Statistical analysis to detect climate change and its implications on water resources

Shanmugasundram, Sithranjan (2012) Statistical analysis to detect climate change and its implications on water resources. Research Master thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

Climate change has affected diverse physical and biological systems worldwide. The impact of climate change on water resources is one of the most important. Even though the world’s water resources are rapidly deteriorating due to the combined effects of climate change, population growth and fast urban development, climate change has been posing new challenges to water resources managers. Uncertainty of the climatic pattern is a major challenge for water authorities to formulate effective water management policies according to the prevailing and future climatic conditions.
