In the presented study we tested the selected sets of linear and nonlinear regression models, that describe the relationships between the selected parameters of hydrological model Bilan, which were estimated using the meteorological, hydrological series, and between the retention characteristics estimated using the selected geomorphological patterns of the river basin.
The issue of a new usage of industrial heritage (often referred to the concept of conversion) is the current trend of today. Also, water towers shutdown from water networks and stripped of their original mission can offer instead of decay or demolition attractive alternatives to new life.
Application of the water unavailability factor for characterisation of water use in LCA studies in the Czech Republic
The following article summarises the results of testing a method for the characterisation of water use in the system of life cycle assessment in the Czech Republic. The chosen method allows for robust expression of water use in the equivalent values of the reference system.
Use of wastewater‑based epidemiology for monitoring of illicit drugs consumption in Czech and international context
This paper presents a brief summary of information about the project Determination of the amount of illicit drugs and their metabolites in municipal wastewater – new tool for obtaining of complementary data on illicit drug consumption in the Czech Republic and about the 2nd International Conference on “Wastewater‑based drug epidemiology“, which was held from 11.–15. 10. 2015 in Ascona, Switzerland.
The aim of the project “QJ1520268 The new procedures of optimization system integrated protection area in the context of their economic sustainability“ is to create a design optimized system of anagement of water and soil resources in the long term, including balancing the soil‑plant‑atmosphere system and also in order to reduce the impact of climate change on agricultural ecosystem, which is highly topical issue today.
Characteristics determining the stability of woody debris on the example of Morava River in the Litovelské Pomoraví
Wood is an important part of streams, affecting their hydraulic, morphological and biological features. For the stream management and flood risk reduction it is important to know the characteristics that increase the stability of wood and prevent its flushing at high water stages.
Interview with director of SOVAK ČR Ing. Oldřich Vlasák on the theme of water law, separation of powers and the OPE.
Almost the entire 2015 precipitation was below normal and on the contrary temperature significantly above normal. Precipitation deficit began to show early in 2015 and peaked in mid-August with a further deepening in the autumn months.
In the last issue of the journal VTEI (5/2016), the reader can get acquainted with the opinion of SOVAK ČR to support “as soon as possible a complete ban on the use of glyphosate,” with regard to the possible contamination of surface waters with this substance (the main ingredient of total herbicides Roundup type) and its residues.
