Climate Change-Sensitive Water Resources Management (2021)

ISBN: 9780367257880

Ramesh S. V. Teegavarapu (Dr. T.), Elpida Kolokytha and Carlos de Oliveira Galvão.

The book provides an overview of climate change-sensitive water resources management with consideration of adaptation approaches, the assessment of climate change impacts, current contemporary management techniques, and ecological responses. Comprehensive assessments and studies from eight countries using innovative approaches that aid water management under evolving climates are documented. Topics ranging from hydrologic design to management and policy responses to climate change are discussed, which demonstrate updated theories that highlight methods, tools, and experiences on the topic of water resources under climate change. The generic approaches discussed, and their applications to dif

The IAHR symposium on ice is a biannual conference covering engineering and research on ice in fresh and salt water. The conference was first arranged in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1970. The 25th conference was planned for Trondheim, Norway in June of 2020, but due to the Covid19 pandemic it was arranged as a virtual conference in November of 2020. The conference gathered 105 participants and 87 papers were submitted and peer reviewed for the technical sessions of the conference. In addition, two plenary key note lectures were given covering the challenges of hydropower operation in the arctic and the history of ice research in Norway. The technical sessions covered a range of topics within

The IAHR Technical Committee on Education and Professional Development has organized the second virtual congress for young professionals from 30 November - 2 December 2021. The aim is to provide the Young Professionals the opportunity to present their work and get feedback from mentors.The hydro-environment community of researchers and professionals have gathered again during the 2 nd edition of the IAHR Young Professionals online Congress, once more connecting the youth with the not-so-youth. The congress has welcomed 840 participants from 90 different countries. The participants have had access to 100 research contributions offered by young professionals who have been supported b

The online Youth Water Congress held between 6-8 April 2022. It is co-organized by the UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (IHP) together with UNESCO Centre on Integrated and Multidisciplinary Water Resources Management (CIMWRM), hosted by the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), the Aristotle University (AUTh), and the Youth Delegates to the World Water Council (YDWWC). More than 650 attendees from 84 countries, 17 mentors from 15 countries, as well as 5 keynote experts contributed with their innovative ideas, experience, and knowledge. These e-proceedings include fifty-two (52) extended abstracts of 169 authors.The pa

Hydraulics of Levee Overtopping (2021)

ISBN: 9780367277277

Lin Li, Farshad Amini, Yi Pan, Saiyu Yuan and Bora Cetin.


This book presents a cutting-edge approach to understanding overtopping hydraulics under negative freeboard of earthen levees, and to the study of levee reinforcing methods. This approach combines a soil erosion test, a full-scale laboratory overtopping hydraulics test, and numerical modelling for turbulent overtopping hydraulics. It provides an analysis that integrates the mechanical and hydraulic processes governing levee overtopping occurrences and engineering approaches to reinforce overtopped levees.

Rivers form one of the lifelines in our society by providing essential services such as availability of fresh water, navigation, energy, ecosystem services, and flood conveyance. Because of this essential role, mankind has interfered continuously in order to benefit most and at the same time avoid adverse consequences such as flood risk and droughts. This has resulted in often highly engineered rivers with a narrow set of functions. In the last decades rivers are increasingly considered in a more holistic manner as a system with a multitude of interdependent processes. River research and engineering has therefore added to the river fundamentals also themes like ecohydraulics, consequences of

Hydraulic Engineering of Dams (2021)

ISBN: 9780415621533

Willi H. Hager, Anton J. Schleiss,Robert Boes,Michael Pfister

Hydraulic engineering of dams and their appurtenant structures counts among the essential tasks to successfully design safe water-retaining reservoirs for hydroelectric power generation, flood retention, and irrigation and water supply demands. In view of climate change, especially dams and reservoirs, among other water infrastructure, will and have to play an even more important role than in the past as part of necessary mitigation and adaptation measures to satisfy vital needs in water supply, renewable energy and food worldwide as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. This book deals with the major hydraulic aspects of dam engineering considering recent de

Handbook of Environmental Fluid Dynamics, Volume One: Overview and Fundamentals

ISBN: 9780367445874

With major implications for applied physics, engineering, and the natural and social sciences, the rapidly growing area of environmental fluid dynamics focuses on the interactions of human activities, environment, and fluid motion. A landmark for the field, the two-volume Handbook of Environmental Fluid Dynamics presents the basic principles, fundamental flow processes, modeling techniques, and measurement methods used in the study of environmental motions. It also offers critical discussions of environmental sustainability related to engineering. The handbook features 81 chapters written by 135 renowned researchers from around the world.
