  1. Evaluating the impact of Tax-for-Fee reform (Fei Gai Shui) on water resources and agriculture production in the Zhanghe Irrigation System, C...

    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 solution...
  2. The economic value of improved agrometeorological information to irrigators amid climate variability

    International Journal of Climatology 9999(9999):n/a (2009)

  3. Economic evaluation of small multi-purpose ponds in the Zhanghe irrigation system, China

    Agricultural Water Management 91(1):61 (2007)

    Ponds are small reservoirs that allow farmers in irrigated areas to capture rainfall, store surplus water from irrigation canals, and conserve water from other sources. Though ponds have been used widely in irrigated areas for many years, recent increases in the construction of ponds due to gro...
  4. Comparison of two methods to derive time series of actual evapotranspiration using eddy covariance measurements in the southeastern Australi...

    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 derive...
  5. 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 and...
  6. 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 Salinity)...
  7. 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 water su...
  8. Greenhouse gas implications of water reuse in the Upper Pumpanga River Integrated Irrigation System, Philippines

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

    We analysed the water productivity and GHG implications of water reuse through pumping groundwater and creek water, and compare this with gravity-fed canal irrigation in the Upper Pampanga River Integrated Irrigation System (UPRIIS) in the Philippines. Water productivity indicators show that wa...
  9. 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 dev...
  10. Mapping and assessing water use in a Central Asian irrigation system by utilizing MODIS remote sensing products
