Resilience Analysis of Climate Change Effects on Water Quality and Health

Mustafa M. Aral

Abstract The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the application of the resilience methodology to analyze quantitative engineering problems and demonstrate how this analysis can be used in making policy decisions in water quality and climate change problems. The resilience thinking is a relatively new paradigm which has found its roots in the analysis of social-ecological systems. Engineering and thus quantitative applications of this conceptual framework is at its infancy and the topics discussed in this paper may shed some light to this path which is full of mathematical and computational difficulties.
