  • Wetland Soils

    Genesis, Hydrology, Landscapes, and Classification, Second Edition

    By Michael J. Vepraskas, Christopher B. Craft, J.L. Richardson

    In the U.S., both federal and state laws prevent wetlands from being filled in or drained unless permits are obtained by an agency of the federal government. Boundaries of a wetland must be identified and located in the field by examining three parameters: wetland plants, wetland hydrology, and…

  • Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

    By Prabhat Chandra Chandra

    In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often…

  • Pressure and Temperature Well Testing

    By Izzy M. Kutasov, Lev V. Eppelbaum

    The book comprises two parts: Pressure and Flow Well Testing (Part I) and Temperature Well Testing (Part II), and contains numerous authors’ developments. Due to the similarity in Darcy’s and Fourier’s laws the same differential diffusivity equation describes the transient flow of incompressible…

  • Low-cost space-borne data for inundation modelling: topography, flood extent and water level

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Kun Yan

    This thesis aims to explore the potential and limitations of low-cost, space-borne data in flood inundation modelling under unavoidable, intrinsic uncertainty. In particular, the potential in supporting hydraulic modelling of floods of: NASA’s SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission) topographic…

  • Soil hydrological impacts and climatic controls of land use and land cover changes in the Upper Blue Nile (Abay) basin

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Ermias Teferi Demessie

    Human beings strongly depend on the sustainable availability of resources, such as food, water and energy. The continued supply of these resources can only be assured by sustainable land uses but these are easily threatened by inappropriate human activities. Human behavior is intermingled with…
