Media reviews
'... a significant milestone in our knowledge of the world's water resources ... it will be of immense value to hydrologists worldwide, but also provides a source book for oceanographers and climatologists ... that will doubtless form the major source book of the next decade and deserves to be on the shelves of every university library.' The Eggs 'The global yet geographically explicit scope of this book makes it a highly valuable and ultimately essential update to related earlier publications. ... a landmark compendium for all involved in water resources research and management worldwide.' Dieter Gerten, Hydrological Sciences Journal
