Recasting Catchment Water Balance for Water Allocation Between Hum...

By: Y. Wei; G. Wang; Y. Huang; S. Zhou

Description: State Key Laboratory of Hydroscience and Engineering, Department of Hydraulic Engineering, Tsinghua University, Beijing, 100084, China. Rebalancing water allocation between human consumptive uses and the environment in water catchments is a global challenge. The conventional water balance approach which partitions precipitation into evapotranspiration (ET) and surface runoff supports the optimization of water allocations among different human water u...

By: Y. Arnaud; B. Ahmad; A. A. Tahir; P. Chevallier

Description: Laboratoire Hydrosciences (CNRS, IRD, Montpellier University 1&2), CC57, Université Montpellier 2, 34095 Montpellier Cedex 5, France. A major proportion of flow in the Indus River is contributed by its snow- and glacier-fed river catchments situated in the Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindukush ranges. It is therefore essential to understand the cryosphere dynamics in this area for water resource management. The MODIS MOD10A2 remote-sensing database of snow c...

A Priori Sensitivity Analysis for Densification Gps Networks and T...

By: H. Konak; P. Küreç

Description: Department of Surveying Engineering, Kocaeli, Turkey. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the possibilities of monitoring crustal movement, during collective evaluation of first- and second-order GPS densification networks. The new criteria, which are independent from the network datum, are widely used for the evaluation and quality processing of geodetic networks. In this study, the values of detectable minimum displacement for a real GPS ...

Description: School of Natural Resources, University of Nebraska – Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska 68583, USA. Snow surface temperature is a key control on and result of dynamically coupled energy exchanges at the snow surface. The snow surface temperature is the result of the balance between external forcing (incoming radiation) and energy exchanges above the surface that depend on surface temperature (outgoing longwave radiation and turbulent fluxes) and the transport o...

Shahrazad continued, It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that Sa?adan having broken into the palace of King Jamak and pounded to pieces those therein, the survivors cried out, ?Quarter! Quarter!;? and Sa?adan said to them, ?Pinion your King!? So they bound Jamak and took him up, and Sa?adan drove them before him like sheep and brought them to Gharib?s presence, after the most part of the citizens had perished by the enemy?s swords.
