  1. Marco legislativo para la gestión de sedimentos en los Estados Unidos

    Garcia-Chevesich, P. A.; Jones, S. L.; Daniels, J. M.; Valdés-Pineda, R.; Venegas-Quiñones, H.; Pizarro, R.
    [EN] Sediment erosion is a serious issue, with approximately 75 billion tons of soil is eroded annually around the world (Pimentel and Kounang, 1998). Although erosion is a natural process, it can accelerate due to human activity and land use changes. Increasing soil erosion beyond its natural threshold can result in significant environmental degradation and decreased economic productivity. Implementing sediment management laws and practices is critical to significantly decrease soil erosion and preserve environmental resources. In the United States, there is a comprehensive system of laws and regulations at national, state, county, and city level that govern erosion and sediment...

  4. Análisis regional de frecuencia de avenidas en la vertiente cantábrica y noratlántica de España

    Montes, J.; Álvarez, M.; Pertierra, L.; Moralo, J.; Baztán, J.
    [EN] This paper presents a study of regional frequency analysis of peak flows in Cantabrian and North Atlantic basins of Spain, based on the index-flood procedure with estimated parameters by L-moments approach (Hosking and Wallis, 1997). Observed annual maximum flow series of 85 gauged catchment areas in natural regime with records from 15 to 72 years were analyzed. The discordancy and heterogeneity measures based on the L-moments suggest 9 statistical homogeneous regions in which the same frequency distribution function is shared except for a scale factor. The main contribution of the study is the distinction of the regions according to...

  5. Tendencias de la precipitación y su relación con el Índice Oceánico El Niño. El caso de la Región Mixteca, México

    Martínez-Austria, P. F.; Díaz-Jiménez, D.
    [EN] The occurrence of droughts is a permanent concern in arid and semi-arid zones, especially for socially vulnerable ones such as the Mixteca Region in Mexico, a condition that can be aggravated as climate change scenarios predicts. The general circulation models do not allow forecasting precipitation conditions at regional scales, so it is necessary to study local climate behavior and trends. Determining the relationship between local climate and large-scale phenomena, such as El Niño / La Niña events, is relevant to set up prevention measures. This article analyzes the precipitation trends in the Mixteca Region of Mexico, determines the presence...

  6. Plan de seguridad del agua en los Campos de Refugiados Saharauis en Tindouf (Argelia)

    García, R.; Blanco, R.; Anta, J.; Naves, A.; Molinero, J.
    [EN] Since 1975, about 165,000 people from Western Sahara are living as refugees in the Sahara Desert near Tindouf (Algeria). Available water resources come from deep boreholes located up to tens of kilometers away from the settlements of the population, bulk water is treated in reverse osmosis plants and by chlorination systems and, after, distributed through a network of taps and water tankers. Water supply system complexity and extreme conditions force the elaboration of a Water Safety Plan, aiming to guarantee appropriate provision and quality of water. The plan follows a risk assessment methodology and establishes control mechanisms to minimize...

  8. Análisis implícito del flujo transitorio de agua con aire disuelto

    Twyman, J.
    [EN] The implicit finite-difference method (IFDM) for solving a system that transports water with dissolved air using a fixed (or variable) rectangular space-time mesh defined by the specified time step method is applied. The air content in the fluid modifies both the wave speed and the Courant number, which makes it inconvenient to apply the traditional Method of Characteristics (MOC) and other explicit schemes due to their impossibility to simulate the changes in magnitude, shape and frequency of the pressures train. The conclusion is that the IFDM delivers an accurate and stable solution, with a good adjustment level with respect...

  10. Determinación de la inundación en tramos de ríos afectados por marea basada en la simulación continua de nivel

    Sopelana, J.; Cea, L.; Ruano, S.
    [EN] The hydrodynamics of coastal river reaches is complex due to the interaction of several sources of flooding as the astronomical tide, surge, wave set-up and river discharge. The tidal level might affect several km of river reach. In those reaches, the same inundation water level can result from different combinations of the sea level ad river discharge. At the present time, most flood inundation studies in tidal river reaches are based in the application of an arbitrary sea level at the downstream river boundary, without considering the interaction and possible correlations between sea level and river discharge. In Spain,...

The present research develops a methodology to compare the energy footprint of water (EWF) through an energy balance with different RQs. The aim is to determine the energy behaviour of a network based on RQ value. The study analyses four networks (two drinking and two irrigation networks), showing a lower total energy consumption (5.22, 3.21, and 4.01%) and a lower friction energy (28.57, 21.42, and 25%) those networks with RQ less variable when...

  15. Evaluación del método activo para determinar contenidos de humedad en suelos

    Serna Farfan, José Luis; Muñoz, José Francisco; Suárez, Francisco
    [EN] In recent years, fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (FO-DTS) methods have been successfully used to investigate a wide range of hydrological applications. In particular, two methods have been developed to monitor the soil water content (θ) with the FO-DTS technology: the passive and the active methods. This work presents an assessment of the active method to determine the θ of a sandy soil. In this method, fiber-optic cables with metallic armoring are used and a voltage difference is applied between the two ends of the cable to warm it during a specified time period. Then, an empirical relationship is used...

  16. Captación de agua de lluvia y niebla en la época de secas en la ciudad de Xalapa, Veracruz, México

    Parada Molina, Paulo César; Cervantes Pérez, Juan
    [EN] This paper evaluates the amount of rainwater and fog captured and its relation with average consumption at the dwelling level in the city of Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico, during the period from November 2012 to February 2013. Rainwater is quantified by means of rocker gauges installed on the roofs of houses and fog through an omnidirectional collector commonly known as a rope collector. It is observed that the amount of rainwater collected monthly can represent 20 to 35% of the average monthly consumption, demonstrating that the rainwater harvesting is an alternative supply to meet domestic needs in the dry season....
