Current commitments on greenhouse gas emissions run out in 2020, so at Paris governments are expected to produce an agreement on what happens for the decade after that at least, and potentially beyond.
Why is this important?
Scientists have warned that if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, we will pass the threshold beyond which…
The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre is hereby accepting expressions of interest to make a presentation at the Caribbean Pavilion at the UNFCCC COP21 being held in Paris, France during the period: Monday 30th November to Friday 11th December 2015.
This journal contains 379 pages and presents articles on topics such as climate change risks and water management; future water stress; modelling regional impacts and water resources; peak discharge estimation; surface soil water content; hydrological trends; salt intrusion model in Malaysia; water yield effects; land surface temperature; index-flood model; sediment transfer; artificial recharge by floodwater and transient phreatic surface mound.

This journal presents articles and case studies on a wide variety of topics which include bias compensation in flood frequency; hydrograph evaluation; catchment behaviour, rainfall selection and flash flood; data series interpolation; runoff of climate change; runoff and water temperature; global hdrological models; current trends in climate parameters; curve number adjustment; modelling climate and land-use; sewer overflow; groundwater depletion; water balance; source identification and water storage.
This journal contains a special issue of Evaluating Water Resources with SWAT, as well as, articles and case studies on topics such as advances in water resources assessment; spatial-analysis of SWAT; modelling spatial distribution; agricultural management and SWAT model; SWAT sub-field investigation; surface water-groundwater model; climate change impacts; water inflow and a coastal lagoon; calibrated parameter sets; flood peaks and volumes; seasonal climate patterns; continuous streamflow simulation; monitoring acidic water; parameter uncertainty and sensitivity analysis; new fuzzy linear regression; predicting daily pan evaporation; saturated hydraulic conductivity and LISEM and seasonal and inter-annual variability.
This journal contains a special issue on “Modelling Temporally-variable Catchments”, as well as, articles and case studies on various topics which include hydrological models and changing conditions; hydrological models and changing catchments; comparative assessment of AWBM and SimHyd; hydrological impact and forest fire; wildfire impact and runoff; ECOMAG model; temporal variability and catchment response; HBV model and parametric uncertainty; model performance and parameter variability; current runoff variations; bushfire and climate variability; kinematic wave-based hydrological model; COSERO precipitation-runoff model; graphical tools and catchment behaviour; parameter transferability and changing climate; flood estimation and hydrological modelling and temporally-variable catchments.
For those of you interested in taking a closer look at our new journal acquisitions, please feel free to email me or drop by my desk. 🙂
Please be reminded that articles are also available at Taylor and Francis Online, till December 31 2015 for which you would require a username and password which I would provide you with.
I am happy to announce that the financial department has finally paid our journal subscription to the Hydrological Sciences Journal. Does anyone else feel like doing a happy dance? Oh well, I am doing mine now, in my head though. 🙂
This subscription would be for print journals, together with online access. Although, our subscription period is for January 1 2015 – December 31, 2015, our online access would be expiring on the December 31, 2015.
All articles that would be available would be highlighted free access in green, while payment would have to be made to acquire those that we do not have access to.
In order to access articles you can simply use the search term Hydrological Sciences Journal and all data for 2015 would be accessible. Due to our late payment, I must remind you that such access, is only available till the end of the year, i.e. December 31, 2015, so please take the opportunity to access the relevant information in the time we have left.
In order to get the username and password, please email me for details or visit me at my desk for a demonstration, in terms of accessing the online portal.
Thank you so much for your patience and do enjoy. 🙂
A perfect example to show that data is very important to alleviating environmental impacts, which was discussed as a possibility in a previous post. In this instance, data is looked at in terms of marine resources and coastal management.

People have the power to improve our ocean resources. Understanding the current health of these resources and the needs of those who use them is the first step toward making decisions that protect them for the future.
Last week in St. Kitts and Nevis, marine biologists, fisheries officers, scientists and natural resource managers from the Eastern Caribbean attended a workshop on marine, socio-economic and management effectiveness data collection methods. Representatives contributed to drafts of their country’s first ever Coral Reef Report Card, which will guide an understanding of the overall health of marine areas and help leaders develop strategies to protect them.
