Economic Assessment of Infrastructural Development for the Gurara River in Nigeria
Based on the preliminary designs of the hydraulic structures for the proposed Gurara river water development project in Nigeria, an economic feasibility analysis is presented. The cost...

Water Quality of Jubba River in Somalia
Monitoring of water quality in the Jubba River in Somalia of East Africa, led to indications of a potential impact of toxic trace elements, salinity and biocides in restricting agricultural...

Environmental Aspects of Water Resources Development
Long-term management of resources requires a comprehensive anlysis of the effects that development and management of one resource may be expected to exert upon other resources. However,...

Annual Flow Variations in the Nile River System
The annual flow series of the Nile River System at some key gauging stations for the period 1912-1988 are presented and discussed. The relatively stable period, pre-1961, has helped establish...

Drought Risk Analysis Based on Hydrologic Records of the River Nile
The characteristics of the parameters of hydrologic droughts are studied by analysing and modeling the maximum and 'minimum' stage-level series of the River Nile...

Land Use Change and Soil Erosion Hazard in the Zambezi Basin
An experimental model for estimating soil erosion hazard in southern Africa (SLEMSA) was linked to a raster based Geographical Information System. Soil erosion hazard maps were constructed...

Modelling of Stages of Nile River as a Tool for a Better Water Resources Management
As far as Egypt is concerned, the Nile is not just a river, it is rather the pulsing nerve of life. Consequently, it was essential to maintain detailed information about its levels and...

An Advectively Sustained Thermocline on the Agulhas Bank

Recent Developments in the Oil Spill Response, Arrangements in Four Mediterranean Countries: The Cases of Spain, Italy, Libya and Egypt

Watershed Modeling of The Western Coast Wadis of Egypt
The main goal of this paper is to present the water resources assessment from both surface and ground-water resvoirs of the western coast watersheds in Egypt. Two submodels were used for...

Towards a Rainfall Estimation Using Meteosat Over Africa
The scope of the research is to develop a method of rainfall estimation at both small space and time scales (9 pixels -225 km2-, and single shower...

Extraordinary Floods in Arid South Africa
South Africa, a country where 65% of the area receives less than 500 mm of rain annually, has experienced many major floods during the last century. The importance, aim and scope of the...

Coastal Zone Resources Management Profile for West Africa

Erosion Management Strategies for the Mahin Mud Beach Ondo State, Nigeria

Input Management: A Proposal for the Largest Coastal Lagoon in Brazil
Principles of General System Theory and Energy Analysis are used to study the best management technique al Lagoa dos Patos (in southern Brazil), including its watershed and contiguous...

Mathematical Modeling of Water Balance in a Well Defined Pilot Area
This study developed a water balancing computer code, a type of book keeping method using a detailed version of the hydrologic balance equation. The purpose was to provide a method of...

Beach Erosion Protection Methods: Case Study of Dar City Tanzania
Coastal Tanzania has been experiencing severe beach erosion. Beach erosion is much felt in coastal cities like Dar es Salaam, Tanga etc. Beach erosion in Dar es Salaam has caused damage...

Hydraulic Transient Analysis of High-Head Hydropower Project
An iterative computer simulation procedure called LIQT (Liquid Transient), which performs simulations of hydraulic transients in closed conduit hydro-power systems, is used to estimate...

Physical Modeling of Heated Discharges into a Stagnant River
An alternative cooling system study was performed for the Damietta Combined Cycle Plant in Egypt. The alternatives included spray canals, helper cooling tower and once-through cooling....
