About this book

This edited volume addresses the relationship between changes in land use and the delicate balance between water, solute, and heat cycles in basins. It examines evapotranspiration, the rate of groundwater recharge, discharge rates into rivers or oceans, and the moisture content of soils. The combined effect of these factors will have a significant impact on issues affecting the global environment.
