Socio-economic processes and climate change impact the socio-hydrology of many small towns in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH), such as Leh in Ladakh. The rapidly urbanising town experienced a shift from agricultural livelihoods towards incomes mainly relying on the tourism sector. As results of this research show, the limited water resources essential to the everyday life of urban citizens have become increasingly important for the tourism sector and the urbanisation process. This study aims to un...

The Konin lakes, heated by power stations and invaded by alien organisms, are a natural laboratory in which we can study the impact of climate change on the native communities of aquatic organisms. The aim of our study was to assess the impact of water heating and the occupation of the littoral zone of the lake by invasive species Vallisneria spiralis on changes in the species structure of rotifer communities of plankton, epiphyton and psammon. The archival material was used from the years: 1970...

The data on the metal contents and acidification of small lakes caused by airborne contamination of the watershed in three industrial regions of the Arctic—European Russia (Kola region), Western (Yamal-Nenets region) and Eastern Siberia (Norilsk region)—have been presented for the first time. It has been proven that acidification and enrichment by metals of water connect with sulfur dioxide and metals emissions from copper–nickel smelters, contaminating the catchments, with associated gas burnin...

Lake Zirahuen is one of the ecologically better preserved and small-sized lakes in Mexico. Observations revealed that Lake Zirahuen is subjected to a consistent diurnal wind because of the presence of a valley–mountain breeze that triggers semidiurnal and 3–8 h variability oscillations, with the latter among the natural frequencies of the lake, whereas the former and the principal forcing are in near resonance with the second vertical mode. The thermodynamic variability was greater in the metali...

This article explores the water policy narrative in Pakistan, and identifies its historical trajectories and influences, as well as the impact of the global agenda setting of water for 2030. For this purpose, water sector reforms in Pakistan are examined as a case study. The National Water Policy (NWP) 2018 and Participatory Irrigation Management (PIM) reforms are critically evaluated and loopholes identified, in terms of both theoretical aspects and constraints in their practical implementation...
The Jingjiang Sandbank (JJS) is located on the bank of the tidal reach in the Yangtze River. It experiences a periodic evolution process of increase, split, migration, and dissipation, which affects the current direction, fish habitat, navigation safety, etc. In this paper, the periodic evolution of the JJS is investigated based on 17 field bathymetric measurements of the river from 1999 to 2017. Firstly, six cycles of the evolution process of the sandbank are described, and the evolution patter...

The aim of this study was to predict the residual adsorbable organic halides (AOX) concentration in an industrial wastewater using conventional, easy-to-measure wastewater parameters. In a pilot test unit, the wastewater was subjected to ozonation at various intensities, resulting in an AOX-removal and hence varying AOX concentrations. In first instance, the parameters used for modeling were selected using Pearson and Spearman correlations. Secondly, multiple linear regression (MLR) was used as ...

Measurements for determining the effect of chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT) on the efficiency of pollutant removal from wastewater were carried out using conventional inorganic coagulants PIX113 with polymer A110 (Kemipol, Police, Poland) and unconventional cationic organic coagulants Cofloc (Attana, Coalville, UK) C29510 (Kemipol, Police, Poland) and Sedifloc 575 (3F Chimica, Sandrigo, Italy). The average removal efficiency in the 2-hour sedimentation process was 46%, 34%, 8%, 12% f...
At a former Danish polluted landfill, a field experiment using biofilters as an ex-situ remediation strategy for leachate water was carried out. The leachate water was polluted with phenoxy acids, mecoprop, dichlorprop, and their impurities originated from previous years of disposal of production wastes. Three individual biofilters were set up and each was filled with different a support material, e.g., sand, stonewool, and peat amended sand. The sand biofilter was spiked with ammonium acetate i...
