  • Hydrogeological and economical simulations: emergency water supply for Muscat

    Urban water in Gulf Cooperation Council countries is principally supplied from desalination plants. However, desalination could be interrupted by natural hazards such as cyclones or harmful algal blooms. Four scenarios have been considered to help public institutions in Muscat to establish a water strategy for emergency situations. The numerical simulations of groundwater pumping have shown that ...

  • Risk-Based Closure Considerations For Monitored Natural Attenuation

    ABSTRACT Recent advances in both the chemistry- and hydrogeology-based aspects of monitored natural attenuation (MNA) and in toxicology research have changed some of the traditional approaches to MNA for petroleum and chlorinated groundwater plume management. For MNA to be approved as a remedial approach, human health and the environment must still be protected. To demonstrate protection, ...

  • Evaluating groundwater/surfacewater transition zones in ecological risk assessments

    Currently, there is a common perception that the discharge of contaminated groundwater to a surfacewater body does not pose an ecological risk if contaminant concentrations in surface-water samples are below analytical detection limits or at very low concentrations. The transition zone represents a unique and important ecosystem that exists between surface-water and the underlying ground-water, ...

  • Area-differentiated modelling of excess nutrient and contaminant leaching risks at the river-basin scale using a hydrological approach in India

    Application of excess nutrients, such as fertilizers, is a significant and sometimes even major component of groundwater pollution. Diffuse inputs of nutrients and contaminants to the groundwater are related to runoff generated from precipitation on a catchment. This implies that the analysis of diffuse fluxes from the land surface to the groundwater requires an analysis of water fluxes for a ...

  • ATES: a geo-informatics decision aid tool for the integration of groundwater into land planning

    Groundwater is the primary source of drinking water for small municipalities and individuals. However, groundwater can be polluted by almost any land use. Consequently, many governments have acquired groundwater information in the aim of protecting the resource. Nevertheless, the resulting data are often ill-fitted to planning needs. In a previous study, a method was developed to help planners ...
