Abstract

Water, particularly fresh water, is obviously a major influence in our lives but only hits the headlines when there is too much or too little.  Several times over the last decade and especially during 2014 we have definitely had “too much” and river management has been blamed, making this book extremely topical.  The authors of Rivers do not conclude (as some others do) that floods and droughts have got worse due to climate change but point out that human activities affecting rivers over much of recent history have contributed to the effects of more extreme weather events.
