About the Authors
  • In Risk, Reliability, Uncertainty and Robustness of Water Resources Systems, thirty-five leading scientists provide state-of-the-art reviews of topical areas of research on water resources systems, including aspects of extreme hydrological events: floods and droughts, water quantity and quality, dams, reservoirs and hydraulic structures, evaluating sustainability and climate change impacts. As well as discussing essential challenges and research directions, the book will assist in applying theoretical methods to the solution of practical problems in water resources.

    • In the prestigious International Hydrology Series
    • Eminent and international contributors
    • Integration of multi-disciplinary perspective and usefulness for practical solutions of recent problems in water resources
