We are pleased to announce the transition of Hydrology Research (HR) to a fully Open Access journal from 1 January 2020. The move to Open Access coincides with the 50th anniversary of the journal and a 37.4% increase in Impact Factor (to 2.47). To make this transition possible, all articles submitted after 31 October, 2019 will be subject to Open Access fees if they are accepted for publication.
The CIEEM Awards are a fantastic celebration of the success of projects, businesses and individuals who have made significant contributions to protecting the natural environment. Next year, our Awards Ceremony will be held on 25th June at the prestigious Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London.
The Awards categories for 2020 are:
Challenges and Choices is a great opportunity to engage with your communities, partners and stakeholders. It’s a chance to urge your partners to contribute to the consultation and to get them more involved in river basin and catchment management. Challenges and Choices gives you an opportunity to help secure commitment and investment from a wider range of partners –to support your activities and improve the water environment.
This guide has been produced to provide simple, clear advice on the provision of natural flood management measures for lowland areas.
Wild trout and many other species are coming back to city streams after centuries of abuse. But these recovering ecosystems still need all the help we can give them – so Trout in the Town is the Wild Trout Trust’s project to help local communities look after their rivers in towns and cities across the UK.
By some calculations, over 90% of the UK’s population will be living in urban areas by 2030, and rivers and green spaces have huge benefits for people’s health and happiness.
The French National River Restoration Centre, as part of the French Agency for Biodiversity presents a new video. This video shows the benefits ecological engineering can have on flood protection, rainwater management, water quality in peri-urban areas and in harbor management.
The National Trust said the project at Holnicote Estate in Somerset is the first of its kind for the UK.
A project to return rivers to a more natural state where they meander "like the branches of a tree" is being brought in to help wildlife and tackle flooding.
The National Trust said the project at Holnicote Estate in Somerset is the first of its kind for the UK and will allow rivers to flow through multiple channels, pools and shallow riffles as they would have done before human interference.
Eagley Brooks was identified by Natural Course as being a high priority waterbody for the Irwell Catchment Partnership to focus on. This waterbody has a number of physical modifications, such as weirs, which impact the quality and ecological status of the river.
Many of the weirs were built during the Industrial Revolution, and so form part of the local heritage of the area, however due to age, some are starting to fail.
Much geomorphological research has potential to be applied but this paper examines the extent and nature of actual applications to environmental management. It reviews how this work has expanded and changed and reflects on the stimuli, types of involvement, and attitudes. These aspects, and how geomorphology can be applied effectively, are exemplified by developments in coastal and river management in the UK, highlighting the contributions made by geomorphology to sustainable strategies.
