Pressures are increasing on the availability and exploitation of fresh water resources due to population increase, pollution and degradation of resources, and variations in distribution as a result of regional and global change in the climate. A compilation of knowledge in this area, therefore, has become a prerequisite for education and training of research, as well as practising hydrologists. The Encyclopedia of Hydrological Sciences provides detailed, expert coverage of the subject.
