  • Describes climate change models and simulation, emissions scenarios, precipitation changes, and impacts on water resources
  • Covers the spatial and temporal analysis of hydrologic variables, long lead forecasting, and modeling of water resources
  • Discusses drought and flood analysis as related to a changing climate
  • Uses data sets, such as the output of General Circulation Model, to overcome the data scarcity in many regions of the world for climate change impact studies
  • Includes case studies throughout


This book presents a systematic approach to understanding and applying the principles of hydrology and hydroclimatology, examining the interactions among different components of the water cycle. It takes a fresh look at the fundamentals and challenges in hydrologic and hydroclimatic systems as well as climate change. The author describes the application of nontraditional data sets and new investigation techniques to water-related problems. He also examines long lead forecasting and simulation, time series analysis, and risk and uncertainty in hydrologic design.
