Water desalination has become one of the sources of water supply in many countries, especially in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) where the renewable resources are limited. Water desalination can provide unlimited and constant supply of high-quality drinking water and reduces pressure on freshwater ecosystems and groundwater resources. However, as the capacity installed worldwide increases at a rapid pace, increasing concerns are also expressed over potential negative impacts of the desalination activity on the environment. The main concerns are the emission of air pollutants due to a fossil energy use and the waste water discharge to the sea: high salinity water, often containing residual antiscalants. The selection of the...

Social Assessment of Protected Areas Early Experience and Results of a Participatory, Rapid ApproachPhil Franks, Dilys Roe, Rob Small, Helen Schneider2014


2014


Assessing the positive and negative social impacts of protected areas is no easy task, but it can be done with relatively simple, low cost methodologies. Designed for this purpose, the Social Assessment of Protected Areas (SAPA) methodology can be applied to any protected area (PA), regardless of its management category and governance type, and to related conservation and development activities that are designed to support PA conservation. At the heart of the SAPA methodology is a multi-stakeholder process that enhances accuracy and credibility, and ensures that the assessment addresses the information needs not only of PA managers, but also of other key actors in government, civil society and the private sector. This working paper...

Wetlands are among the most productive life supporting systems of the world with immense socio-economic, ecological and bio-aesthetic importance. From time immemorial, river valleys and wetlands have played a critical role in fostering culture and civilization. However, wetlands did not receive due consideration and appreciation. Consequently wetlands have diminished in size and quality at alarming rates throughout the developed and developing countries. Apparently, they are considered almost synonymous with wastelands, to be filled up, occupied and diverted for various human needs, disregarding the ecological services these ecosystems offer to humankind. Wetlands are lost / degraded due to anthropogenic activities such as agriculture...

Conserving large carnivores: dollars and fenceC. Packer et al.2013


2013


Conservationists often advocate for landscape approaches to wildlife management while others argue for physical separation between protected species and human communities, but direct empirical comparisons of these alternatives are scarce. We relate African lion population densities and population trends to contrasting management practices across 42 sites in 11 countries. Lion populations in fenced reserves are significantly closer to their estimated carrying capacities than unfenced populations. Whereas fenced reserves can maintain lions at 80% of their potential densities on annual management budgets of $500 km!2, unfenced populations require budgets in excess of $2000 km!2 to attain half their potential densities. Lions in fenced...

Assessment of Hydrogeological and Water Quality Parameters, Using MRS and VES in the Vientiane Basin, LaosNils Perttu2008


2008


Water is essential for all life on the planet, sustaining and ensuring the earth’s ecosystem. Groundwater from a global perspective provides about 50% of the potable water supplies, 40% of the industrial water and 20% of the irrigated agriculture. For drinking water, deep groundwater has many advantages compared to surface water and shallow groundwater, since it demands little or no treatment and the access is secured against temporary droughts. However, salinity in deep groundwater is common in coastal areas and in areas where rock salt is occurring naturally in the soil and bedrock...

The response of stable water isotopes in precipitation and the surface ocean to tropical climate variabilityJosephine Brown2004


2004


Stable water isotope records may be used to reconstruct tropical climate variability on seasonal to glacial time scales. Isotopic ratios in precipitation are archived in tropical ice cores, and may be interpreted as records of precipitation, temperature and atmospheric circulation variability in the tropics. Isotopic ratios in the carbonate skeletons of coral and foraminifera record local and mean ocean isotopic ratios as well as sea surface temperature. Reconstruction of past climate from isotopic records requires assumptions about the isotope–climate relationship on the relevant time scale. In order to test these assumptions, an isotopic tracer scheme in the Melbourne University General Circulation Model is used to simulate the isotope...

Multi-scale climate modelling over Southern Africa using a variable-resolution global modelFA Engelbrecht, WA Landman, CJ Engelbrecht, S Landman, MM Bopape, B Roux, JL McGregor and M Thatcher2011


2011


Evidence is provided of the successful application of a single atmospheric model code at time scales ranging from short-range weather forecasting through to projections of future climate change, and at spatial scales that vary from relatively low-resolution global simulations, to ultra-high resolution simulations at the micro-scale. The model used for these experiments is a variable-resolution global atmospheric model, the conformal-cubic atmospheric model (CCAM). It is shown that CCAM may be used to obtain plausible projections of future climate change, as well as skilful forecasts at the seasonal and short-range time scales, over the Southern African region. The model is additionally applied for extended simulations of present-day ...

AN ANALYSIS OF THE ENSO SIGNAL IN THE TROPICAL ATLANTIC AND WESTERN INDIAN OCEANSSHARON E. NICHOLSON1997


1995


This article examines the time–space evolution of the El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal in the tropical Atlantic and western Indian Oceans, using harmonic analysis. Composites of sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) and other variables are examined for a 24-month period beginning 6 months prior to the year of maximum warming in the Pacific (termed year 0). An ENSO signal is apparent in the Atlantic in six out of eight Pacific episodes and in the Indian Ocean in all eight episodes. Warming begins along the south-eastern Atlantic coast early in year 0, some months later elsewhere in the Atlantic and in the Indian Ocean. Maximum warming occurs in the Atlantic in October–December of year 0, but in the following January–March...

Maximum flood depth characterizes above-ground biomass in African seasonally shallowly flooded grasslandsPaul Scholte12006


2006


Flood depth has been frequently used to explain the distribution of plant species in seasonally flooded grasslands, but its relation with vegetation production has remained ambiguous. The relationship between flooding and above-ground biomass at the end of the flooding season and during the dry season was studied to assess the impact of reflooding on the Logone floodplain, Cameroon. Above-ground biomass of a combination of all species and of the individual perennial grasses Oryza longistaminata and Echinochloa pyramidalis showed a positive linear relationship with maximum flood depth up to 1 m. The gradient of these relationships became steeper and their fit better during the 2 y following the installation of the flooding, showing...

Late Cainozoic Drainage Evolution in the Zambeze Basin: Geomorphological Evidence From The Kalahart RimDavid .S.G Thomas Paul A. Shaw1988


1987


The development of Zambezi drainage system is discussed within the framework of the post Gondwana tectonic evaluation of the southern Afrika. An internal drainage system, including the proto-upper Zambezi has been progressively captured during the Late Cainozoic by a more aggressive coastwise. Supporting geomorphic system evidence is presented from the east Kalahart rim. Drainage alignments and gradients, Zambezi and terrace sequence are discussed. Lacustrine features found in the present watershed between the middle Zambezi and internal system are described and explained as remmants of the former proto-upper Zambezi tributary system. Their interaction with linear dune activity is also examined. Despite the problems of dating drainage...

Assessing the Importance of Woodland Landscape Locations for Both Local Communities and Conservation in Gorongosa and Muanza Districts, Sofala Province, MozambiqueTimothy Lynam, Robert Cunliffe, and Isaac Mapaure2004


2004


In collaboration with two communities living in, and on the edge of, Gorongosa National Park (GNP), Mozambique, we researched the importance of different landscape units to these communities and used the information to develop a management plan for GNP. We conceived the importance of a landscape to local people as a ratio of the benefits they derive from it and the costs of accessing or using those benefits. To test this expectation, we developed Bayesian belief models, for which the parameters were the relative preference weightings derived from community members (the relative preferences for benefits and relative expectations of costs). We then collected field data to confront the models for each of the two sites. In a parallel process...

Management Oriented Monitoring System in Bazaruto National Park, Results from 2006Alice Costa2007


2006


The Management Oriented Monitoring System (MOMS) was adapted from the Namibian project: Event Book System a community-based natural resource monitoring system from Namibia (Stuart-Hill et al., 2005). MOMS it is a guide for simple record of the level of use of the natural resources by stakeholder in a given area for management purposes. The fact that this system is simple it can be use by local community and most importantly, they can select what they want to monitor and it is not a research orientated. The entire system is paper-based, which seems to be the appropriate technology for remote rural areas and avoid the sustainability problems of ever-charging computer technology (Stuart-Hill et al., 2005).

AN OVERVIEW OF THE IMPACT OF MINING AND MINERAL PROCESSING OPERATIONS ON WATER RESOURCES AND WATER QUALITY IN THE ZAMBEZI, LIMPOPO AND OLIFANTS CATCHMENTS IN SOUTHERN AFRICAPeter Ashton, David Love, Harriet Mahachi and Paul Dirks2001


2001


The different types of typical chemical and physical impacts associated with diverse mining and mineral processing operations are described to provide an overview of the specific types of impacts that are normally associated with the mining or processing of specific minerals. In several cases, it was difficult to determine the specific impact exerted by a mining operation, because the impact(s) also depended on the degree of management control exerted during mining. Based on defined criteria, the impacts of mining and mineral processing operations were classified into high, medium and low impacts. These descriptors were then used to describe the scale and variety of impacts linked to mining activities in each of the sub-catchments...

Geology and geomorphology of the Urema Graben with emphasis on the evolution of Lake UremaFranziska Steinbruch2010


2008


The Lake Urema floodplain belongs to the Urema Catchment and is located in the downstream area of the Pungwe River basin in Central Mozambique. The floodplain is situated in the Urema Graben, which is the southern part of the East African Rift System. Little geological information exists about this area. The circulated information is not readily available, and is often controversial and incomplete. In this paper the state of knowledge about the geology and tectonic evolution of the Lake Urema wetland area and the Urema Catchment is compiled, reviewed and updated. This review is intended to be a starting point for approaching practical questions such as: How deep is the Urema Graben? What controls the hydrology of Lake Urema? Where are...

Geomorphology, hydrology, and ecology of Lake Urema, central Mozambique, with focus on lake extent changesBeate Bo¨hme , Franziska Steinbruch, Richard Gloaguen, Hermann Heilmeier, Broder Merkel2006


1997-2000


Lake Urema is one of the most important ecological features of Gorongosa National Park, located in central Mozambique, in the East African Rift System. Understanding hydrology and ecology of the lake and its tributaries is particularly important for the conservationof the Park’s floodplain habitats and its biodiversity. There are concerns that hydrological boundary conditions and ecology of Lake Urema have changed in recent years. Possible causes for this change include climatic and land use changes as well as tectonic and geomorphological processes. In this study, a multi-temporal and multi-disciplinary approach was applied to investigate the dynamics and control mechanisms of Lake Urema. Principal methods comprised remote sensing...

Several studies have compiled and analysedmeasured contemporary catchment sediment yield (SY, [t km−2 y−1]) values for various regions of the world. Although this has significantly contributed to our understanding of SY, Africa remains severely underrepresented in these studies. The objective of this article is therefore: (1) to review and compile available SY data for Africa; (2) to explore the spatial variability of these SY data; and (3) to examine which environmental factors explain this spatial variability. A literature reviewresulted in a dataset of SYmeasurements for 682 African catchments from84 publications and reports, representing more than 8340 catchment-years of observations...

Distributing conservation incentives in the buffer zone of Chitwan National Park, NepalARIAN SPITERI1 AND SANJAY K. NEPAL2008


2007


Since the late 1980s, biodiversity conservation efforts have expanded to incorporate delivering social and economic benefits to communities nearby or within protected areas. Benefits can generate incentives to encourage conservation support; however, such incentive-based programmes (IBPs) have been criticized owing to their inability to provide equal and equitable distribution of benefits. This research examines the distribution of IBPs in the buffer zone of Nepal’s Chitwan National Park (CNP). Questionnaire interview data indicate the livelihoods of buffer zone residents remain strained by conservation activities. While benefits under IBPs are recognized by the residents, villages distant from the main tourist entry points to the park...

Convivendo com o Fogo— Manutenção dos Ecossistemas & Subsistência com o Manejo Integrado do FogoRonald L. Myers2006


2006


A percepção do fogo como ferramenta útil surgiu com os primeiros humanos quando estes, há milhares de anos, passaram a se beneficiar dos efeitos do fogo para alterar a vegetação e a vida selvagem nas savanas africanas. É muito provável que a ameaça, representada pelo fogo, à segurança e à subsistência desses povos já lhes fosse óbvia, de modo que, à medida que a humanidade foi se espalhando pelo planeta, novos regimes de fogo foram criados, os quais moldavam e modificavam sucessivamente a paisagem. Há também os incêndios que destroem as casas, as lavouras, os animais e os outros recursos. Portanto, “as duas faces do fogo” — o fogo benéfico e o fogo maléfico — sempre existiram.

Detecting Changes in Ecological Time SeriesAlan D. Jassby; Thomas M. Powell1990


1990


Some practical techniques are discussed for analyzing time series whose statistical properties are changing with time. We first consider how principal component analysis can reduce the multidimensional nature of certain series and, in particular, apply this techniques to analyze of changing seasonal patterns. Discussion of trend, changes in oscillatory behavior and unusual events flow. The problem of making inferences regarding causation is briefly considered. We conclude with a call for flexibility in approach.

The effective planning and monitoring of the Gorongosa National Park (GNP) and the Gorongosa Mountain ecosystems will require understanding of past, present and future interactions between the biophysical, animal and human environments. The compilation, analysis and modeling of the variables controlling these complex interactions could be facilitated through the use of Geographical Information Systems. Park managers are increasingly using such tools to assist them in landscape-level conservation planning, species distribution modeling and human infrastructure monitoring and modeling, as well as in setting priorities for specific species. While we recognize the need to address an overall information system for the entire Gorongosa complex...

Inventory of free-ranging lions Panthera leo in AfricaH. Bauer and S. Van Der Merwe2004


2001


Panthera leo has never been comprehensively assessed. The number of free ranging African lions are small and fragmented in West and Central Africa, whereas the species still occurs widely in East- and Southern Africa. We present an inventory of available information, covering most protected areas and ranging in quality from educated guesses to individually known populations. This gives a conservative estimate of 16,500–30,000 free ranging lions in Africa. The results concur with the current IUCN Red List categorization of the lion as Vulnerable.

2003


An ecological threshold is the point at which there is an abrupt change in an ecosystem quality, property or phenomenon, or where small changes in an environmental driver produce large responses in the ecosystem. Analysis of thresholds is complicated by nonlinear dynamics and by multiple factor controls that operate at diverse spatial and temporal scales. These complexities have challenged the use and utility of threshold concepts in environmental management despite great concern about preventing dramatic state changes in valued ecosystems, the need for determining critical pollutant loads and the ubiquity of other threshold-based environmental problems. In this paper we define the scope of the thresholds concept in ecological science...

A hundred research priorities of critical importance to protected area management were identified by a targeted survey of conservation professionals; half researchers and half practitioners. Respondents were selected to represent a range of disciplines, every continent except Antarctica and roughly equal numbers of men and women. The results analysed thematically and grouped as potential research topics as by both practitioners and researchers. Priority research gaps reveal a high interest to demonstrate the role of protected areas within a broader discussion about sustainable futures and if and how protected areas can address a range of conservation and socio-economic...

Landscape fires are substantial sources of (greenhouse) gases and aerosols. Fires in savanna landscapes represent more than half of global fire carbon emissions. Quantifying emissions from fires relies on accurate burned area, fuel load and burning efficiency data. Of these, fuel load remains the source of the largest uncertainty. In this study, we used high spatial resolution images from an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) mounted multispectral camera, in combination with meteorological data from the ERA-5 land dataset, to model instantaneous pre-fire above-ground biomass. We constrained our model with ground measurements taken in two locations in savannadominated regions in Southern Africa, one low-rainfall region (660 mm year−1...

Instantaneous Pre-Fire Biomass and Fuel Load Measurements from Multi-Spectral UAS Mapping in Southern African Savannas
Characterization of a Pleistocene thermal spring in MozambiqueFranziska Steinbruch & Broder J. Merkel2008


2007


A hydrogeological study was conducted with the objective to investigate the only currently known hot spring of Sofala Province in Mozambique with respect to the origin of the water, the discharge, and its chemical composition. Field investigations comprised a general land use survey, mapping of sediment and water temperatures, discharge measurements and on-site water chemistry as well as sampling for further chemical analyses and groundwater dating. Thermal water discharge occurs along a 100m long NE–SW zone with water temperatures ranging from 42 to 64.5°C. The thermal water is a lowmineralized sodium-chloride-sulfate water enriched in phosphate, fluorine and nickel. The silica geothermometer, the silica concentration of 43mg/kg ...
