Project Management


Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, securing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. It is sometimes conflated with program management, however technically that is actually a higher level construction: a group of related and somehow interdependent engineering projects.

By: Global Promotion and Cooperation for Water Supply and Sanitation

Medical Reference Publication

FOREWORD A World Health Organization Consultation on the implications of the first three years of the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IWDSSD) was held in Geneva from 25 June to 2 July 1984. Its aim was to review progress, to re-examine the concepts of the Decade, to identify major constraints, and to recommend actions which might help to accelerate development of the water supply and sanitation sector. This booklet outlines the major conclusion...

Description: Biogeochemistry Research Group, Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, Celsiusstrasse 1, 28359 Bremen, Germany. Cold-water coral ecosystems are considered hot-spots of biodiversity and biomass production and may be a regionally important contributor to carbonate production. The impact of these ecosystems on biogeochemical processes and carbonate preservation in associated sediments were studied at Røst Reef and Traenadjupet Reef, two modern (post-...

Modelling Water Availability, Sediment Export and Reservoir Sedime...

By: T. Francke; A. Güntner; E. N. Mueller; G. Mamede

Description: Institute of Geoecology, University of Potsdam, Potsdam, Germany. The process-based, spatially semi-distributed modelling framework WASA-SED for water and sediment transport in large dryland catchments is presented. The WASA-SED model simulates the runoff and erosion processes at the hillslope scale, the transport processes of suspended and bedload fluxes in the river reaches and the retention and remobilisation processes of sediments in reservoirs. The...

Regional Flow Duration Curves for Ungauged Sites in Sicily : Volum...

By: G. La Loggia; L. V. Noto; M. Cannarozzo; F. Viola

Description: Dipartimento d'Ingegneria Idraulica ed Applicazioni Ambientali, Università degli Studi di Palermo, Palermo, Italia. Flow duration curves are simple and powerful tools to deal with many hydrological and environmental problems related to water quality assessment, water-use assessment and water allocation. Unfortunately the scarcity of streamflow data enables the use of these instruments only for gauged basins. A regional model is developed here for estimat...

Description: Models and Consultative Services, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, 134 Heatherside Drive, Toronto, Ontario, M1W 1T9, Canada. The linear unit hydrograph used in hydrologic design analysis and flood forecasting is known as the transfer function and the kernel function in time series analysis and systems theory, respectively. This paper reviews the use of an input-dependent or variable kernel in a linear convolution integral as a quasi-nonlinear appro...

By: J. S. Kemerink; L. Brandimarte; M. Kooy; G. Di Baldassarre

Description: UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, Delft, the Netherlands. This paper offers a conceptual approach to explore the complex dynamics of floodplains as fully coupled human-water systems. A number of hydrologists have recently investigated the impact of human activities (such as flood control measures, land-use changes, and settlement patterns) on the frequency and severity of floods. Meanwhile, social scientists have shown how interactions between s...

Description: Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong, China. This study explores the teleconnection of two climatic patterns, namely the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD), with hydrological processes over the Pearl River basin in southern China, particularly on a sub-basin-scale basis. The Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model is used to simulate the daily hydrological processes over t...
