    PUBLICATIONS MDPI "Hydrology" Special Issue lauched
    Together with co-Guest-Editor Dr Eric Harmsen from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez I will Guest-edit a special issue for the Hydrology journal titled "Hydrology in the Caribbean Rim".

    The special issue seeks to explore and highlight hydrologic research that is carried out in the Caribbean region. The Caribbean stands to be adversely affected by Climate Change induced weather pattern changes that will see an overall reduction in precipitation, longer periods of draught and an increased number of extreme events such as tropical storms and Hurricanes. These changes will put stress on the available water resources for the general population and also tourism industry in addition to heavily impacting agro-business especially a the large populations that live off subsistence farming.
