Forest management planning today is designed to provide multiple values to society, increase ecosystem resilience, increase water yield
, protect soil erosion, conserve biodiversity, improve tree growth and vigor and address the risk of natural disturbances.
The watershed referred to under the IRR of RA 7942 is 'critical watershed,' which means a drainage area of a river system, lake or water reservoir supporting existing and proposed hydroelectric power, domestic water supply, geothermal power and irrigation works that need immediate rehabilitation and protection to minimize soil erosion, improve water yield
and prevent possible flooding.
'We have solicited funding to augment daily water yield
from available boreholes,' he said.
The water yield
coefficient (WYC) refers to the proportion of the amount of gross water resources (i.e., the amount of surface water and groundwater that does not overlap with surface water generated by precipitation) in a region.
This process required estimates of the existing land uses, literature-based estimates of nitrate-N concentrations in tile and subsurface water, and estimates of water yield
InVEST can assess the value of 18 different ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration, water yield
, nutrient retention, and recreation and tourism.
Therefore, transient electromagnetic method (TEM) was proposed, and TEM data was processed to detect the water yield
property of a targeted layer in the coal mine.
Hence under normal conditions the total water yield
from Cauvery can only be maintained but cannot be increased; the chances are that it will be going on decreasing as the years go by as is happening in all the rivers in our country.
1997, 2000a), water yield
assessments for agriculture, urban and environmental requirements (Hawkins 1993) and as an input variable for water quality models and the design of monitoring programs (Fentie et al.
The cumulative water yield
from the thousands of wells being flared can meet 11 percent and 65 percent of the water consumption in the Eagle Ford and the Bakken, respectively.
The multi-use project will save the island 236,107 litres of diesel fuel, equivalent to $272,940 in annual savings, and displace 652 tons of CO2 emissions every year, as well as increasing the rain water yield
of the reservoir by six per cent.
