Water Resources in Mexico: Scarcity, Degradation, Stress, Conflicts, Management, and Policy

Water assets in Mexico are threatened through shortage, pollutants and weather swap. In twenty years water intake doubled, generating water rigidity in dry seasons and semi-arid and arid areas. Water rigidity rises because of actual and monetary tension. In seven components a multidisciplinary group analyzes hydrological methods in basins and their interplay with weather, soil and biota.

Environ. Res. , 47 (2008). edu Jose D. edu Stochastic simulation and forecasting of hydroclimatic processes, such as precipitation and streamflow, are vital tools for risk-based management of water resources systems. Stochastic hydrology has a long and rich history in this area. The traditional approaches have been based on mathematical models with assumed or derived structure representing the underlying mechanisms and processes involved. The model generally includes several variables and a parameter set.

They have advantages over traditional Fourier methods in analyzing physical situations where the signal contains discontinuities and sharp spikes, which are commonplace in hydrology. 147-161 Among the areas and problems of hydrology where wavelets have been employed are precipitation fields and variability, river flow forecasting, streamflow simulation, rainfallrunoff relations, drought forecasting, suspended sediment discharge, and water quality. g. Fourier transforms). Nevertheless, there remain serious concerns on the lack of physical interpretation of the results from wavelet analysis.
