The inorganic and organic water constituents, often called color-producing agents (CPAs), responsible for water color are generally referred to as water quality parameters. Utilization of water color for assessment of water quality parameters can be achieved by using the established techniques in aquatic optics attained over many decades. Aquatic optics can be subdivided according to whether the natural water body is salty (marine), inland or fresh (limnological), or coastal (often brackish). The authors describe the transformation of water color under varying natural and anthropogenically-driven conditions and, for the first time in a quantitative manner, a closed circle of issues related to remote sensing of water quality in optically complex waters generally inherent to inland and marine coastal waters. Primarily, the text synthesizes the solutions of problems in remote sensing, incorporating mathematics, hydrobiology/hydochemistry, atmospheric optics and ecology.

This book summarizes the history of the human right to water, and it examines the main content and the obligations that derive from this human right. The main purpose of the recognition of the human right to water is to guarantee that everyone has access to sufficient, safe, and affordable drinking water to satisfy personal and domestic uses. The book discusses whether the human right to water is recognized as a derivative right or as an independent right at three levels - the universal, regional, and domestic levels - where human rights are recognized and enforced. At the domestic level a case study approach has been used with focus on Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Colombia. Freshwater resources are not static; they are constantly flowing and crossing international boundaries. This situation and the relative scarcity of water resources have a direct impact on a state's capacity to realize the human right to water. The human right to water is examined in a transboundary water context, where the use and management of an international watercourse in one riparian state can directly or indirectly affect the human right to water in another riparian state. For this reason, the book analyzes whether the core principles of international water law can be used to contribute to the realization of the extraterritorial application of the right to water.
