Description
Prepared by the Surface Water Hydrology Technical Committee of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE.

This report provides a broad overview of the interaction between climate and water resources engineering. Complex water resource systems may ensure a continued safe and reliable water supply, but climate variations can stress these these systems and lead to water shortages and other problems. While many aspects of climate variation and its impact on water resources have been presented and published, the information is greatly dispersed and lacks a general overview.

This report highlights the current knowledge about climate variations and change, discusses the impact on water resources systems, characterizes its predictability, and provides examples of its use in water resources management, planning, and design. This information is supplied through ten detailed case applications that examine the value and potential of climate information in water resources investigations.

As the first book to address climate issues from the water resources engineering perspective, this report will be beneficial to water resources planners and managers, flood and drought preparedness agencies, irrigation district managers, and any others that rely on water resources budgeting, planning, and systems operations.
