Book Description. With Africa's water resources constantly threatened by an increasing population and the resultant rise in water demand, together with the stresses of water use for various activities, desertification, climate change, and other interventions in the water cycle by man, it is vital that the water resources in arid and semi-arid regions are developed and managed in a sustainable.

Presenting chapters from contributors to the Global network for Water and Development Information for arid lands (GWADI) workshop, this book discusses hydrological modelling tools required for water management in arid and semi-arid regions. It is a valuable reference for researchers and engineers working on the water resources of these : Hardcover.

Arid and semi-arid regions face major challenges in the management of scarce freshwater resources under pressures of population, economic development, climate change, pollution and over-abstraction. Groundwater is commonly the most important water resource in these areas.

The results of his research and other work experience have had a measurable impact on policy development, improving water use efficiency, water quality and environmental quality in Size: 1MB.

Glacial Resources. Water being an essential commodity especially in arid and semi arid areas, any source of water for example permanent snow and/or glaciers are suppose to be captured and preserved within the available mountains in the regions that experiences aridity so as to regulate run off.

It gathers outstanding contributions presented at the International Water Conference on Water Resources in Arid Areas (IWC ), which was held in Muscat, Oman in March The individual papers discuss challenges and solutions to alleviate water resource scarcity in arid areas, including water resources management, the introduction of modern.

Introduction. Arid areas of the world are faced with a problem of access to fresh water for human, domestic and industrial use. Most people living in arid areas are not able to access fresh water for their consumption (Chester,p). The arid and semi-arid areas of the globe are expected to be particularly affected by changing water availability.

Consequently, advances in ecohydrology sciences (i.e., the interplay between ecological and hydrological processes) are necessary to enhance the understanding of the critical zone hydrology, to optimize water resources usage in. The 2nd International conference on Water Resources in Arid Areas (WRAA) will be held on September (postponed, owing to COVID) at Sultan Qaboos University in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.

Both oral and poster presentations will be held during the conference. Submission of abstracts and papers can be done through links on conference. This book examines the possible impacts of climate change on hydrology and water resources in the vast arid region of Northwest China, which is one of the world’s largest arid places.

The first chapter offers an introductory discussion of the physical geography and socioeconomic conditions in the region.

semi-arid, (iii) arid and (iv) hyper arid (Figure 2). This categorization is based on an Aridity Index (AI), which is calculated by dividing the mean precipitation by the potential evapotranspiration.

Groundwater is commonly the most important water resource in these areas. Groundwater models are widely used globally to understand groundwater systems and to guide decisions on management.

Arid and semi-arid regions are defined as areas where water is at its most scarce. The hydrological regime in these areas is extreme and highly variable, and they face great pressures to deliver and manage freshwater resources.

As a result of the ever-growing global population, pressure on water resources is increasing continuously, above all in arid and semi-arid regions. Excellent papers () will be selected by conference editors and published as two special issues in Journal of Arid Land (JAL) ( Impact Factor: ) and Earth Systems and Environment (Indexed in Scopus since June ).

Water resources are natural resources of water that are potentially useful. Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities. All living things require water to grow and reproduce.

97% of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps. This book provides comprehensive information about the water resources of the Arabian Gulf region, an area that is symbolic as an arid to extremely arid belt.

Filling an information gap it provides in-depth analyses of both natural and human-related constraints on water resources, and presents a new vision on efficient management of available. From the reviews: “This book focuses on the technologies available to assess, manage, and develop water resources in arid regions worldwide.

The book highlights the problems with past management methods and offers new solutions that take a holistic approach by recognizing and considering economic, sociocultural, and political issues.

Sustainable groundwater resources management in arid areas requires early and immediate action to prevent further negative impacts on these resources. The persistent decline in the quantity and quality of groundwater in many countries has been leading to severe challenges in the present and future.
