Subsurface Flow and Transport: A Stochastic Approach by Gedeon Dagan, Shlomo P. Neuman

By Gedeon Dagan, Shlomo P. Neuman

This booklet describes a tremendous approach in modeling the move of water and delivery of solutes within the subsurface, a topic of substantial curiosity within the exploitation and upkeep of water assets. The stochastic strategy permits the uncertainty that has effects on a variety of houses and parameters to be integrated in types of subsurface movement and delivery. those even more practical types are of higher use in, for instance, modeling the shipping and buildup of contaminants in groundwater. The ebook is a beneficial reference paintings for graduate scholars, learn staff and execs in executive and public associations, and for these attracted to hydrology, environmental concerns, soil physics, petroleum engineering, geological engineering and utilized arithmetic.

Integrated Water Resources Management in Practice: Better by Roberto Lenton, Mike Muller

By Roberto Lenton, Mike Muller

Larger water administration may be the most important if we're to satisfy some of the key demanding situations of this century - feeding the world�s becoming inhabitants and lowering poverty, assembly water and sanitation wishes, conserving important ecosystems, all whereas adapting to weather swap. The procedure often called built-in Water assets administration (IWRM) is widely known because the most sensible approach ahead, yet is poorly understood, even in the water region. considering that a middle IWRM precept is that stable water administration needs to contain the water clients, the certainty and involvement of different sectors is necessary for fulfillment. there's hence an pressing want for functional counsel, for either water and improvement execs, in line with actual international examples, instead of theoretical constructs. that's what this booklet offers. utilizing case stories, the booklet illustrates how larger water administration, guided by means of the IWRM strategy, has helped to fulfill quite a lot of sustainable improvement pursuits. It does this through contemplating functional examples, how IWRM has contributed, at assorted scales, from very neighborhood, village-level studies to reforms at nationwide point and past to circumstances concerning trans-boundary river basins. utilizing those on-the-ground reviews, from either constructed and constructing international locations in 5 continents, the publication offers candid and sensible classes for policy-makers, donors, and water and improvement practitioners world wide, how IWRM ideas have been utilized, what labored, and, both vital, what didn�t paintings, and why. released with the worldwide Water Partnership

Water in Texas: An Introduction (Texas Natural History by Andrew Sansom

By Andrew Sansom

No ordinary source factor has higher value for the way forward for Texas than water. The state's call for for water for municipal, commercial, agricultural, and leisure makes use of keeps to develop exponentially, whereas the availability from rivers, lakes, aquifers, and reservoirs is proscribed. to aid Texans deal with their water assets this present day and plan for destiny wishes, one in all Texas's best water specialists has compiled this authoritative review of water concerns in Texas.

Water in Texas covers the entire significant topics in water administration and conservation:

  • Living with a constrained Resource
  • The Molecule that strikes Mountains
  • A Texas Water Journey
  • The Gulf shorelines of Texas
  • Who's Who in Water
  • Texas Water legislations: a mix of 2 Cultures
  • Does Texas Have adequate Water?
  • Planning for the Future
  • What's on your Water?
  • How a lot is Water Worth?
  • Water is Our Legacy

Illustrated with colour pictures and maps, Water in Texas would be the crucial source for landowners, citizen activists, policymakers, and town planners.

Groundwater Modelling in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas by Howard S. Wheater, Simon A. Mathias, Xin Li

By Howard S. Wheater, Simon A. Mathias, Xin Li

Arid and semi-arid areas face significant demanding situations within the administration of scarce freshwater assets less than pressures of inhabitants, monetary improvement, weather swap, pollutants and over-abstraction. Groundwater is often an important water source in those parts. Groundwater types are standard globally to appreciate groundwater structures and to lead judgements on administration. although, the hydrology of arid and semi-arid parts is particularly varied from that of humid areas, and there's little information at the distinctive demanding situations of groundwater modelling for those components. This publication brings jointly the adventure of internationally-leading specialists to fill a niche within the medical and technical literature. It introduces state of the art tools for modelling groundwater assets, illustrated with a wide-ranging set of illustrative examples from world wide. The publication is efficacious for researchers, practitioners in built and constructing nations, and graduate scholars in hydrology, hydrogeology, water assets administration, environmental engineering and geography.

Sand Control in Well Construction and Operation by Davorin Matanovic, Marin Cikes, Bojan Moslavac

By Davorin Matanovic, Marin Cikes, Bojan Moslavac

Produced sand reasons loads of difficulties. From that purposes sand construction has to be monitored and stored inside appropriate limits. Sand regulate difficulties in wells end result from flawed finishing touch options or alterations in reservoir homes.
The inspiration is to supply aid to the formation to avoid stream lower than stresses as a result of fluid movement from reservoir to good bore. that suggests that sand keep watch over frequently outcome with lowered good construction. regulate of sand creation is accomplished via: decreasing drag forces (the most cost-effective and most desirable method), mechanical sand bridging (screens, gravel packs) and lengthening of formation power (chemical consolidation). For open gap completions or with un-cemented slotted liners/screens sand failure will ensue and needs to be expected. major challenge is plugging. To wrestle good disasters as a result of plugging and sand step forward Water-Packing or Shunt-Packing are used.

Ice Destruction: Methods and Technology by V.V. Bogorodsky, V.P. Gavrilo, O.A. Nedoshivin

By V.V. Bogorodsky, V.P. Gavrilo, O.A. Nedoshivin

The challenge of ice destruction comes most often to our consciousness in engineering glaciology and ice engineering since it is key within the resolution of many difficulties within the polar areas of the Earth. Ice destruction (like the destruction of the other fabric, in precept) is a fancy challenge on the junction of solid-state physics, continuum mechanics, and fabrics technological know-how. Ice, really sea ice, is characterised by means of recognized anomalies that may be defined by way of the simultaneous incidence of sturdy, liquid and gaseous levels. Even minor temperature fluctuations reason adjustments within the dating of those levels and, to that end, switch the physico-mechanical houses of ice. New hydraulic engineering projects, linked to the destruction of this type of advanced fabric, call for non-stop development of equipment and methods. the current authors have introduced those jointly in a sort that's handy for quite a lot of clients. This ebook covers purely neighborhood ice destruction, by means of capability except icebreakers, requiring relatively low intake of energy in percentage to the quantity and mass of destroyed ice. difficulties of average ice destruction less than the impact of sun radiation, tidal, wind and wave elements usually are not dis­ stubborn. Mechanical and thermal tools have been the 1st of many for use for ice destruction. Their software has concerned a better num­ ber of concepts, so the 1st chapters are the longest.
