In the 17th century the Vistula was the most navigable river in Europe. After partitioning of Poland the Vistula lost its significance. Now the Lower Vistula should provide a navigation connection to the Europe...
This paper presents an estimate analysis of the hydropower potential of the lower Vistula River from Warsaw to Gdańsk Bay. The calculations were made for a hydraulic model of the lower Vistula which takes into account potential development of barrages in a cascade system. Results obtained from the model simulations and from hydrological calculations were used to estimate the power of hydropower plants and the average annual energy...
Rapid development of urban areas always comes with great side effects. One of them is the occurrence of urban floods. Growth of impervious surfaces in cities leads to increasing run-off values. This together with difficulties connected with sewage modernization in cities marks urban inundations as being one of the most important issues concerning urban water. Accurate prediction of a phenomenon is difficult as it is highly dependent...
