9. Soil water balance in the Sudano-Sahelian zone: summary proceedings of an international workshop. (bilan hydrique en zone Soudano-Sahelienne: comptes rendus d'un Atelier international)
Proc. of an Internat. Workshop, Niamey, Niger; ICRISAT, Patancheru, A.P. 502 324, 1991, 42 pp. LDC: 6.68 USD, HDC: 15.48 USD
This workshop aimed at evolving an effective synthesis of the state of water balance research in the Sudano-Sahelian Zone. It brought together scientists from different disciplines to share their experiences and to contribute to discussions.
Participants at the workshop discussed the issues concerning soil water balance in five technical sessions: Current Research and Future Implications; State of the Art of Soil Water Balance Research; Soils of the Sudano-Sahelian Zone; Soil Water Balance Studies in the Sudano-Sahelian Zone; and Operational Applications of Soil Water Balance
Monitoring and Prediction.
This volume presents summaries of the five sessions, reports of the planning groups that dealt with the main issues for future research and collaboration - new systems and sites, measurements and analysis of weather, crop, and soil data, modeling, technology transfer, and management - and 21 recommendations for action covering future studies on water balance, definition of minimum data sets, collection and dissemination of information modeling, and training.
