Professor Smith’s research focuses on catchment management, which takes account of the interdependence of human land and water uses with each other and with natural processes. ‘Catchment’ refers to the sub-basins of tributaries, or a whole river basin itself, as defined by the watersheds that divide surface drainage. A drainage basin is any area of land where precipitation collects and drains off into a common outlet, such as into a river, bay, or other body of drainage basin includes all the surface water from rain runoff, snowmelt, hail, sleet and nearby streams that run downslope towards the shared outlet, as well as the groundwater underneath the earth's surface. Catchment‐Based Management Alternatives Geographic Information Base [18] A spatial database of land use and management was created using a Geographic Information System (GIS). High spatial resolution state government cadastre and land use databases were used to identify land use on individual properties in the Myponga by: D. Bennett and J. F. Thomas, Elsevier Scientific Publishing Company, Oxford, Price: US% ISBN 0 8. From the title of this book the â rationalâ reader might expect a critique of systems analysis methods applicable to a broad range of catchment land use planning problems. In fact, the text explains an application of linear programming to land use planning in the Murray Author: Kay, David.

Abstract. The sources utilized in the compilation of this chapter fall into two distinct categories. For the early period between the two world wars, the sources are almost entirely historical accounts written about the different forms of land use in the jarrah forest during this by: It was a multi-agency collaborative programme to provide “information and knowledge aimed at improving the management of land, freshwater, and near-coastal environments in catchments with multiple, interacting, and potentially conflicting land uses”.

The integrated management of drinking water from source to tap must consider the mitigation of the effects of land use and climate on river system stress. Likewise, we must also consider the growing population exposure to environmental contaminants in water and inequalities related to the exposure of contaminants resulting from multistressed.

The term “multiple use” seems fairly self-descriptive. For public land management, it means: public lands have many. resources (renewable and non-renewable), such as forage, timber, energy, habitat, etc., and public lands have many.

Integrated Catchment Management Rather than focussing on small-scale processes or isolated activities, Integrated Catchment Management seeks to provide a framework for understanding the cumulative interactions of past, present, and possible future land use activities on land, freshwater, and marine resources.

Integrated catchment management (ICM) is an approach to sustainable land and water management, recognizing flow-mediated connections through catchments and the need for interdisciplinary and community-based collaboration (Commonwealth of Australia, ; Falkenmark, ; Jakeman and Letcher, ; Kattel et al., ).

Originating in Australia, South Africa, and England over the last 30. The project “Optimizing the management of a cascade of reservoir at the catchment level” investigates the multiple uses for reservoirs within a catchment. The project was undertaken as part of the Challenge Program: Water and Food in the Mekong Basin.

The Victorian Catchment Management Council is the government’s key advisory body on catchment management and the condition of land and water resources. It has a state-wide focus and long-term vision: Victoria will have healthy rivers flowing through ecologically sustainable and productive catchments.

In terms of multiple-use land management, on the other hand, the primary concern of the farmer or landowner is to achieve optimum yields of products and services from a given area without impairing the productive capacity of the site.

Groundwater is the most important resource for local society and the ecosystem in the semi-arid Hailiutu River catchment.

Integrated catchment management recognizes the existence of ecosystems and their role in supporting flora and fauna. Chongwe River Catchment, a sub-catchment of the Zambezi River Basin, has been experiencing changes in land use/land cover (LULC) and in its hydrology.

Paired catchment studies usually show a stronger impact of land use changes on the seasonal water balance than on floods [Brown et al., ]. One reason is the masking of land use change effects by other processes as the catchment scale increases, such as the variability in precipitation patterns [O'Connell et al., ].Cited by: Natural Flood Management (NFM) is an approach that seeks to work with natural processes to enhance the flood regulating capacity of a catchment, whilst delivering a wide range of ecosystem services, from pollution assimilation to habitat creation and carbon storage.
