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 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

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

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

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of fluvial processes leading to the emergence of a multitude of alluvial forms. This book concerns the physics and analytical treatment of various fluvial processes and the associated alluvial bed and plan forms listed above. Following an introductory chapter on the basics of turbulent flow and sediment transport, the book covers the origin, geometric characteristics and effects of bed forms, from s

This is the second volume of a two-volume guide to designing, conducting and interpreting laboratory and field experiments in a broad range of topics associated with hydraulic engineering. Specific guidance is provided on methods and instruments currently used in experimental hydraulics, with emphasis on new and emerging measurement technologies and methods of analysis. Additionally, this book offers a concise outline of essential background theory, underscoring the intrinsic connection between theory and experiments. This book is much needed, as experimental hydraulicians have had to refer to guidance scattered in scientific papers or specialized monographs on essential aspects of laborator
