Water scarcity is a problem not only in the Tarim river but worldwide. Starting from water scarcity in the upper reaches of the Tarim River, this research focuses on exploring the possible solution for water scarcity and unsustainable livelihood for farmers in this region. By referring to similar cases and literature, principles of water-saving,...

The natural development of the morphology of rivers in time is important due to the functions rivers fulfil, such as navigability and drinking water supply. Rivers adjust their morphology when there is a change in the river controls, which are mainly the water discharge, sediment discharge and downstream water level. The morphology adjustments...

Myanmar lacks a water quality monitoring system to monitor changes in water quality in the Ayeyarwady Basin. This study aims to find to what extent changes in water quality can be measured in the Ayeyarwady basin and to identify requirements for a water quality monitoring system. In this study, the current water quality monitoring systems of the...

Due to climate change, glaciers are melting on the Tibetan Plateau. These glaciers are the water source for big rivers as the Brahmaputra which stream towards the most densely populated area on Earth. Previous studies indicated that water surface heights of lakes connected to the glaciers are increasing in the north of the Tibetan Plateau, while...

The world is urbanising rapidly, with the Global South as the part of the world with the most rapid urbanisation. The urban population of Ethiopia is predicted to nearly triple in 25 years. The swiftness of urbanisation is resulting in extreme challenges. It causes, reinforced by climate change, that Addis Ababa is increasingly affected by...

Coastal areas and riverine cities accommodate the great majority of the world’s population, but they are extremely vulnerable to flooding risks. In the cities next to the Medway River estuary, the capacity to adapt to flood risks had been weakened by urban development and intense industrial usage. This degrading led to the loss of flood buffers...

The Xingu River Basin sits within the Amazon Biome and integrates its deforestation belt. It is home to a multitude of endemic species and indigenous nations which are now threatened by the disruption of the river’s water pulse caused by the construction and operation of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric Dam. As we face our planet’s ecological...

The project for a public bath in Belgrade offers a chance to reflect on the current transformations of the city. On the one hand, the rivers. The role that the Sava and the Danube played in the life of the city changed from borders to infrastructural arteries in the past century, turning the shores of the city into industrial areas. Connected by...

The formation of this triangular land and lasting cultivation upon it has transformed the Red River Delta into a highly anthropocentric rice-based delta. The delta area is affected by climate change variability as externalities, a fast and persistent urban expansion and environmental degradation presenting an increasing socio-ecological...

Guangzhou is one of the biggest cities in China, and it is located in Pearl River Delta, which has a vulnerable natural environment. In history, the development of Guangzhou city was inseparable from its canal system, which was developed from the natural dense river network. On the one hand, this system had played its role in water management...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate the evolution of Ilissos and Kifissos river basins in Athens, Greece and the ways this evolution was influenced by specific human factors. The dynamics of the human-water interactions have been studied in the frame of sociohydrology and the central key was to study the impact society had on the...

Sediment management is necessary to keep the Waal navigable. Sediment management in the Waal is carried out by both dredging and plowing of the river bed. By analysing historic data available at Rijkswaterstaat, the relation between the hydrograph and the amount of required dredging and plowing is investigated. Also the influence of the...

The Mara Wetland in Tanzania has an important role in regulating the quality, timing and magnitude of the flow of water into Lake Victoria. In addition, the wetland provides natural resources for local communities and habitat for variety of species. The planned dam construction upstream of the wetland and projected changes in the local climate...

Accurate estimates of terrestrial water storage variations (TWSV) are critical for a variety of applications, e.g., model calibration and climate studies. This study aims to find the added value of river run-off data for regularizing GRACE mascon solution, from which TWSV can be estimated. Most subbasins of the Mississippi Basin show an...

The Meuse river has been made navigable for ships by the construction of a cascade of seven weirs. At only two weirs hydropower facilities exist. This implies the full hydropower potential of the Meuse cascade is not utilized. Rijkswaterstaat only provides additional permits when fish friendly turbines are used. By using pump-turbines the river...

Banks constitute important areas for the river ecology since they provide a multitude of favourable conditions for flora and fauna. The hydromorphological diversity typical of these transitional zones between water and land, and the associated processes of erosion and accretion, make riverbanks vital for many aquatic and riparian plants and...

River floods are becoming increasingly devastating because of climate change (more frequent and extreme rainfall), population growth and the increasing economic importance of river basins. This situation requires maintenance and strengthening of flood-defence systems.<br/><br/>Adding certain types of vegetation at precise locations for their...

River ice is a major contributor to flood risk in cold regions due to the physical impediment of flow caused by ice jamming. Although a variety of classifiers have been developed to distinguish ice types using HH or VV intensity of SAR data, mostly based on data from RADARSAT-1 and -2, these classifiers still experience problems with breakup...
