• Agricultural interventions and investment options for climate change in drought and saline-flood prone regions of Bangladesh 

      Xenarios, Stefanos; Sarker, Golam Wahed; Biswas, Jatish Chandra; Maniruzzaman, Md; Nemes, Attila; Nagothu, Sekhar (Bioforsk Rapport;, Research report, 2014)
      Rice is the staple food in Bangladesh and crucial for the food security in the country. The alluvial soil deposits, through an extensive river network across Bangladesh, have contributed to a fertile land with high rice ...
    • Climate change and vulnerability in Bangladesh 

      Xenarios, Stefanos; Nemes, Attila; Nagothu, Sekhar; Sarker, G.; Biswas, J.; Maniruzzaman, Md (Bioforsk TEMA;, Research report, 2014)
      It is predicted that climate change will aggravate the presence of sudden (e.g. cyclones, floods etc.) and chronic (e.g. drought, erosion) hazards to agrarian communities in Bangladesh. According to the Intergovernmental ...
    • Climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation: Sustaining rice production in Bangladesh 

      Nagothu, Sekhar; Nemes, Attila; Biswas, Jatish Chandra; Sarker, Motaleb H. (Bioforsk Rapport;, Research report, 2014)
      The current study has indicated the most prioritized interventions to be taken against climate change in Bangladeshi rice growing areas prone to drought and salinity events. The suggested methodology managed to evaluate ...
    • The effect of various metal-salts on the sedimentation of soil in a water-based suspension 

      Sebok, Andras; Labancz, Viktoria; Czinkota, Imre; Nemes, Attila (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-01-14)
      Soil particles and bound nutrients that erode from agricultural land may end up in surface waters and cause undesirable changes to the environment. Various measures, among them constructed wetlands have been proposed as ...
    • Estimating the Permeability of Naturally Structured Soil From Percolation Theory and Pore Space Characteristics Imaged by X-Ray 

      Koestel, John; Dathe, Annette; Skaggs, Todd H.; Klakegg, Ove Mindor; Ahmad, Muhammad Arslan; Babko, Maryia; Giménez, Daniel; Farkas, Csilla; Nemes, Attila; Jarvis, Nicholas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-30)
      The saturated hydraulic conductivity of soil, Ks, is a critical parameter in hydrological models that remains notoriously difficult to predict. In this study, we test the capability of a model based on percolation theory ...
    • Pedotransfer functions in Earth system science: challenges and perspectives 

      Van Looy, Kris; Bouma, Johan; Herbst, Michael; Koestel, John; Minasny, Budiman; Mishra, Umakant; Montzka, Carsten; Nemes, Attila; Pachepsky, Yakov A.; Padarian, José; Schaap, Marcel G.; Tóth, Brigitta; Verhoef, Anne; Vanderborght, Jan; van der Ploeg, Martine J.; Weihermüller, Lutz; Zacharias, Steffen; Zhang, Yonggen; Vereecken, Harry (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-14)
      Soil, through its various functions, plays a vital role in the Earth’s ecosystems and provides multiple ecosystem services to humanity. Pedotransfer functions (PTFs) are simple to complex knowledge rules that relate available ...
    • Process-based eco-hydrological modelling of nutrient loads to the Baltics from three Estonian catchments 

      Farkas, Csilla; Elken, Rain; Garcia Diaz, Juan Manuel; Vassiljev, Anatoli; Nemes, Attila; Deelstra, Johannes; Porman, Andreas; Pedusaar, Tiia; Stålnacke, Per; Ennet, Peeter (Research report, 2017)
      It is now evident that fresh- and marine-water ecosystems have long been overloaded by nutrients that originate, among others, from land-based agriculture, and the manifold point-type anthropogenic sources, such as waste-water ...
    • Renseeffekt og kanterosjon i kantsoner med forskjellig vegetasjonstype 

      Krzeminska, Dominika; Blankenberg, Anne-Grete Buseth; Bøe, Frederik; Nemes, Attila; Skarbøvik, Eva (NIBIO Rapport;6(30) 2020, Research report, 2020-03)
      Kantsoner langs vassdrag har flere ulike funksjoner; i dette prosjektet er to funksjoner undersøkt (renseeffekt på næringsstoffavrenning fra jordbruksområder, og evne til å motstå kanterosjon), i tre typer vegetasjon: ...
    • Socio-ecological vulnerability assessment of flood and saline-prone region in rural Bangladesh 

      Xenarios, Stefanos; Sarker, Golam Wahed; Nemes, Attila; Nagothu, Sekhar; Biswas, Jatish Chandra; Maniruzzaman, Md (Bioforsk Rapport;, Research report, 2014)
      The current study attempted to quantitatively measure the vulnerability status of selected regions in Bangladesh impacted by climate change. Three upazilas were selected in the drought prone region of Rajshahi, while another ...
