Assessment of Human-Induced Effects on Sea/Brackish Water Chlorophyll-a Concentration in Ha Long Bay of Vietnam with Google Earth Engine
Chlorophyll-a is one of the most important water quality parameters that can be observed by satellite imagery. It plays a significant function in the aquatic environments of rapidly developing coastal cities such as Ha ...
Past and Future Land Use/Land Cover Changes in the Ethiopian Fincha Sub-Basin
The increasing human pressure on African regions is recognizable when looking at Land Use Land Cover (LULC) change maps, generally derived from satellite imagery. Using the Ethiopian Fincha watershed as a case study, the ...
Modelling the Effects of Dam Reservoir Backwater Fluctuations on the Hydrodynamics of a Small Mountain Stream
The water depth and flow velocity of a river may be temporarily disturbed by the water level fluctuations connected with the operation of artificial dam reservoirs located downstream (so-called backwater fluctuations (BF)). ...
Spatiotemporal variations of riverine flood fatalities: 70 years global to regional perspective
(IWHR Wiley, 2023-05-14)
Floods are among the most devastating natural hazards worldwide. While rainfall is the primary trigger of floods, human activities and climate change can exacerbate the impacts of floods and lead to more significant economic ...
SWAT model-based quantification of the impact of land use land cover change on sediment yield in the Fincha watershed, Ethiopia
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2023-09-07)
In recent years, Ethiopia is facing problems due to soil erosion, mainly because of the conversion of natural vegetation into cultivated land to answer to increasing human pressure. Such changes in coverage are fostering ...
Can sediments play a role in river flood risk mapping? Learning from selected European examples
(Springer Nature, 2023-09-28)
Background: Climate change and increasing anthropogenic pressure are two of the major drivers of increasing extreme events like droughts and floods. To deal with the increasing number of flooding events hitting Europe in ...
