FACING THE THREAT: CLIMATE CHANGE

Facing the Threat: Climate Change

As part of its activities in water sciences research, and those of the UNESCO Chair on Hydrometeorological Risks, the University of the Americas Puebla has published the book Facing the Threat: Climate Change, which brings an important collection of papers related to hydro-meteorological risks and climate change.

The book's editor has been Dr. Jose A. Raynal Villaseñor, with the co-edition of Drs. María Elena Raynal-Gutiérrez, Dr. Benito Corona-Vasquez, Dr. Polioptro F. Martínez-Austria and Dr. Carlos Patiño-Gómez, all of them members of the UNESCO Chair in Hydrometeorological Risks.
