A methodological approach of climatological modelling of air temperature and precipitation through GIS techniques This study proposes an empirical methodology for modelling and mapping the air temperature (mean maximum, mean and mean minimum) and total precipitation, all of which are monthly and annual, using geographical information systems (GIS) techniques. The method can be seen as an alternative to classical interpolation techniques when spatial information is available. The geographical area used to develop and apply this model is Catalonia (32 000 km2, … Continue reading “Latest Research on GIS Techniques: April 2021”

Wave characteristic analysis and wave energy resource evaluation in the China Sea This study presents the characteristics of the China Sea wave energy resource and wave climate for the period August 1999 to July 2009, using a 10-yr hindcast wave data obtained from WAVEWATCH-III (WW3) numerical wave model forced with QuikSCAT/NCEP (QN) wind data. Results show that: (1) The China Sea wave field has significant seasonal differences, especially the South China Sea which is obviously affected by the monsoon. In … Continue reading “Latest Research on Wave Characteristic: Dec 2020”

A global boom in hydropower dam construction Human population growth, economic development, climate change, and the need to close the electricity access gap have stimulated the search for new sources of renewable energy. In response to this need, major new initiatives in hydropower development are now under way. At least 3,700 major dams, each with a capacity of more than 1 MW, are either planned or under construction, primarily in countries with emerging economies. These dams are predicted to increase … Continue reading “News Update on Dam Construction Research: Oct – 2019”

Measuring the total economic value of restoring ecosystem services in an impaired river basin: results from a contingent valuation survey Five system services that would be restored  on a 45-mile section of the Platte River were delineated  to respondents employing a building block approach developed by associate degree knowledge domain team. These system services were dilution of waste matter, natural purification of water, erosion management, surroundings for fish and life, and recreation. Households were asked a divided alternative temperament to … Continue reading “Latest Research on River Basin: Oct – 2019”

Biodiversity of floodplain river ecosystems: ecotones and connectivity1 A high level of spatio‐temporal heterogeneousness makes riverine floodplains among the foremost species‐rich environments known . stream dynamics from flooding play a serious role in maintaining a diversity of lentic, lotic and semi‐aquatic home ground varieties, every delineated  by a diversity of successional stages. Ecotones (transition zones between adjacent patches) and property (the strength of interactions across ecotones) area unit structural and useful parts that result from and contribute to the spatio‐temporal … Continue reading “Latest Research on Floodplain Research: Sep – 2019”
