Ecological Effects of Water-level Fluctuations in Lakes (Developments in Hydrobiology)

So much aquatic ecosystems have variable water degrees. those water-level fluctuations (WLF) have a number of results at the organisms above and under the waterline. typical WLF styles in lakes warrantly either productiveness and biodiversity, whereas premature floods and droughts can have unwanted effects. Human affects on WLF have resulted in a stabilization of the water degrees of many lakes via hydraulic legislation, premature drawdown because of water use, or floods because of water unencumber from hydropower crops within the catchments.

Wassertechnologie: Fällung · Flockung · Separation

Fallung, Flockung und die dazugehorige Abtrennung sind "Arbeitspferde' der Wasseraufbereitung, ebenso wie die mechanisch-biologische Behandlung das wichtigste Grundverfahren der Abwasserreinigung ist. Mit zunehmender In tensivierung der Wassernutzung und der sich ergebenden Verkiirzung des natiirlichen Wasserkreislaufes verlieren sich die Unterschiede zwischen Wasser aufbereitung und Wasserreinigung mehr und mehr.

Sample text

Some of the water used for drilling, which is pumped down the hole through the drill pipe to remove the cuttings, found it easier to move out into the formation than to flow back up the hole. The remark is a good indication of a permeability that is higher than that present in those sections where water was not being lost.

On the other hand, water as an agent of transportation will vary in both volume and velocity, which is climate dependent, and this will leave an imprint on the sediments. It is to be expected that stream related material, which most unconsolidated material is, will be variable in extent, thickness, and grain size. Other than this, one can draw no general guidelines; therefore, it is essential to develop some knowledge of the resulting stratigraphy that is characteristic of the most common environments of deposition.
