Aquatic Habitats in Sustainable Urban Water Management : Science, Policy and Practice by Iwona Wagner( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquatic habitats supply a wide range of vital ecosystem benefits to cities and their inhabitants. The unsustainable use of aquatic habitats, including inadequate urban water management, however, tends to alter and reduce their biodiversity and thereby diminish their ability to provide clean water, protect humans from waterborne diseases and pollutants, keep urban areas safe from flooding, and support recreational ecosystem services and even aesthetic enjoyment. This publication aims at improving understanding of aquatic habitats, related ecosystem goods and services, and conservation and sustainable use, with a special focus on their integration into urban water management.--Publisher's description

Evaluation et développement de la méthode IRIP de cartographie du ruissellement. Application au contexte ferroviaire by Lilly-Rose Lagadec( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le ruissellement pluvial est à l'origine de phénomènes violents tels que des inondations, de l'érosion ou des coulées de boue. Les voies ferrées interceptent les écoulements de surface, ce qui peut engendrer une dégradation précoce de l'infrastructure ou la destruction d'éléments, tels que la plateforme ou les talus. La méthode IRIP, « Indicateur de Ruissellement Intense Pluviale », permet de représenter le ruissellement en trois cartes, la production, le transfert et l'accumulation. La méthode IRIP se veut simple et robuste, pour un usage sur tous types de territoires et sans calage. Comme tout modèle de ruissellement, l'évaluation de la méthode IRIP se heurte au manque de données. Pourtant, l'évaluation est une étape cruciale dans le développement de modèles. Pour un usage opérationnel ou pour poursuivre les développements, il est nécessaire d'estimer la valeur et la fiabilité des informations produites. L'objectif de la thèse est donc de proposer une méthode d'évaluation de la méthode IRIP par comparaison à des données d'impacts sur les voies ferrées. La difficulté réside dans la différence de fond et de forme des données à comparer et dans la nécessité de prendre en compte la vulnérabilité de l'infrastructure. La méthode d'évaluation proposée est basée sur le calcul de tableaux de contingence et d'indicateurs de performance, couplé à des analyses détaillées d'incidents. Après une estimation de la performance de la méthode IRIP, des développements sont testés et évalués grâce à la méthode d'évaluation élaborée. La lisibilité des cartes est finalement améliorée, tout en gardant de bons scores de performance. En appliquant la méthode IRIP à des contextes opérationnels, il est montré en quoi IRIP peut être considéré comme un outil d'aide à l'expertise. Différentes tâches du processus de gestion des risques sont testées, telles que les diagnostics de risques sur les voies ferrées, les retours d'expérience post-évènement ou encore la réalisation de zonage règlementaire. De manière générale, cette thèse contribue à l'amélioration des connaissances sur le phénomène du ruissellement et propose des méthodes pour améliorer la gestion des risques liés au ruissellement
Aide à la calibration d'un modèle hydrologique distribué au moyen d'une analyse des processus hydrologiques : application au bassin versant de l'Yzeron = alibration of a distributed hydrological model using field knowledge : Application on the Yzeron catchment by Raouf Gnouma( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present work is a contribution to the recent research topics in hydrology devoted to the amelioration of hydrological modelling performance on the base of field knowledge. The study catchment is the Yzeron basin (A = 147,3 km²) located at the west of Lyon. Following a state of the art review concerning hydrological processes for runoff generation and distributed hydrological modelling, the WISTOO model was implemented in the Yzeron basin. This first work of modelling raised the different problems of the distributed hydrological modelling, already evoked in the literature, and stresses the importance of knowledge about the hydrological behaviour of the study catchment is necessary. In the second part of this work, a spatial analysis was carried out, using the different available thematic layers, leading to the selection of three representative sub-catchments. A field experimental approach has been conducted at two scales : catchment (runoff-rainfall analysis and geochemical tracing) and hillslope scale (piezometric level measurements). The geochemical tracing application has made it possible to propose some hypotheses on the hydrological behaviour of these entities. For a smaller scale approach, a set of piezometers have been installed on two hillslopes, which allowed monitoring of the piezometric level during some rainfall-runoff events. Association of two techniques (geochemical tracing and experimental investigation at the hillslope scale) and global rainfall-runoff analysis have finally permitted to improve our understanding of dominant hydrological processes associated to the representatives sub-catchments of Yzeron basin. A first tentative of integration of this knowledge in to the calibration process of WISTOO model constitutes the last chapter of this work

Écologie et dangerosité des Pseudomonas aeruginosa des milieux aquatiques anthropisés by Stéphanie Petit( )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Public Health, new monitoring and management programs are needed, especially for the aquatic environments strongly affected by urbanization and urban wet weather discharges. The levels, reservoirs and sources of microbiological contamination of the aquatic environment should be assessed and identified, and their impact on the spread of pathogenic bacteria and the risk of exposure of human populations understood. Among the pathogens found in water environments, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is of major health concern. From two experimental sites, the objectives of this work were to define the contribution of wastewater discharges on the prevalence of P. aeruginosa in receiving watercourses and study the ecology of the introduced forms, including their spatiotemporal dynamic and preferential habitats. Sediments, surface biofilms (periphyton) and the submerged aquatic vegetations appeared to favour the survival or growth of some genotypes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The distribution of fecal indicator bacteria and of Aeromonas caviae were also studied. It was highlighted that hydraulic forces, the morpho-dynamics of the river and the seasonal vaiations were determinant factors in the distribution of the analyzed microbial contaminants. The health hazard of the clones found in these systems was estimated through indirect molecular approaches. It was shown that all Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains had a high virulence potential and that some were related to the PA14 and C clones which are spread worldwide and pathogenic

Urban water cycle processes and interactions by J Marsalek( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Effective management of urban water should be based on a scientific understanding of the impact of human activity on both the urban hydrological cycle -- including its processes and interactions -- and the environment itself. Such anthropogenic impacts, which vary broadly in time and space, need to be quantified with respect to local climate, urban development, cultural, environmental and religious practices, and other socio-economic factors. This publication includes a concluding series of recommendations for effective urban water management summarizing the findings set forth here.--Publisher's description
