CLIMATE CHANGE & WATER RESOURCES


Item #d97nov4

Special issue: CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER RESOURCES PLANNING CRITERIA, Climatic Change, 37(1), 313 pp., Sep. 1997 (Kluwer Academic Pubs.). Emanates from joint workshops funded by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, through an agreement with the Department of Interior and Resources for the Future. The introductory paper, annotated below, and the following one set the background for the following twelve papers on issue assessments, applications, and case studies. The final paper is a summary. The issue is edited by K.D. Frederick (Resources for the Future, 1616 P St. NW, Washington DC 20036), D.C. Major (Sarah Lawrence College, 1 Mead Way, Bronxville NY 10708), E.Z. Stakhiv (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Inst. for Water Resour., 7701 Telegraph Rd., Alexandria VA 22315). N.B. Addresses for first authors are given only once.

"Introduction," K.D. Frederick (address above), D.C. Major, E.Z. Stakhiv, 1-5.

This project considered how existing water resource planning and evaluation criteria should be altered in view of the potential for human-induced climate change. Overall, the existing guidelines for sensitivity analysis, scenario planning and decision analysis are appropriate, but new applications and extensions of some criteria may be warranted. These include nonstationarity, interest rates, and multiple objectives.
