Overview

This text is the first international and comprehensive discussion of the impacts of climatic fluctuations and climate change on water resources management. The book presents an overview of the impacts of climatic change/fluctuations on a wide variety of water resources sectors including river runoff, water quality, water temperature, water use and demand, reservoir management and water resource planning and management. The book is unique in that it then presents a series of case studies to both demonstrate the application of climate change impact assessment methodologies and to provide insights to catchment, river basin, and national scale impacts of climate change/fluctuations on the water resources of Africa, Europe, and North America.
Audience: Researchers, scholars and students of hydrology and water management who are concerned with the issues of climate change as well as the climate change impact assessment community.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fifteen international contributions report on the state of the art of climate change impact assessment--as it existed in late 1993, when the first draft of the manuscript was prepared for review by a panel of international water resource experts, who apparently took awhile. The first six chapters examine a broad range of impacts, including not only hydrologic impacts, but also impacts on water use and demand, water quality, and water management. The following nine contributions are case studies. Suitable as a reference and also as a main or supplementary text for (well-heeled) upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in courses on such topics as climate, global, and environmental change.
