How can our relationship to water become more meaningful? How might water imbue our lives with meaning, and what would a more intimate connection with water imply for our use and management of water and natural water ecosystems? This topic will explore issues such as:. Our relationship to local waters informs our identity and frames our understanding of both nature and society.

Lake and Reservoir Management, Volume 54
New published:. C, Environments , 6, Environmental impact of large reservoirs in Northeastern Brazil — Development of an adapted water management. To realize this it is necessary to carry out basic research concerning the turnover processes of nutrients as well of the biodiversity. The knowledge of limnological processes of reservoirs is of high significance, in particular because the occurrence of undesired species e.
The mass development of macrophytes Egeria densa is linked to the occurrence of schistosomiasis bilharziosis , which leads to human-pathogenic effects. Focus of research cooperation with Northeastern Brazilian universities. Innovative concepts for a sustainable management of reservoirs are.
Siegmund-Schultze, M. Reg Environ Change 18 7 , Eutrophication - Oligotrophication of reservoirs. Reservoirs— Water basin — Management. Focus of research cooperation with Northeastern Brazilian universities Environmental impact of hydropower use , analysis of environmental effects caused by 20 to 30 years old reservoirs. Hydro-dynamic modelling as a contribution to reservoir management Quantification of water exchange processes of reservoirs and their bays. Occurrence of undesired species HAB, harmful algae blooms , mainly cyanobacteria Microcystis, Cylindrospermopsis. Mass development of undesired submerged macrophyte water pest, Egeria densa and possibilities for regulation.
Use of satellite images for water quality monitoring remote sensing , especially to detect algae and submerged macrophytes. Oligotrophication of reservoirs as a basis for sustainable and multiple water use.
Use of deposited sediments for soil melioration for agriculture and sylviculture. Innovative concepts for a sustainable management of reservoirs are Oligotrophication amongst others management of water basin, buffer systems for drainage water, excavation of sediments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and guarantee ecosystem services.
Blue aquaculture as an alternative concept for cultivation techniques of Tilapia in net cages.
The presently used fish production in net cages leads to severe ecological impact eutrophication, accumulation of sediments mud beneath the net cages, introduction of toxic substances heavy metals, antibiotic, fungicides, among others and impact on natural fish population and does not fulfill guidelines of animal welfare.
The hydropower energy production needs to be linked to the availability of water, this means that periodic water level fluctuations must be minimized. Water level fluctuations lead to severe impact on aquatic ecosystems disintegration of lake shore vegetation, mobilization of nutrients from desiccated sediments, die off of submerged vegetation and their fauna.
