Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, Second Edition, Three Volume Set focuses on a variety of key areas surrounding inland waters, including the distribution of water on Earth, the properties of water, including the hydrologic cycle, the physics of water movement in lakes and rivers, the value of aesthetics to waterborne disease, metabolism of aquatic ecosystems and behavior of aquatic organisms, pollution conservation, diversity of organisms, and diversity and cycling of chemicals. New coverage of advances in the field over the last decade from the structures, functions, values of, and pressures on rivers, lakes, wetlands and ground waters, to the underlying concepts and theories are also included. Rather than a previously outdated A-Z approach used to list articles, the new edition has 270 articles—an increase of 10% from previously-arranged via a taxonomic approach within 7 thematic sections, thus allowing for greater serendipity and ease of navigation for the user. The book's Editors-in-Chief will put specific emphasis on the diversity of the entire team in respect to expertise, age, gender and geographic distribution.
