About this book

Presents the first integrated contributions of delegates to the first IHP/IAHS George Kovacs Colloquium in connection with the study of global hydrology and climate change. Combining the disciplines of hydrologists, meteorologists and ecologists, the book deals with variations in time and space scales of the Earth's atmospherical, hydrological and terrestrial systems.

'! the book will be of great use to researchers with an interest in space and time scale variability. It will also be useful to those involved with climate modelling.' J. Nemec, Hydrological Sciences Journal 'This book should make a useful contribution towards bringing hydrology and meteorology closer together, giving hydrologists and meteorologists insight into the methods and philosophy of each other's subjects.' John H. C. Gash, International Journal of Climatology
