KUNSKAPSFÖRSÖRJNING AV 2000-TALETS SVENSKA SAMHÄLLSPLANERING AVSEENDE VATTEN- KUNSKAPSBEHOV I ETT 20-ÅRS PERSPEKTIV
Hydrological knowledge is scattered in many central, regional and local authorities and with consultants and researchers. In spite of a tendency towards an integrated view on hydrological issues the different expertise units will probably remain in power also in the year 2000. The separate hydrological topics probably benefit from this situation. Data on surface water, groundwater, atmospheric water etc. will be integrated in common data banks, and the accessibility of these data will be improved. The interdependency of different waters will be stressed more. For the future, the supply of knowledge will be sufficient for many municipal considerations. The correct interpretation of the knowledge, though, may be hampered by the lack of competence in the user. Therefore courses and seminars will be increasingly important.
