Conference Paper
Full-text available
Soils from a lowland small sub-catchment of the Tisza river have been analysed for phosphorus adsorption characteristics in Hungary. Five genetic soil class have been determined based on national soil databases and 21 soil samples have been collected and analysed, 3-5 samples per class. The aim of the study was to create isotherms for the soil samp...
Book
Full-text available
This document aims to establish a common understanding on the role of sediment in achieving the objectives of the Water Framework Directive, and to provide guidance on how to address pressures on sediment quantity and sediment contamination, in the context of the River Basin Management Plans, and also other policies’ planning instruments. It covers...
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
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
The contamination of waters with nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus originating from various diffuse and point sources, has become a worldwide issue in recent decades. Due to the complexity of the processes involved, watershed models are gaining an increasing role in their analysis. The goal set by the EU Water Framework Directive (to re...
Article
Full-text available
In many years excess water inundations generate a major obstacle to farming in the lowland part of Hungary, including the Marosszög area. Diverting water to large distances requires an infrastructure that is costly to develop and maintain. Alternatively, low-lying local land segments could be withdrawn from cultivation and utilized to collect the s...
Article
Full-text available
A country scale analysis of diffuse source nutrient emissions have been undertaken previously on small catchments level using the MONERIS model, which needed a proper estimation of surface and subsurface runoff differentiation to support or contradict its own water budget based method. As reliable, country scale base flow estimation has not been av...
Article
An integrated hydrological model has been applied for small rural-urban catchments at the Tisza-Maros confluence using the WateRisk integrated hydrological model system. The aim of the hydrological simulations was to identify the role that the relief plays in the runoff generation process, and to highlight the relationship between the precipitation...
Article
Full-text available
There is general agreement among scientists that global temperatures are rising and will continue to increase in the future. It is also agreed that human activities are the most important causes of these climatic variations, and that water resources are already suffering and will continue to be greatly impaired as a consequence of these changes. In...

Full-text available
Efficient solutions to flood and water logging problems are hardly achievable without flexibility in land use and management. This report considers how the use of economic policy instruments (EPIs) can improve the flexibility of land use and thereby contribute to more cost-effective flood protection and offer solutions to water logging problems. Tw...
Conference Paper
An integrated hydrological model has been developed for a small rural-urban catchment of Tisza-Maros-szög geographic area. The work has been done within the framework of the EPI-WATER FP7 EU project and the aim of the model was to support the research of the applicability of economical instruments into landscape and water management decisions. The...
Article
An integrated hydrological model has been applied for a rural-urban catchment of the Szamos-Kraszna interfluve geographic area, using the WateRisk integrated hydrological model system. The aim of the hydrological simulations was to identify the role that the relief plays in the water coverage formation process, and to highlight the possible consequ...
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...
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....
Article
A WateRisk egy jelenleg fejlesztés alatt álló integrált dinamikusan kapcsolt modellrendszer, mely komplex vízkészletgazdálkodási problémák vizsgálatát hivatott ellátni. A dolgozat ennek egydimenziós nempermanens, nyílt felszínű és nyomás alatti vízmozgás számolására alkalmas numerikus almodelljét mutatja be. A modell hibaelemzése céljából egy teszt...
