The importance of soil moisture in triggering river floods is increasingly recognized. However, soil moisture represents only a fraction of the water stored in the unsaturated zone. In contrast, groundwater from the deeper, saturated zone, may contribute a significant proportion of river flow, but its effects on flooding are poorly understood. Here...

The paper proposes a probabilistic approach to the assessment of the impacts of multipurpose dams. It is framed around the notion of Nature’s Contributions to People (NCP) in the setting of the Water-Energy-Food nexus. The socio-ecological context of the Tana River Basin in Kenya and the construction of two multipurpose dams are used to highlight c...

Water treatment is required to meet the needs of an ever-increasing population. A variety of aeration strategies can be used to aerobically maintain liquid waste by supplying an adequate supply of oxygen to microorganisms present in the organic content of wastewater. In this investigation, seven different screens with single and multiple holes tota...

Freshwater springs and other groundwater-dependent ecosystems represent important natural resources in landscapes, providing consistent, high-quality water to both freshwater and terrestrial organisms. However, spring and GDE conservation does not appear to be a prominent feature on the US conservation radar. Therefore, this study evaluated the dis...

Despite many years of establishment of exclosures in the semi-arid environments of north Ethiopia for rehabilitation of degraded areas, its effectiveness is constrained by water deficit. There is lack of empirical data on the response of vegetation to additional water (spate irrigation) application. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of spate...

The Senegal River running through the arid and semi-arid parts of Senegal, Mauritania and Mali is of vital importance in this West African region. Multi-ethnic and multicultural populations have always been deeply dependent on its ecosystems and water for subsistence economies based on fishing, agriculture and livestock. Called the lifeline of the ...

The aquatic landscapes of the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta (hereafter, the Delta) and Suisun Bay represent both a significant past and future soil carbon stock. Historical alterations of hydrologic flows have led to depletion of soil carbon stocks via emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), and loss of elevation as a result of subsidence. Optimizing eco...
