This ecoregion, with few water bodies and rivers, represents the most arid part of the Transcaspian area. The arid rivers are characterized by low flow, uneven regime, and considerable fluctuations in the intensity of flow in the off-season. The fauna of inland water bodies is impoverished and mainly contains species that migrate or occasionally enter from the sea.

Amur River Basin: the last large Asian wilderness. Home to Kaluga Sturgeon, Japanese Crane, Mongolian Gazelle and Amur Tiger. Threatened by development. WWF is working on habitat protection, species conservation, law enforcement, integrated river basin management. Straddling the border between northeastern China and the Russian Far East, the Amur-Heilong region contains...

The Stikine River originates in the Cassiar and Stikine Mountains of northwestern British Columbia and drains a 51,000-square-kilometre basin before crossing the border with the United States on the Alaska Panhandle and discharging through several channels into the Pacific. The upper portion of the river basin is a semi-arid plateau of up to 1,900 metres in elevation,

Eau cristalline et pinède, les pieds dans l'eau, Bieuzy Mauffret et Cédric Bordes connaissent les bons coins de l'étang. Si l'on fantasme naturellement beaucoup sur les tropiques, l'hexagone regorge lui aussi de coins de paradis et parfois là où les wind surfeurs les attendent le moins. Jean Souville reporter-photographe de Wind, s'est penché sur le cas d'un plan d'eau intérieur du sud de la France avec des stats de vent incroyables.

The International Commission on the Protection of the Oder against Pollution (ICPO) is one of thirteen international commissions for the protection of rivers, lakes and seas whose catchment areas fall within the territories of more than one country. The ICPO was established on the basis of a Convention signed by the Governments of the Republic of Poland, the Czech Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany and by the European Community.

Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia occupy parts of the Juba and Shabelle River Basins in the Horn of Africa. In contrary to previous estimations, the total drainage area of the two basins was recently estimated to 805 100 sq. km. Running a distance of about 1500 km, the Shabelle rises in the Ethiopian Highlands, where annual rainfall exceeds 1000 mm.

In August 2002, the transnational Elbe (Czech: Labe) river catchment experienced the most severe economic damage ever caused by river flooding in Europe. The Elbe catchment suffers from a wide range of flooding issues that are typical for Europe, including flash-flooding in the mountainous regions and large inundation volumes in the lowlands.

Senqu/Orange river rises in the mountain region of Lesotho, traversing in a generally western direction nearly 2000km to the Atlantic Ocean and being joined half way by the Vaal river coming in from the north-east. Although the mountain region of Lesotho constitutes only 5% of the the total catchment of the Senqu/Orange river, it provides about 50% of the total catchment run-off.

The project focus is on the Volga river basin which comprises 40% of the population of Russia, 45% of the country’s industry and 50% of its agriculture. Some key facts and figures: -Eighty percent of Caspian Sea river discharge is from the Volga (UNEP); -Two point five billion m3 raw sewage and seven billion m3 treated sewage is discharged into the Volga river annually (Russian Ministry of Environment, 1996);

As big as the Caspian Sea as recently as 8,500 years ago, Lake Chad is now Africa's fourth largest lake, with a maximum extent of 25,000km². One of three major wetlands located within the Sudano-Sahelian zone (the others being the Niger River Inner Delta in Mali, and the Sudd Swamps in Sudan), Lake Chad is rather shallow and has been particularly susceptible to the increasing variability and irregularity of rainfall during the last 40 years.

The East African Rift System (EARS) is one the geologic wonders of the world, a place where the earth's tectonic forces are presently trying to create new plates by splitting apart old ones. In simple terms, a rift can be thought of as a fracture in the earth's surface that widens over time, or more technically, as an elongate basin bounded by opposed steeply dipping normal faults. ...

This site is devoted to water and environmental research works of Central Asia. There are many projects and results to report. Here can be found the most complete database kindly provided by scientists from different countries

The most saline of Africa's large lakes, Turkana is an outstanding laboratory for the study of plant and animal communities. The three National Parks serve as a stopover for migrant waterfowl and are major breeding grounds for the Nile crocodile, hippopotamus and a variety of venomous snakes. The Koobi Fora deposits, rich in mammalian, molluscan and other fossil remains, have contributed more to the understanding of paleo-environments than any other site on the continent.
