  1. 1. Water Governance Policy, Politics and Regulation in Honduras

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Patricia Phumpiu; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water Governance; Honduras; Institutions; Policy; Politics; Regulatory Governance; Regulatory State; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik;

    Abstract : Water governance exerts an impact on the socio-politic life of Honduras. For instance, the new legal framework changes institutions. New water organisations are created, and new processes and proceedings are proposed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Response of Bolivian Altiplano Lakes to Seasonal and Annual Climate Variations

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Ramiro Pillco; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENSO; terminal lake; bathymetry; lake level; water balance; lake routing; paleolakes; climate change; precipitation pattern; intermittent rivers.; Desaguadero River; Lake Titicaca; Lake Poopó;

    Abstract : The Bolivian Altiplano is situated between two mountain ranges, the western and eastern central Andes in South America. It has two major lakes, Lake Titicaca to the north, and Lake Poopó to the south, which both are important for the nature as well as for the living conditions on the Altiplano. The two lakes are the remnants of large paleolakes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Addressing water scarcity in the Bolivian Altiplano for sustainable water management

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Claudia Canedo Rosso; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2019-05-16]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Climatology; climate modes; Drought; Water balance; ENSO; Soil moisture; crop yield; Remote sensing; Bolivian highlands; arid and semiarid regions; Climate anomaly;

    Abstract : Water scarcity is a consequence of complex interactions between water access and water use. In fact, the time period over which precipitation deficit accumulates is a determing factor for the occurrence of drought. Drought induces crop production losses and far-reaching societal effects. In the South American Altiplano, drought is a major hazard. READ MORE

  4. 4. Core Level Spectroscopy of Water and Ice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Dennis Nordlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; x-ray adsorption spectroscopy; photoemission spectroscopy; x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; platinum; x-ray emission spectroscopy; density functional theory; hydrogen-bonded; H-bond; water; ice; electronic structure; excited state dynamics; proton dynamics; water adsorption; liquid water; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : A core level spectroscopy study of ice and water is presented in this thesis. Combining a number of experiments and spectrum calculations based on density functional theory, changes in the local valence electronic structure are shown to be sensitive to the local H-bonding configurations.

  5. 5. Water powered percussive rock drilling process analysis, modelling and numerical simulation

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Göran Tuomas; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vattenteknik; Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to problems, processes and systems related to the recently developed water powered percussive rock drilling method. The technology, which uses ordinary water to drive down-the-hole hammers, has been used to produce more than 6 million meters of blast holes within the mining industry. READ MORE
