Article
Full-text available
The pursuit of good management of our waters poses permanent challenges to the whole society. Decision-makers often need to define appropriate and sustainable strategies on interdisciplinary topics, like water management issues. The rapidly evolving quantification and mapping of hydrologic ecosystem services (HES) is putting hydrologic and water ma...
Article
Full-text available
The warming of the climate and shrinking freshwater resources pose serious challenges to European agriculture. Meeting these challenges demands a thorough knowledge of the major trends in soil moisture patterns across the continent over time. Charting the available soil water (ASW) content (m 3 m-3) derived from the ERA5 Land dataset in grid cells...
Article
Full-text available
Charting the long-term trends in European wheat and maize yields and harvested areas and the relation of yields to climatic and economic drivers, two profound spatial processes become apparent. One consequence of the relatively late modernization of Eastern Europe has been to shift the focus of grain production from West to East. The warming trend...
Article
Full-text available
Riverine floods cause increasingly severe damages to human settlements and infrastructure. Ecosystems have a natural capacity to decrease both severity and frequency of floods. Natural flood regulation processes along freshwaters can be attributed to two different mechanisms: flood prevention that takes place in the whole catchment and flood mitiga...
Article
Full-text available
During the 20th century in the Hungarian lowlands the emphasis was put on maximizing provisioning ecosystem services (ES), which caused the weakening of regulating and other services. With the growing environmental pressures, it is crucial to apply a more adaptive landscape management. This, however, leads to territorial conflicts, as large areas w...
Article
Full-text available
Implementation of an extensive urban runoff monitoring program, targeting the quantification of heavy metal and organic micropollutant loads, necessitated the development of an autonomous water sampler. The design requirements for the device were to fulfill flow-proportional continuous composite sampling of urban runoff events in a widely customiza...
Article
Full-text available
With the introduction of the Water Framework Directive, the relative importance of smaller waterways increased. This statement is particularly true for Hungary, where water-quality monitoring of most smaller rivers only began 12 years ago. Due to their large number, and the lack of historical data concerning their state, systematic monitoring is a...
Article
Full-text available
Watershed area and a bunch of relief, land use, and wastewater characteristics for 32 upland and 33 lowland small river courses are generated. Based on these characteristics, logistic binary regression models are trained to predict if the river achieves the good physico-chemical status, and discriminant analysis models are trained to predict the ph...
Article
A methodology is proposed to calculate statistical average and standard deviation of long time water quality parameter series along a river network. The method considers the water network as a graph consisting of straight sessions and junctions. With a Taylor-series approximation, statistical values of an arbitrary point of the network can be calcu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Az Európai Unió 2000/60/EK irányelve, azaz a Víz Keretirányelv (VKI) a felszíni vizek jó ökológiai és kémiai állapotának elérését és annak megőrzését tűzi ki célként. Ennek biztosításához ökológiai alapokon nyugvó, a vízi ökoszisztémák védelmét és funkciójának megőrzését előtérbe helyező állapotértékelési rendszert vezetett be. A felszíni vizek áll...
Article
Full-text available
Application of WateRisk Integrated Hydrologic Model (WR IHM) on two pilot areas (PA) is introduced. Inland excess water (quite similar hydrological conditions to wetlands) and drought have been primarily focused on. The developed WR IHM proved to be able to describe complex hydrologic-hydrodynamic processes simultaneously by coupled surface-subsurf...
Article
Full-text available
There are major unsolved water resources problems (water scarcity, excess water, floods, water budget imbalance) in Hungary, which are likely to worsen in the future due to the unfavourable trend of driving forces. The aim of the WateRisk project was to support scientific understanding and management of the mentioned issues. To do so, a novel scena...
Article
Full-text available
Due to its specific hydrologic/hydro-geologic situation, Hungary is risked by extremities in water resources aggravated by direct and indirect anthropogenic effects and climate change. The mitigation of these risks could only be feasible by means of landscape scale planning. Latter would be advanced by comparing the natural capital of the possible...
Book
Full-text available
A Kárpát-medence, s így hazánk vízkészleteinek jövőjét különböző külső és belső környezeti, társadalmi, politikai folyamatok kombinációja határozza meg – mint például a globális változások (beleértve az éghajlatváltozást), a népességnövekedés, a földhasználat-változás, a terület- ill. településfejlesztés, ill. a gazdasági és technikai fejlesztések....
