2005 | 331 Pages | ISBN: 0470858141 | PDF | 35 MB
A comprehensive overview ofinteraction ofthe major hydrological and meteorological processes in mountain areas ie Cryosphere and Climatic Change, Snow Melt and Soil Water, Run-off and Floods, Water fluxes and Water Balance, Hydro-meteorological Coupling and Modelling. Each section will reviewrecent research in the field and illustrate key interactions with case studies from mountainous regions in Europe, The Americas and Central Asia.Content: Chapter 1 Alpine Climate Change and Cryospheric Responses: An Introduction (pages 1-4): Roger G.
