About this product
- DescriptionThe issues surrounding water quantity and quality of supply, and ecological conservation in its present and probable future forms are explored in this book. It also examines the questions of policy and technical responses to the problems addressed. The author describes the sources of water in Britain, as related to the physical environment and climate. He examines the effects of different land uses and industrial activities on groundwater and surface waters; explores the institutional, legal, administrative and technical means of solving problems of water quality and conservation; and looks at the possible future interactions between water resource management and conservation, both in Britain and worldwide. The final chapter looks at the possible effects of global climate change on water resources in Britain, Europe, North America and the tropics, providing a wider perspective.
