Climate change, water-related disasters, flood control and rainfall forecasting: a case study of the São Francisco River, Brazil

Julio Issao KuwajimaORCID; Fernando Mainardi FanORCID; Dirk Schwanenberg; Alberto Assis Dos Reis; André Niemann; Frederico Fábio Mauad

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>Because of climate change, the frequency, intensity and/or duration of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, storms and extreme temperatures is increasing. These events are often related to loss of property, money and life, especially in poor and developing countries where there is no or poor disaster management due to social and financial difficulties or due to a lack of synergy between the mitigation actions taken. Negative impacts can be reduced and losses can be better handled with proper water management techniques. However, these should not be handled solely with traditional management. The actual problem cannot be over simplified as merely a question of coping with resources availability and demand. Therefore, the present paper aims to summarize advances in weather forecasting and reservoir operation in the Upper São Francisco River, strategic to Brazil because it provides water to the semi-arid region and energy for economically thriving Brazilian regions. Moreover, it discusses challenges, opportunities and improvements needed to implement these advances in the current national integrated water resources management. This is mainly focused on water-related disaster mitigation.</jats:p>

About this title - From Continental Shelf to Slope: Mapping the Oceanic Realm

K. Asch; H. Kitazato; H. Vallius (eds.)

<jats:p>This volume covers multi-disciplinary Research and Development contributions from Europe, Asia and North America on geology, geophysics, bathymetric and biological aspects, towards data sampling, acquisition, data analysis and its results, and innovative ways of data access. It also presents the development of processes to map, harmonize and integrate marine data across EEZ boundaries, an impressive example of which is the European EMODnet (European Marine Observation and Data network) initiative. EMODnet assembles scattered and partially hidden marine data into continentally harmonized geospatial data products for public benefit and increasingly within overseas collaboration. The volume also aims to shed light on an evaluation of biological and mineral resources and environmental assessments at continental shelf to slope depths. Western Pacific examples provide excellent case studies for this topic. Mapping of the ocean realm is not only for scientific purposes, but also for the people who live by the seas. Communication amongst scientists and multiple stakeholders is essential for living sustainably with the seas. In this volume we encourage dialogue amongst all the stakeholders.</jats:p>

Risk management planning on a volcanic island: fear and loathing in Ischia (Italy)

Mario TomasoneORCID; Gala AvvisatiORCID; Francesca CirilloORCID; Orazio ColucciORCID; Enrica MarottaORCID; Elisa FiorenzaORCID; Enrico VertechiORCID; Biagio SimonettiORCID

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>The volcanic island of Ischia (southern Italy) represents an interesting challenge as far as both risk analysis and risk management planning (RMP) go; hence, it is detailed here as a study case. We analysed the strengths and weaknesses of the emergency plans brought forward following the August 2017 earthquake, elaborating and revising scientific information, and involving researchers and experts with very different competences and backgrounds (e.g. engineers, architects, geologists, volcanologists, sociologists and information science experts). In particular, the historical evolution of the emergency plans prior to this event was recollected; the social context, on the basis of both literature and new statistical results, was analysed; and the guidelines proposed and/or implemented in other similar contexts in the world were examined. This work analyses and discusses the results, and proposes models that are universally applicable. Indeed, the key factors necessary for a 3E (Effective, Efficient and Effectual) RMP have been identified and described. These factors must characterize the RMP of the island of Ischia – and, in general, of any volcanic island – in order to be able to manage the occurrence of an emergency in the best possible way.</jats:p>

The hydrogeological karstic chalk system of the Yport springs (Seine-Maritime, France): investigations and resource exploitation

Thierry GaillardORCID; Jean-Claude Roux; Emmanuel Hauchard

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p> The small town of Yport in the northern part of the Pays de Caux, Normandy, is located on the shore of the English Channel between Étretat and Fécamp, at the outlet of a long dry valley that incises the chalk plateau. Eight hundred metres to the east, at the base of a cliff, is a cluster of springs, the ‘Fontaines d'Yport’, that emerge on the foreshore. Given their high discharge, measured at between 1 and 2.5 m <jats:sup>3</jats:sup> s <jats:sup>−1</jats:sup> , the Le Havre authorities have been interested in these springs since the 1960s, in determining their origin, locating the karst conduit, developing them, and investigating the boundaries and vulnerability of the groundwater basin. Today, one third of the drinking water that supplies the Le Havre conurbation comes from the Yport wells, and investigations into their vulnerability and protection of their resource continues. </jats:p>

Microlithic occurrences associated with sediments dated to terminal Pleistocene–Late Holocene in the central Narmada Basin, Madhya Pradesh, India

Nupur TiwariORCID; P. Morthekai; K. Krishnan; Parth R. Chauhan

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>The earliest occurrence of microliths in South Asia dates back to the Late Pleistocene at Mehtakheri (45 ka) and Dhaba (48 ka) in Central India, Jwalapuram 9 in Southern India (38 ka), Kana and Mahadebbara in Northeastern India (42–25 ka) and Batadomba-Lena (35–36 ka) and Fa Hien Lena (48 ka) in Sri Lanka. Microlithic technology is distributed across the entire Indian Subcontinent and chronologically continues up to the Iron Age and Early Historic periods. This chapter discusses new data acquired from the first author's doctoral research in the two districts of Madhya Pradesh (Hoshangabad – now renamed Narmadapuram – and Sehore), which fall within the central part of the Narmada Basin in central India. We present here preliminary dates from key areas of distribution to understand the geochronological contexts of microliths at Pilikarar, Morpani and Gurla-Sukkarwada. Initial dates from these respective occurrences range between 14 ka and 3 ka.</jats:p>

About this title - Volcanic Processes in the Sedimentary Record: When Volcanoes Meet the Environment

A. Di Capua; R. De Rosa; G. Kereszturi; E. Le Pera; M. Rosi; S. F. L. Watt

<jats:p>This book brings together research, review and methodological papers that provide an updated view on the sedimentary record of volcanism, spanning diverse processes and environments. It aims to bridge the gap between volcanological and sedimentological approaches to the investigation of processes governing the generation, dispersion and accumulation of volcaniclastic deposits.</jats:p>

About this title - Ichnology in Shallow-marine and Transitional Environments

C. Cónsole-Gonella; S. de Valais; I. Díaz-Martínez; P. Citton; M. Verde; D. McIlroy

<jats:p>The ichnology of shallow-marine to transitional environments is a key field of study with respect to understanding the variability of environmental parameters from inshore marginal-marine settings to the offshore transition zone. Over the last decades ichnology has evolved from being a tool to determine bathymetry, becoming the standard palaeoenvironmental methodology by which trace fossils can be used to inform sedimentary facies models. In particular, the analysis of mixed assemblages of invertebrate and vertebrate trace fossils allows detailed palaeoenvironmental and facies analysis. This volume focuses on the ichnological record of shallow-marine to transitional environments through the geological record, in addition to modern ones through neoichnology.</jats:p>
