Water, Soil, Forests (The man who planted trees, III)

This is the presentation given for the annual day of forests. I am talking about the interaction of water (the hydrological cycle) with vegetation, soil and climate. As a modeller, I conclude about the challenge to model all of these complexities at various spatial and temporal scales. The other posts on the same topic are here.
