SOIL AS A NATURAL RAINGAUGE: ESTIMATING GLOBAL RAINFALL FROM SATELLITE SOIL MOISTURE DATA

Submitted by Cesar CARMONA-MORENO on 30 April, 2014 - 17:54

Measuring precipitation intensity is not straightforward and over many areas, ground observations are lacking and satellite observations are used to fill this gap. The most common way of retrieving rainfall is by addressing the problem "top-down" by inverting the atmospheric signals reflected or radiated by atmospheric hydrometeors. However, most applications are interested in how much water reaches the ground, a problem that is notoriously difficult to solve from a "top down" perspective.

World Water Development Report 2014, Water and Energy

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 3 April, 2014 - 12:37
 

In view of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, likely to include increased access to water and energy services, this fifth edition of the United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR 2014) seeks to inform decision-makers (inside and outside the water and energy domains), stakeholders and practitioners about the interlinkages, potential synergies and trade-offs, and to highlight the need for appropriate responses and regulatory frameworks that account for both water and energy priorities.

Review: Water quality assessment of bioenergy production

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 5 March, 2014 - 13:05
Abstract: Water quality is a measurement of the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of water against certain standards set to ensure ecological and/or human health. Biomass production and conversion to fuels and electricity can impact water quality in lakes, rivers, and aquifers with consequences for aquatic ecosystem health and also human water uses. Depending on how the bioenergy system is located and managed, it can lead to both water quality deterioration and to improvements.
