  • The overall goal of this procedure is to provide a novel method for capturing in situ composite flow-weighted farm canal discharge water and suspended particulates during drainage events for their physical chemical characterization. (jove.com)
  • To capture suspended particulates, position two, 200 liter PVC settling tanks a few feet from the datalogger to collect farm canal discharge water over the duration of the drainage period. (jove.com)
  • Being aware of the danger of AMD to the environment, mitigation options could be used to prevent the contamination of streams, rivers and lakes by effluent discharge from the mines or to treat the contaminated water. (scielo.org.za)
  • It was jointly organized by TU Dresden and Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) - which together form the Center of Advanced Water Research (CAWR)- in cooperation with the Purdue University and University of Florida. (ufz.de)

  • Consequently, to determine the possibilities to combine re-naturalization processes in channels with their function-ability it was examined the tendencies of woody vegetation (WV) spreading and the hydraulic calculation formulas estimating the performance of overgrown channels as water recipients were suggested.

  • Consequently, to determine the possibilities to combine re-naturalization processes in channels with their function-ability it was examined the tendencies of woody vegetation (WV) spreading and the hydraulic calculation formulas estimating the performance of overgrown channels as water recipients were suggested.As the study results showed, self-restoration of WV was most progressive in forest and outskirt channels.

  • Complex interactions between water, society, the economy, and the environment necessitate attention to how water issues are framed, and the limitations of a water-centric framework for analyzing or solving problems. (frontiersin.org)
  • Using the nuances of drainage as an exemplar, we discuss how fragmented framings of water foster perspectives and solutions that fail to consider the full range of aspects and interactions, and contribute to the enduring conflicts that accompany drainage debates in many regions. (frontiersin.org)

  • We experimentally study the drainage dynamics and the equilibrium state of an oil droplet surrounded by brine pressed against a glass substrate. (aps.org)
  • The originality of our results relies on the derivation of simple analytical laws quantitatively describing the drainage dynamics and providing tools to uncouple the effect of the film geometry from the effects of disjoining or capillary pressures. (aps.org)

  • ICMASAWD 2020 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Model Application for Sustainable Agricultural Water and Drainage . (waset.org)
  • The formulas estimating conductivity of overgrown channels are based on the balance of forces occurring on the boundaries of overgrown strips of a stream: resistance of tree stems, friction on the slopes, shear stresses that appear when two streams with different velocities are in contact and the horizontal component of the gravity force causing water movement. (iwaponline.com)
  • Labeling these features as "channels" rather than "streams" indicates that there need not be a continuous flow of water to capture the behavior of this region as a conduit of water. (wikipedia.org)
