Some Plans to Reverse Climate Change Could Double Water Use

In recent research, noted in an article published by Jesse Kathan in the Eos Earth and Space Science Magazine on January 30 2020,  it has been noted that plans for full-scale negative emissions technologies can impact land, water and energy use on a global scale.

New Journals – Journal of American Water Resources Association

Happy to announce receipt of journals for February 2015, April 2015, June 2015 and August 2015 (a bit late but the information is still relevant) for the Journal of the American Water Resources Association.

A few of the topics discussed include stream restoration, water rights, spatial and temporal variability, stream temperature, water transfer, best management practices, atrazine concentration in surface water and databases.

To view any of these journals and the technical papers presented or their featured collections please email me or feel free to check me at my desk.

Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) December 2015

We have just received our print issue of the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) for December 2015 (Volume 51 No. 6).

This issue presents information on a wide variety of topics, which would be of interest to water resources professionals, including watershed yields, stream bacteria, water resources protection and sediment trends to name a few.

Persons wishing to view this issue can contact me via email or visit me at my desk.

Please note however, that the Journal of the American Water Resources Association which has been published bimonthly by the Wiley Subscription Services would be moving to  an online only version in 2016.

Therefore one can access the February 2016 issue at Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) February 2016.

Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Research Symposium Feedback

Well for many of you who were unable to attend the first annual IWRM research symposium, I must say that you missed out quite a bit.

As previously mentioned the symposium presented information under topics such as hydrology, meteorology, water and the environment, water quality, heath, water supply and water and governance. Thus, there was a wide scope of information ranging from topics such as rainwater harvesting, water quality in the Ortoire River, marine pollution, ambient water quality, water quality guidelines, water scarcity, water poverty index, to disaster preparedness, land use planning, freshwater quality and rainfall variability.

I must say I am very proud of my colleagues who presented, and I am looking forward to receiving the relevant documents to catalogue and to house them in the library.

The symposium was the perfect place to network and meet other persons in the field of water resources management, as well as, a means for knowledge sharing. One of the topics presented in the morning session on Thursday, was drought management, which highlighted the probability of drought in our country, as well as, means through which it can be effectively managed. Thus, I hope you all can see the importance of  my previous post on drought management in Australia from the World Meteorological Organization and why we should all be sourcing reliable information on the topic.

I was also very pleased to get some documents from the Global Water Partnership Carribbean (GWP-C). I will update you on these as soon as they are catalogued and added to the libraries collection in a later post. For persons interested in sourcing information on the IWRM  research symposium such as the book of abstracts, the agenda, the Adopt a River booklet, as well as, the National Integrated Water Resources Management policy (2005), available both in digital and print, by the Water Resources Management Unit of the Ministry of Public Utilities and the Environment, you can either send me an email or pass by my desk.

Open Access (International Association of Hydrological Sciences)

Hey guys as you may know, we are expecting a 2015 subscription for the Hydrological Sciences Journal published by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

Due to assistance from one of our colleagues, I have been made aware of an open access publication to refereed proceedings in hydrology provided by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences. Thus one can easily access abstracts and PDFs.

Thus one can access articles in relation to hydrology from 2014 to 2015. Topics on which information is provided include hydrologic models, flood risks, remote sensing and GIS, water scarcity, sedimentation, climate change and land use to name a few.
