting and soil and water conservation
  • Ethiopia ; Evaporation ; Experimental catchment ; Hydraulic works ; Irrigation ; Model ; Northern Ethiopia ; Precipitation ; Reservoir ; Runoff ; Semi-arid area ; Water balance ; Water management ; Watershed
  • The AA. evaluated the performance of 2 micro dams in Tigray by analyzing rainfall characteristics, surface water inflows and combined evaporation and seepage losses. Given the scarcity of reliable meteorological stations, transfer of rainfall data
  • -runoff models were used to predict the inflow to the reservoirs. They slightly overestimated the monthly inflow for the catchment without soil and water conservation measures. In the catchment where soil and water conservation measures were implemented
  • , the inflow was overestimated by a factor 3. The high losses of water through seepage and evaporation substantially decreased the irrigation capacity. This case study illustrates that an integrated assessment of the hydrological response in the catchment
  • is necessary for an adequate design of water harvesting systems.

  • Watering our cities : The capacity for Water Sensitive Urban Design to support urban cooling and improve human thermal comfort in the Australian context
  • Australia ; Climatic change ; Comfort ; Evapotranspiration ; Green infrastructure ; Heat island ; Impact ; Infiltration ; Town ; Urban climate ; Urban cooling ; Urban ecology ; Vegetation ; Water resources
  • This paper draws on existing literature to demonstrate the potential of Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) to help improve outdoor human thermal comfort in urban areas and support Climate Sensitive Urban Design (CSUD) objectives within
  • the Australian context. WSUD provides a mechanism for retaining water in the urban landscape through stormwater harvesting and reuse while also reducing urban temperatures through enhanced evapotranspiration and surface cooling. Research suggests that WSUD
  • features are broadly capable of lowering temperatures and improving human thermal comfort, and when integrated with vegetation (especially trees) have potential to meet CSUD objectives. The AA. suggest that WSUD can provide a source of water across
