Impacts of Land Use Change on Water Resources

Water Resources Research, vol. 45, no. 7, 2009

Changes in land use have potentially large impacts on water resources, yet quantifying these impacts remains among the more challenging problems in hydrology. Water, food, energy, and climate are linked through complex webs of direct and indirect effects and feedbacks.
