Understanding the effects of climate change on water supply is crucial to formulating how best to manage our environmental resources.
R.T. WETHERALD & S. MAN ABE
Investigating the real and potential hydrologic effects of climate change on a global or regional basis requires the development of a reasonably accurate model of the environment.
CHARLES W. STOCKTON
Tree-ring analysis can be utilized as one means of obtaining such necessary environmental information as extended time series of precipitation data.
PETER H. GLEICK
Since higher concentrations of CO2 and trace gases alter the atmosphere’s radiative balance, their effects on climate, hydrologic balance and water resources must be determined.

Performing adequate model testing of designs when special circumstances exist may result in the savings of valuable construction time and costs.
Reinforcing and replacing an unstable foundation system without disrupting the structure’s function poses a problem that requires an inventive solution.
