Abstract

Urbanization disrupts the natural hydrological cycle and creates problems concerning the quality, quantity and distribution of water. Urbanization causes changes in the microclimate, the ground's hydrological response, the quality and quantity of groundwater, and the water balance. Urbanization often makes it necessary to transfer water from other regions. There is presently a great need for research on urban hydrology. The use of statistical and mathematical methods, especially systems analysis, has spurred progress in certain areas of hydrology.
