Forecasting is a technique that uses historical data as inputs to make informed estimates that are predictive in determining the direction of future trends. Eurasia comprises about 36% of the world’s total area and about 70% of the world population. Eurasia comprises Asia and Europe, although, geographically, it is a single continent with arbitrary geological borders. Eurasia has been a home to the world’s oldest civilizations and plays an important part in the mainstream history of the world. Eurasian countries have many common characteristics and forecasting of this region can prove to be of major help in integrated resources management, leading to sustainable development, optimum decision making of international world organizations and achieving goals of world peace. This book deals with the various aspects of social and environmental importance in this region, especially climate change and hydrological modelling and flood forecasting.
