Water at the Nexus of Inter- and Transdisciplinary Science
Edited by: Prof Michael Piasecki
Availability of and access to clean water is one of the central themes that is being discussed and researched by many on a global scale having garnered increased attention over the past couple of decades. It is not surprising therefore that water is considered a nexus at which many disciplines and interests intersect, be it hydrology, ecology, energy supply, public health, sociology, society in general, climatology, geology, economy, agronomy, and also, most importantly, politics. This first thematic series of Earth Perspectives collects contributions that highlight the pivotal role water plays in many societal settings as well as the earth sciences in general.
