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)). ...
Parameter Uncertainty Analysis for Streamflow Simulation Using SWAT Model in Nashe Watershed, Blue Nile River Basin, Ethiopia
The hydrological model is an important tool in water resource management, allocation, and prediction. However, the hydrological models are subject to the uncertainty resulting from di erent sources of errors involved in ...
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 ...
Book of Extended Abstracts. International Symposium on Drought and Climate Change, 24-25 November 2022
(Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, 2022-11)
The International Symposium on Drought and Climate Change was organized within the framework of the NCN SHENG project HUMDROUGHT (humdrought.igf.edu.pl), by the Hohai University (China) and the Institute of Geophysics, ...
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 ...
