    schema:reviewBody ""Arid and semi-arid regions are defined as areas where water is at its most scarce. The hydrological regime in these areas is extreme and highly variable, where flash floods from a single large storm can exceed the total runoff from a sequence of years. Globally, these areas face the greatest pressures to deliver and manage freshwater resources. Problems are further exacerbated by population growth, increasing domestic water use, expansion of agriculture, pollution, and the threat of climate change. However, there is little guidance on the hydrology of arid areas, and none on the decision support tools that are needed to underpin flood and water resource management." "As a result, UNESCO initiated the Global network for Water and Development Information for Arid Lands (G-WADI), and arranged a workshop of the world's leading experts to discuss the hydrological modelling tools required to support water management in these areas. This book presents chapters from contributors to the workshop. It includes case studies from the world's major arid regions, including Africa, the Middle East, the USA, India, and Australia, to demonstrate model applications. It contains web links to tutorials and state-of-the-art modelling software. This volume will be valuable for researchers and engineers working on the water resources of arid and semi-arid regions."--BOOK JACKET." ;
