Adaptation to climate change in developing countries [Lecture notes]
Keesstra, S. \ Ludwig, F. \ Terwisscha van Scheltinga, C. \ Crane, T. \ 2014
climatic change - global warming - environmental impact - adjustment - adaptation - developing countries

Developing countries are much more vulnerable to climate change than developed nations. Especially in the more arid parts of the tropics, climate change will have pronounced effects on lively hoods through the intensification of the hydrological cycle. This will result in more droughts and floods which are both destructive for agriculture production. This course will focus on how vulnerability can be reduced by adapting to climate change. Students will work on adaptation strategies for land and water management based on climate change projections.

Hydrometry : a comprehensive introduction to the measurement of flow in open channels [Monograph] - 3rd ed
Boiten, W. \ cop. 2008
hydrometers - flow - flow meters - sedimentary materials - hydrology - channels - water level

Hydrometry presents a thorough introduction to the science of hydrometry: the measurement of flow in open channels. Dealing with both traditional techniques and innovative new methods and instruments, in line with the latest ISO standards, this book deals with the main themes of hydrometry: the measurement of water levels and bed levels, of discharge and of sediment transport; it considers the use of flow measurement structures, hydrological networks and the organization of river surveys. The author has extensive experience in teaching students from many countries and backgrounds. He has distilled this experience into a clear and comprehensive account of hydrology and water resource management.

Soil Erosion and Conservation provides a comprehensive treatment of the processes of soil erosion, the methods that can be used for their control, and the issues involved in designing and implementing soil conservation programmes. Features of the third edition textbook include: New material on gully erosion, tillage practices, erosion risk assessment, use of erosion models, incentives for farmers and land users, and community approaches to erosion control Updated sections on the mechanics of wind erosion, soil erodibility, use of vegetation in erosion control, traditional soil conservation measures, socio-economic issues and the role of government Describes the methods used to assess the risk of erosion and predict rates of soil loss Outlines the social, economic, political and institutional constraints on implementing soil protection measures Covers erosion and its control for agriculture, grazing, forestry, mining land, road banks, pipeline corridors and recreation Provides worldwide coverage of the success and failure of erosion control using material from Europe, Africa, Australia, America and Asia 1.

Understanding hydraulics [Monograph] - 2nd. ed
Hamill, L. \ 2001
fluid mechanics - hydraulics - liquids - hydrology - textbooks - hydrostatics

This text covers the full range of material needed by civil engineering students in their study of hydraulics. It begins by covering the very fundamental material with which it is important to get to grips before progressing to more advanced study. Detailed explanation of these fundamentals gives the reader a clear understanding of what happens, as well as why, when and where. The author is careful to match the mathematics to the level needed by students at this level, and a range of pedagogical devices are used to reinforce the learning. Table of contents: --- Preface --- Introduction --- Hydrostatics --- Pressure Measurement --- Stability of a Floating Body --- Fluids in Motion --- Flow Measurement --- Flow through Pipelines --- Flow under a Varying Head: Time Required to Empty a Reservoir --- Flow in Open Channels --- Hydraulic Structures --- Dimensional Analysis and Hydraulic Models --- Turbines and Pumps --- Introduction to Engineering Hydrology --- Applications of Engineering Hydrology --- Bibliography --- Appendix 1: Derivations of Equations --- Appendix 2: Solutions to Self Test Questions --- Appendix 3: Graph Paper --- Index.
