Description - The Hydrology of the UK by Mike Acreman
This text assesses the changing hydrology of the UK, focusing on key issues that affect fundamental hydrological processes and have important implications for water resource management, flood risk and environmental quality. The book is divided into three sections covering: the causes of change to the hydrology of the UK, including the impact of climate change, land use and geomorphological change and dam construction; the effects of these pressures on UK rivers, goundwater, lakes, ponds, reservoirs and wetlands, looking at water quality, degradation, pollution and protection; and the responses of goverment organizations responsible for planning and management of water, including environment agencies.
