The Effects of Climate Change on the Value of Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems: The Rokua Esker, Northern Finland
Rokua in Northern Finland is a groundwater dependent ecosystem very sensitive to climate change and natural variability. As such, the water level of most of the lakes is a function of the level of the groundwater table of the esker which is naturally recharged. This chapter presents results from an application of a choice experiment and contingent valuation method regarding ground water quantity. General publicÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s elicited values highlight the importance of water management policy which contributes to the sustainability of groundwater dependent ecosystems.
