Climate and the Hydrological Cycle

Last modified November 21, 2008 10:51

An in-depth overview of the role of the hydrological cycle within the climate system, including climate change impacts on hydrological reserves and fluxes, and the controls of terrestrial hydrology on regional and global climatology. This book, composed of self-contained chapters by specialists in hydrology and climate science, is intended to serve as a text for graduate and postgraduate courses in climate hydrology and hydroclimatology. It will also be of interest to scientists and engineers/practioners interested in the water cycle, weather prediction and climate change.

Editors:  Marc Bierkens, Han Dolman and Peter Troch

Special Publ. 8 (2008) ISBN  978-1-901502-54-1  344 + xiv pp.  IAHS
