Artificial neural network simulation of ground water levels in uplands of a coastal tropical riparian

  Wetlands play an important role in the ecological balance of the coastal region. Understanding groundwater level behaviour in uplands is important for the management and the development of coastal tropical riparian wetland. Artificial Neural Networks has proved to be robust techniques in modeling and prediction of hydrological processes. This paper presents the application of ANNs to model groundwater levels...

Impact of soil organic matter on the sorption and phase distribution of 20% butanol-blended gasoline in the vadose zone

  Batch microcosm experiments were conducted to examine the impact of soil organic matter (SOM) on the sorption and phase distribution of 20% butanol-blended gasoline (B20) compounds in the vadose zone. SOM was found to promote the sorption of B20 gasoline compounds in the vadose zone. It also affected the phase distribution of B20 gasoline compounds in the vadose zone by increasing adsorption on the soil solid...

Advancing stormwater management practice in Iran using water sensitive urban design approach

  More than 350 cities of Iran are subject to floods every year and flood phenomena cause annual 1,500,000,000,000 Rials loss to Iran. The reason for floods lie with lack of appropriate water management systems in terms of stormwater management. Current status of Iran water management calls for imitating the successful experience of other countries. The aim of this paper is to review better management...

Numerical simulation of groundwater of large-scale irrigation in Northern China: Case of Baoyang Irrigation Area, Shaanxi, China

  The numerical simulation of groundwater for the single aquifer layer system of Baoyang irrigation area was performed. Visual MODFLOW was carried out to estimate the sustainability of the groundwater resource and to delineate suitable plan for future groundwater use. The conceptual model was built by analyzing the hydrogeological data, aquifer properties, pumping wells, head observations; etc. A groundwater...

Spatial strategies for flood vulnerability analysis and long term scenario with geographic information system (GIS) in Sirajganj, Bangladesh

  Flood is a natural hazard resulting from extreme meteorological events which cause an unexpected threat to human lives and properties. Flood stems from the probability that a major hazard event will occur in a well-defined area and it will impacts negatively, in particular on the people and their welfare. Flood protection planning is a very important step which helps not only to rescue the people affected by...
