Computational Modeling for the Development of Sustainable Water-Resources Systems in Poland. US-Poland Technology Transfer Program
Editor(s): Altinakar M., Czernuszenko W., Rowiński P., Wang S.
World peace can be better sustained with the accelerated transfer of technology - has been a belief at NATO, US Congress and the National Center for Hydroscience and Engineering (NCCHE) since the mid 1990's. With the support and funding from the US Congress, the NCCHE has been planning to transfer the state-of-the-art research and management tools, computational models, in the areas of water resources and environmental engineering to foreign countries. The objective of the project is to assist the researchers and engineers in those countries who plan tro speed up the development of their water resources and the improvement of their environmental quality, which shall result in the enhancement of their people's living standard, as well as desire for peace.
Potential Climate Changes and Sustainable Water Management
Editor(s): Liszewska M.
In recent years it has become obvious that operational use of natural resources assuming their stationarity represents too narrow view of this complex issue. A change of paradigm seems to be developing, the two main principles of which are: the increased role of geo-sciences in assessing non-stationarity of resources potential, and postulate for their sustainable exploitation in the face of global change. Sustainability criteria provide a framework for prioritising competing interests and for making decision about safe and stable use of resources.
Modelling and Control of Floods
Editor(s): Napiórkowski J.
The great floods that affected a number of regions in recent years have attracted a great deal of attention throughout the world. When looking at our Polish experience, it is obvious that flooding is responsible for a great number of damaging events than most other types of natural disasters. Therefore, intensification of the studies of various aspects of flood problems is a must and is challenging not only for a scientific community but also for decision makers at both local and state levels.
Water Quality Issues in the Upper Narew Valley
Editor(s): Rowiński P., Napiórkowski J.
This book contains contributions by the leading experts dealing with general aspects of water quality in rivers and also specialists focusing their efforts in the Upper Narew Valley. A variety of scientifically based - experimental, computational and theoretical, and also policy-oriented topics are contained herein. A large number of the contributions have been presented during the meeting held in Hotel Leśny in Białystok on July 11, 2000. The main topic embraced sources of pollution and transport processes influencing water quality in the Upper Narew Valley. The Conference was organized by the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Narew National Park and North Podlasie Society of Bird Protection. It was sponsored by the Sendzimir Foundation and the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
