Product description

Drought forecasting and management are major issues in current water resources management. Drought severity relates not only to environmental conditions (i.e. hydrometeorological and hydrological factors) but also to human-use factors (i.e. the way in which water is stored, distributed and used for domestic, industrial and agricultural purposes) and ecological factors (i.e. impacts on fisheries, conservation areas and recreation). Drought awareness has increased, particularly since 1950, because of increasing human pressures on water resources and most recently with the recognition of the affects of abstraction on river levels and river ecology. With the increasing concerns about (i) global warming and the uncertainty of hydrological impacts at the regional scale, and (ii) water allocation to meet ecological needs, water resources management in a droughty environment has become a highly topical issue.

Review quote

"An unqualified delight . . . [It] maintains the mix of comic and dramatic throughout." --Allan Hunter, "Screen International""A wickedly funny high school comedy . . . This tart tale of an audaciously clever prep school kid . . . has all the makings of a cult hit . . . nearly everything hits the bull's-eye here, a rarity in screen comedy these days." --Todd McCarthy, "Variety"
