The need for hydrological research, basic as well as applied, is substantial to help rationally manage the world’s water resources. To satisfy this need, and the interest of Member States, UNESCO, in 1975, launched a long-term intergovernmental programme, ...
The main purpose of the reports is to provide comprehensive descriptions of the state of the art of decision analysis and sampling strategies for contaminated land. The reports form an important basis for future work, not only in the specific project, but ...
Urban karst systems are typically considered more vulnerable to contaminationand excess storm discharge because of potential sources areas, increased sedimentloading, and focusing of water from impervious surfaces.
