Hydrology 2020: An Integrating Science to Meet World Water Challenges

Front Cover
A milestone capturing the state of the art in hydrological science at the beginning of the 21st century, a chart for hydrologists exploring the new frontiers in hydrology, and a guide for those involved with developing and implementing water policies. It considers the capability that hydrological sciences will and should have by 2020, and what needs doing now in order to achieve this. There is an emphasis on societal issues and interdisciplinary work pertinent to hydrology as hydrologists cannot work in isolation from society.
