Improving Water Resources Management from the Ground Up

We all know the significance of gathering data for the effective running of our organization. Such data is ensured by acquiring reliable rain and stream flow gauges. In her article below Sarah Witman discusses guidelines put forward by the World Meteorological Organization, as well as, a recent study by Keum and Coulibaly, which has expanded on such guidelines to assist persons on determining optimal locations for such gauges and how to better understand information from stream gauges.

Professional Enhancement Programs

Regardless of our  present qualifications, it is always a good idea to seek the means to improve our skills within our quickly changing work environment. For example, with the advancement of new technology, it is better to learn how to improve one’s proficiency rather than being unwilling to learn new skills. However, learning new skills does not only revolve around technology but also various aspects within one’s job specifications such as technical writing, or conflict resolution. I have outlined a few enhancement courses below for those of you interested in learning something new or looking to update your knowledge base.

Air Quality Management – Wiley

I remember when I had done a natural sciences course, how dire the outlook, in terms of, water resources and the environmental sustainability looked. I am sure that if many of my classmates hadn’t thought about the environment and its relation to their survival and that of the next generation, it definitely would have been thought of then and afterwards.

At the Wiley Online Library I came across a text entitled “Air Quality Management” (March, 2014), which is one of four texts to assist readers in developing Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs).

This document offers one an introduction to the atmosphere around us and the units of concentration. It also discusses the importance of meteorology and the part it plays in air quality, before detailing the main types of air pollutants, their sources, and their effects on humans and their environments. Further chapters discuss measurement technologies and systems, as well as a selection of control and elimination methods. The book also details methods of modelling atmospheric dispersion.
