This paper discusses vulnerability of freshwater resources in large and medium Nepalese river basins to environmental change based on evaluation of water resource availability and variation, resource development and use, ecological health and management capacity; and compares the situation with selected sub-basins of the Ganges and the Mekong basins in Asia. Results suggest that water resources in the medium river basins are more vulnerable than in the large basins; and Nepalese basins, in general, are more vulnerable than other selected basins in the Asian region. The vulnerability in the Nepalese basins is more related to poor management capacity followed by resources variation and the least to development pressure. The poor management capacity is mainly related to low productivity of water use and the resources stress is related mainly to variation of the resource.
We present a non-parametric method to measure inhomogeneities in the
Intracluster medium (ICM) from X-ray observations of galaxy clusters. Analyzing
Mock Chandra X-ray observations of simulated clusters, we show that our new
Method enables the accurate recovery of the 3D gas density and gas clumping...
We compare new HST images to images in the same filters observed
As much as 11 y previously to uncover large proper motions and surface
Brightness changes in its multiple finger-shaped outflows. The expansion age of
The ensemble of fingers is close to 100y. We find strong brightness variations
We consider a population with non-overlapping generations, whose size goes to
Infinity. It is described by a discrete genealogy which may be time
Non-homogeneous and we pay special attention to branching trees in varying
Environments. A Markov chain models the dynamic of the trait of each individual...
