  1. 1. Forest decline in South Central Ethiopia : Extent, history and process

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Gessesse Dessie; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Forest decline; people-forest interaction; boundaries; khat expansion; remote sensing; social survey; south central Ethiopia; Awassa watershed; Wondo Genet; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; geografi med naturgeografisk inriktning;

    Abstract : This study presents the extent, history and process of forest decline in Awassa watershed, south central Ethiopia. By combining different data sources such as satellite images, social surveys and historical documents, forest decline is described quantitatively and qualitatively and the main causes behind this process are identified.

  2. 2. The Integrated Distributed Hydrological Model, ECOFLOW- a Tool for Catchment Management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Nikolay Sokrut; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : Hydrogeology; Multiple-scale hydrological modelling; Bayesian algorithm; Parameter estimation; Groundwater management; Statistical analysis; Hydrogeologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : In order to find effective measures that meet the requirements for proper groundwater quality and quantity management, there is a need to develop a Decision Support System (DSS) and a suitable modelling tool. Central components of a DSS for groundwater management are thought to be models for surface- and groundwater flow and solute transport. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hydrological and sediment yield modelling in Lake Tana Basin, Blue Nile Ethiopia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shimelis Gebriye Setegn; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : SWAT; Lake Tana; Blue Nile; hydrological modelling; watershed modelling; MCE; SUFI-2; GLUE; ParaSol; streamflows; sediment yield; erosion; water balance; model calibration; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Land and water resources degradation are the major problems on the Ethiopian highlands. Poor land use practices and improper management systems have played a significant role in causing high soil erosion rates, sediment transport and loss of agricultural nutrients. So far limited meas-ures have been taken to combat the problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Water Resources Management efforts for best water allocation in the Lake Poopo basin, Bolivia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Andres Calizaya Terceros; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : institutional arrangements; poverty; Bolivian Altiplano; Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis; Water conflict; Lake Poopo; IWRM strategy; local capacity building.; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The Lake Poopo basin, located on the Bolivian Altiplano, is extremely vulnerable to environmental degradation. The basin displays extreme spatial and temporal variations of water resources and rapidly decreasing water quality due to anthropogenic and natural pollution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrological modeling as a tool for sustainable water resources management: a case study of the Awash River Basin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Selome M. Tessema; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrological characteristics; Distributed hydrological modeling; Rainfall-runoff correlation; Streamflow prediction; Sustainable water management; Awash River Basin; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : The growing pressure on the world‘s fresh water resources is enforced by population growth that leads to conflicts between demands for different purposes. A main concern on water use is the conflict between the environment and other purposes like hydropower, irrigation for agriculture and domestic and industry water supply, where total flows are diverted without releasing water for ecological conservation.
