Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

This article discusses the socio-technical process of dam construction in the United States from the early 20th century to the present. It examines how marginal places have been the object of industrial modifications through the inventiveness and entrepreneurship of social groups and local individuals who, supported by federal measures, have...

In recent years, dam failures have occurred frequently because of extreme weather, posing a significant threat to downstream residents. The establishment of emergency shelters is crucial for reducing casualties. The selection of suitable shelters depends on key information such as the number and distribution of affected people, and the...

Landslides are major hazards that lead to cataclysmic changes in regional physiography. Their consequences are particularly significant when they affect a river system, forming dammed-lake upstream that represents a high flood threat for the downstream region. The Naryn River is the largest river in the Kyrgyz Tien Shan and is of great...

The frequent occurrence of catastrophic tailings dam failures underscores the urgent need to improve safety practices and minimise associated risks. This study introduces an advanced tool to evaluate the total Probability of Failure (PoF) of existing tailings dams systematically and effectively, supporting the rational prioritisation of...

Mangrove forests are important wetland ecosystems that inhabit intertidal zones within tropical and sub-tropical latitudes. They offer a diverse array of ecosystem services, including coastal protection and carbon sequestration. Despite their significance, global mangrove cover has declined in recent decades, prompting various restoration...

Tailings dam failures are one of the most destructive phenomena in terms of the number of victims and the environmental impact generated. Over the years, different causes have been identified, with flow liquefaction being a prominent factor to consider when assessing the stability of tailings deposits. Due to the complex nature of these events,...

The Bui Dam, the second-largest hydropower dam in Ghana, plays a significant role in the sustainable energy mix of the country. It is managed by the Bui Power Authority (BPA) and has a capacity of hydro-clean generation of 404MW, contributing to 17% of the country’s total electricity generation. However, decision-making at the dam lacks the use...

Tailings are a waste product of primary metal production. Although these metals contribute to the development of modern technology and renewable energy systems, tailings pose significant environmental, economic, and human health risks. Stored behind a dam in tailings storage facilities (TSFs) these waste materials are meant to be isolated from...

Water is essential for life on earth and is vital for numerous sectors of our society. Pressures arising from climate change, growing populations, and the shift towards clean energy accentuate the importance of effective water management. To make decisions about water resource allocation, hydraulic modeling studies have been undertaken on large...

Life before the introduction of the Czorsztyn Dam was simple and idyllic, a bustling small village community who’s local residents have resided for many generations. This took a dramatic shift in year of 1975 when construction finally began that would cause the displacement of thousands of families, the Czorsztyn lake in southern Poland is a...

Preventive Drought Management Measures (PDMMs) aim to reduce the chance of droughts and minimize drought-associated damages. Selecting PDMMs is not a trivial task, and it can be asserted that actual contributions to drought alleviation still need to be adequately researched. This study evaluates the effects of three potential PDMMs, namely,...

Cascade reservoirs are essential in water resource utilization, flood control, and disaster mitigation. They have been built in several rivers worldwide. The rank classification for cascade reservoirs has significant practical implications for resource distribution decisions and risk management strategies and is also essential for ensuring the...

Compared with a single reservoir, the risk in cascade reservoirs has the transmission and superposition effect, which increases the complexity of its risk consequence assessment. In view of this problem, the direct consequence (DC) and potential consequence (PC) were defined as two parts of the dam breach risk consequence of cascade reservoirs....

The sediment load in the Yangtze River downstream of the Three Gorges Dam (TGD) has substantially declined in recent decades. The decrease is more profound below the TGD, e.g., a 97% decrease at Yichang, compared with that at the delta apex, 1200 km downstream, e.g., a 75% decrease, implying along-river sediment recovery. Two large river...

Structural flood protection systems such as levees are an important component in flood risk reduction strategies. Levees can fail through various failure mechanisms; this thesis focuses on the mechanism Backward Erosion Piping (BEP) which occurs when a sandy levee foundation is eroded by groundwater flow. To assess whether a levee's reliability...

Owusu, A.G. (author)
For most of the 20th century, the design and operation of dams prioritized traditional economic considerations such as hydropower generation, flood risk reduction and provision of water for irrigation and domestic use. This resulted in altered river flow regimes, degraded riverine ecosystems and ecosystem services, and biodiversity loss....

Flash floods are a damaging and recurring problem in Cebu city, Philippines. Very little data is known about the intensities and precipitation amounts and the resulting river discharges. This research project firstly aims to gather as much data as possible on precipitation and river discharges that could cause the floods, it focuses on a small...

As the share of renewable energy generation increases, the need for energy storage also increases. Therefore, there is a need for better storage representation in the current energy modelling tools. In the present day,<br/>the longer-term energy storage systems are not fully represented since, for existing storage systems, the self-serving...
