The problem of water scarcity and clean water in sub-Saharan Africa is a growing concern. This study aims to
quantify the water quality on a temporal scale in the Doorndraai dam site in sub-Saharan Africa to design
possible management options. Here, an integrated approach using both in-situ measurements of water quality
parameters and remote...

The water balance in six selected crops (mung beans, tomatoes, maize, cassava, yam, and sweet potatoes) was determined at the field block scale in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta for two agricultural growing areas. A novel approach for the calculation of water balance was employed, which combined the reference crop evapotranspiration (ETo), derived...

Although environmental sustainability provides a foundation for maintaining economic and social sustainability, it is often neglected in favor of economic sustainability. Ameliorating water impairment is costly, and policymakers do not always prioritize this problem because its economic benefits are often intangible. This study explored the...

A common phenomenon associated with alluvial rivers is their meander evolution, eventually
forming cutoffs. Point bar deposits and ox-bow lakes are the products of lateral bend
migration and meander cutoff. The present study focuses on identifying the meanders of
River Manu and their cutoffs. Moreover, this study compares the temporal evolution...

River meandering and anabranching have become major problems in many large rivers that carry significant amounts of sediment worldwide. The morphodynamics of these rivers are complex due to the temporal variation of flows. However, the availability of remote sensing data and geographic information systems (GISs) provides the opportunity to analyze...

In this paper, the quality of a source of drinking water is assessed by measuring eight water quality (WQ) parameters using 710 samples collected from a water-stressed region of India, Jodhpur Rajasthan. The entire sample was divided into ten groups representing different geographic locations. Using American Public Health Association (APHA)...
