River Basin Management IX

C.A. Brebbia,

River Basin Management IX
 
 
Forming the 9th volume from this successful international conference series, this book marks a growing global interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems. The included papers take in to account all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. In recent years, work on river restoration and rehabilitation has had various degrees of success. Changes in the landscape, use of the land and climate conditions lead to a continuous revaluation of river basin management objectives requiring the development of better measuring tools in conjunction with accurate computer technology. Floods and associated landslides, erosion and sedimentation can have serious effects on life and property and on the basin ecology. Man made changes in the river basin can also create significant problems. The following subject areas are covered in the publication: Water resources management; Flood risk management; Ecological and environmental impact; Erosion and sediment transport; Hydrological modelling; River restoration and rehabilitation; Hydropower issues and development; River and watershed management; Water quality issues; Organic contamination management; Agricultural pollution; Transboundary water issues; Estuaries and deltas; Climate change; Remote sensing; Hydraulic structures; Rain water management; Water energy nexus; Drought assessment and management; Ecosystem services.
