Urban, agricultural, and environmental protection practices for sustainable water quality
Published Online: Jul 04 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1229
The focus on sustainability and water quality in agriculture, urban, and ecosystem development management is a small fraction of the general water sustainability articles published in these three areas. Outside of these subcategory searches, 1835 articles related to ‘sustainable + water + management + development’ and another topic, such as coastal management or fishing, creating an ‘other’ category.

Snow redistribution for the hydrological modeling of alpine catchments
Published Online: Jul 07 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1232
An accurate representation of snow redistribution by wind and avalanches in hydrological models is important: (i) to accurately simulate runoff as the snow cover variability has an impact on timing and magnitude of snowmelt runoff; and (ii) to avoid the formation of snow towers, i.e. multi‐year accumulation of snow at high elevations.

Picturing waters: a review of Photovoice and similar participatory visual research on water governance
Published Online: Jun 02 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1226
An example of participatory visual research on water governance: “There is only one borehole for the whole community, so if everyone used it there would be crowds and long queues. To get water, the people go to the dam and dig holes nearby to get water for drinking. They will not take water to drink from the dam itself as the animals also go there. The surface water is dirty but under it they find better water to drink”. © Kasim Atambire 2014 | PhotoVoice | Christian Aid | ‘MyPharm’ | Ghana
