Realising the importance of mountains as environment of crucial significance for water resources both in local and regional scales, the Institute of Geography and Spatial Management – Jagiellonian University in Cracow, the Baltic University Programme and the Tatra National Park developed the 2nd Tatra Hydrological Workshop on Sustainable water resources management in high mountains in the Baltic Sea Region (10-13 June 2019, Zakopane, Poland). 

The aim of the workshop was to get relevant knowledge about monitoring and sampling techniques for analyzing hydrological processes, and organizing a monitoring network to control the influence of human activities (tourism, ski, water and energy supply municipal system) on the quantity and quality of water resources in high mountain catchments. 

This book relates to lectures given during the workshop and has been written to provide the participants with a wide-ranging overwiew of problems of water resource management in high mountain environments.
