  1. 1. Hydrological effects of water harvesting techniques

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Slah Nasri; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik; offshore technology; hydraulic engineering; hydrological effects; Civil engineering; rainwater harvesting; erosion;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates hydrological effects of large-scale water harvesting techniques on local water balances as well as sediment erosion. The techniques of tabias, soil contour ridges and small hill reservoirs are investigated. Pertinent processes are observed and simulated using various hydrological models.. READ MORE

  2. 2. Global and continental perspectives on the sustainability of future agricultural water management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Luigi Piemontese; Fernando Jaramillo; Luigia Brandimarte; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water; sustainable water management; agriculture; water harvesting; climate change; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Abstract : Ensuring water and food security in the Anthropocene requires an understanding of combined climate change patterns and land and water management options from local to global scale. In many regions, irrigation from river and groundwater sources is being used at unsustainable rates and climate change will further threaten those water sources. READ MORE
