IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Modeling the influence of sea level rise on fecal coliform contamination in tidal estuarine system
Author : Wen-Cheng Liu1,2, *, Wen-Ting Chan1
Estuaries are the crucially vital aquatic resources in the world. They provide food
resources and habit for ecologically and economically important fish and shellfish
species, recreational regions, educational and scientific experiences, and other
important ecosystem services. However, adverse impacts on the estuarine ecosystem
by environmental perturbations (e.g., anthropogenic nutrient loading, land use change,
hydrological modification) have been widely reported (McGlathery et al., 2007;
Wild-Allen et al., 2013). Numerical water quality models have been used to assist the
understanding of biological processes and assessment the influences of climate
change on water quality conditions in aquatic systems (Paliwa and Patra, 2011; Long
et al., 2011; Gao et al., 2013). However, little knowledge is focused on investigating
the influences of climate change induced the change of freshwater discharge and sea
level rise on local microbiological water quality.
