    Population growth, industrialization, environmental mismanagement, and land degradation have led to droughts, poverty, and famine so that the need for space, food and key natural resources such as water has become the most critical issue in global development. The volumes in this set, originally published between 1980 and 1995:

    ·         Analyse water policy formation and implementation in England and Wales, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, the USA and at the level of the EU.

    ·         Provide a clear introduction to the oceanography and marine resources of the UK.

    ·         Discuss water resource development problems facing the arid areas of the world.

    ·         Explain data on river regimes and catchment characteristics.

    ·         Give information on water quality in both polluted and unpolluted rivers.

    ·         Present a full discussion of river channels and their erosion and sediment characteristics, and a consideration of river management problems in the distinctive British context.

    Together the volumes will prove a valuable resource for geomorphology students on advanced undergraduate courses on river behaviour and will also be of interest to students of hydraulics and sedimentology; civil and environmental engineering; river management and channel design; maintenance and management in the water industry and environment and sustainability.
