Présentation

This is the first comprehensive study of dead, dying and endangered lakes and seas all over the world. The book analyses the probable role of climatic and anthropic causes in past, present and future drastic bifurcations of lakes and seas on the basis of historical data, a vast amount of modern data obtained from extensive field surveys and remote sensing and extrapolations to the future with the help of sustainable development models and mitigation policies.

The book will interest research workers specialized in the prospects of sustainable development and the causes, climatic or anthropic, of severe alterations of lakes and seas with drastic consequences for regional and worldwide water resources
