  1. Exploring synergies and tradeoffs: Energy, water, and economic implications of water reuse in rice-based irrigation systems

    Applied Energy 114:889 (2014)

    • Quantify water, energy and economic implications of water reuse at system level. • There is a tradeoff between yield and energy use at all different spatial scal...
  2. Retrieved actual ET using SEBS model from Landsat-5 TM data for irrigation area of Australia

    Atmospheric Environment 59:408 (2012)

    The idea of ground-based evapotranspiration (ET) is of the most interesting for land–atmosphere interactions, such as water-saving irrigation, the performance of irrigation systems, crop water deficit, drought mitigation strategies and accurate initialization of climate prediction mode...
  3. Hydrology of mountainous areas in the upper Indus Basin, Northern Pakistan with the perspective of climate change.

    Environmental Monitoring and Assessment 184(9):5255 (2012) PMID 22109645

    Mountainous areas in the northern Pakistan are blessed by numerous rivers that have great potential in water resources and hydropower production. Many of these rivers are unexploited for their water resource potential. If the potential of these rivers are explored, hydropower production and wate...
  4. Comparison of two methods to derive time series of actual evapotranspiration using eddy covariance measurements in the southeastern Australia

    Journal of Hydrology 454-455:1 (2012)

    Highlights ► Two methods were evaluated to derive seasonal ET data. ► The first method is advection-aridity method. ► The second method is Katerji and Perrier method. ► These two methods were rarely compared before especially in Australia. ► The conclusion will be used to der...
  5. Greenhouse gas implications of water reuse in the Upper Pumpanga River Integrated Irrigation System, Philippines

    Agricultural Water Management 97(3):382 (2010)

    Enhancing water productivity is often recommended as a “soft option” in addressing the problem of increasing water scarcity. However, improving water productivity, particularly through water reuse, incurs additional investment and may result in increased greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In t...
  6. A comparative analysis of water application and energy consumption at the irrigated field level

    Agricultural Water Management 97(10):1477 (2010)

    Most government policies and community perception of the irrigation sector promotes the conversion from gravity-fed to pressurised irrigation methods as a way of reducing water consumption by the irrigation sector. However, optimising for one aspect of a system can have unintended resource ...
  7. Spatial assessment of water use in an environmentally sensitive wetland.

    Ambio 38(3):157 (2009) PMID 19580033

    Wetlands are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world and are crucial in supporting biodiversity. They also provide space for storing surface waters, where intense biological processing occurs that helps improve water quality. Human activities, particularly irrigated agriculture and urban...
  8. The NAFE’06 data set: Towards soil moisture retrieval at intermediate resolution

    Advances in Water Resources 31(11):1444 (2008)

    The National Airborne Field Experiment 2006 (NAFE’06) was conducted during a three week period of November 2006 in the Murrumbidgee River catchment, located in southeastern Australia. One objective of NAFE’06 was to explore the suitability of the area for SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salin...
  9. Evaluating the impact of Tax-for-Fee reform (Fei Gai Shui) on water resources and agriculture production in the Zhanghe Irrigation System, China

    Food Policy 33(6):576 (2008)

    This article questions the effectiveness and viability of rural Tax-for-Fee reform ( Fei Gai Shui) on water resources and agriculture production, taking the Zhanghe Irrigation System of China as a case study example. The Fei Gai Shui reform has been heralded as a possible solut...
