This paper presents several cases of unrealized elevated water tank projects in the Czech Republic. It deals with the technical solution of unrealized objects and at the same time presents the reasons why the designers, official bodies or investors led to the search for another solution.
A rainfall simulator is a common laboratory tool for soil erosion research. Typical objective of the rainfall experiments is the evaluation of various factors on soil erosion processes, such as the effect of rainfall intensity, rainfall duration, soil characteristics, soil management, crop residues on the soil surface, plot’s slope and length.
The article provides information on the development of the NAVAROSO expert information system built for the needs of components active in the event of an emergency situation on the water. It provides the cross-linked data needed to quickly obtain information on the possible causes of deterioration in water quality, procedures to determine the type of pollution and estimate its spread in the watercourse.
