Section 2 Riverine hydraulics and hydrology: Using ISIS Sediment for simulating graded sediment behaviour in rivers; Three-dimensional simulation of river flood flows; Changes in the hydrologic periodicity of the Mississippi River, USA; River dynamics and restoration: A comprehensive management strategy; Changes in flow in the upper North Canadian River basin of western Oklahoma, pre-development to 2000; A one-dimensional coupled hydrodynamic and salinity model of the Clyde Estuary. Section 3 Flood mapping and prediction: Use of an integrated one dimensional-two dimensional hydraulic modelling approach for flood hazard and risk mapping; Effects of flood plain management on river hydraulics - a case study; Flood forecasting in Andhra Pradesh, India; Uncertainties in Dam Failure Modelling with the US NSW BREACH Model; Design and development of an internet-based flood forecasting system using real-time rainfall, radar and river flow data; Open architecture in flood forecasting systems; Appropriate spatial resolution in flood damage modelling. Section 4 Wetland restoration and management: Protection of vulnerable wetlands located in the south-east part of Sicily; a plan to restore the original habitat; River and environmental processes in the wetland restoration of the Morava River; Channelization effects on floodplain functions in western Tennessee. Section 5 Water quality and environmental modelling: The effect of effluents from fish hatcheries on slightly disturbed rivers - a case study; Modelling hydro-environmental processes in riverine systems; Description of nutrient s seasonal behaviour in Ebro river plume; Modeling water quality in time and space: case study the Litani River, Lebanon. Section 6 Ecological and bacteriological perspectives: Implementation of a catchment-based national microbial water quality monitoring programme in prioritised high health risk areas; Guidelines for spatial distribution of ecotopes, based on ecological networks and geomorphological boundary conditions. Section 7 Hydrological modelling, GIS and remote sensing: Integrated hydrologic and landslide risk management in the Romagna River Basins using cartographic predictive modelling; Quantitative approach for the determination of hydrological landscapes; Taking hydro-spatial analysis to another dimension using STEM, a 4D GIS; Remote sensing of fluvial landforms in the Lar Basin, Iran; Geographic Information Systems, Expert Systems and Neural Networks: Disaster planning, mitigation and recovery.
