Water Resources, Weather and Climate

Introduction to physical processes that influence the distribution of water in space and time within Aotearoa-New Zealand. Topics include mid-latitude weather and atmospheric precipitation processes that ultimately affect the availability of water across Aotearoa-New Zealand's diverse landscapes: a description of surface water resources; key hydrological processes acting on water and affecting its availability; utilisation and modification of hydrological systems and processes by human activities; and anticipated future changes in climate.
