Extreme Hydrology and Climate Variability: Monitoring, Modelling, Adaptation and Mitigation is a compilation of contributions by experts from around the world who discuss extreme hydrology topics, from monitoring, to modeling and management. With extreme climatic and hydrologic events becoming so frequent, this book is a critical source, adding knowledge to the science of extreme hydrology. Topics covered include hydrometeorology monitoring, climate variability and trends, hydrological variability and trends, landscape dynamics, droughts, flood processes, and extreme events management, adaptation and mitigation. Each of the book's chapters provide background and theoretical foundations followed by approaches used and results of the applied studies.
This book will be highly used by water resource managers and extreme event researchers who are interested in understanding the processes and teleconnectivity of large-scale climate dynamics and extreme events, predictability, simulation and intervention measures.
- Presents datasets used and methods followed to support the findings included, allowing readers to follow these steps in their own research
- Provides variable methodological approaches, thus giving the reader multiple hydrological modeling information to use in their work
- Includes a variety of case studies, thus making the context of the book relatable to everyday working situations for those studying extreme hydrology
- Discusses extreme event management, including adaption and mitigation
