About this book

The Terrestrial Water Cycle: Natural and Human-Induced Impacts is a comprehensive volume that investigates the changes in the terrestrial water cycle and the natural and anthropogenic factors that cause these changes. Terrestrial Water Cycle and Climate Change: Natural and Human-Induced Impacts brings together recent progress and achievements in large-scale hydrological observations and numerical simulations, specifically in areas such as in situ measurement network, satellite remote sensing and hydrological modeling. Our goal is to extend and deepen our understanding of the changes in the terrestrial water cycle and to shed light on the mechanisms of the changes and their consequences in water resources and human well-being in the context of global change.

Volume highlights include:
- Overview of the changes in the terrestrial water cycle
- Human alterations of the terrestrial water cycle
- Recent advances in hydrological measurement and observation
- Integrated modeling of the terrestrial water cycle

The Terrestrial Water Cycle: Natural and Human-Induced Changes will be a valuable resource for students and professionals in the fields of hydrology, water resources, climate change, ecology, geophysics, and geographic sciences. Terrestrial Water Cycle and Climate Change: Natural and Human-Induced Impacts will also be attractive to those who have general interests in the terrestrial water cycle, including how and why the cycle changes.
