This publication includes a choice of papers from a NATO complex learn Workshop entitled "Stochastic versions of hydrological methods and their purposes to difficulties of environmental maintenance" convened in Moscow over the interval 23-27 November 1998. The Workshop was once special in offering the 1st chance for over a decade for nations of the Russian Federation to engage with different nations the world over to debate hydrological technological know-how matters appropriate to environmental administration. The contrasting colleges of concept in the Russian Federation and with different nations proved a desirable and priceless event for these lucky adequate to wait. The clinical content material of the Workshop used to be influenced by way of a couple of matters. Water is a key traditional source whose modelling and administration is made complicated by way of its inherent spatial unevenness and time variability. conventional equipment for investigating hydrological approaches in nature hire stochastic modelling and forecasting. although those usually are not good constructed in regards to (i) representing the features of hydrological regimes, and (ii) investigating the effect of water components on strategies which come up in organic platforms and people related to hydrochemical, geophysical and different processes.
