aquifer pollution Books

  • Soil and Aquifer Pollution

    The contamination of soils and groundwater by petroleum is a growing problem, not only for the oil-producing countries. This book describes the possible approaches for preventing such pollution or, if it occurs, for its reclamation. It combines the knowledge and experience of scientists - providing scientific methods - on the one hand, and ...

  • Cause and Prevention of Clogging of Wells Abstracting Groundwater from Unconsolidated Aquifers

    Part of Groundwater Set - Buy all six books and save over 30% on buying separately!  Groundwater serves many purposes. It is a source of public and private drinking water, it is utilized as an industrial feedstock and it is used in agriculture for irrigation and cattle watering. The abstraction of groundwater also serves many civil engineering ...

  • Deep Trouble: The Hidden Threat of Groundwater Pollution

    A Global Sampler of Groundwater PollutionIndia's Central Pollution Control Board surveyed 22 major industrial zones in the late-1990s and found that groundwater in every one of them was unfit for drinking. (p. 32)In the northern Chinese provinces of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, and Shandong, nitrate concentrations in groundwater exceeded the health ...

  • Field Methods for Geologists and Hydrogeologists

    The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping ...

  • Transport of Escherichia Coli in Saturated Porous Media

    When wastewater infiltrates into the soil, groundwater may be contaminated. If the distance from source of pollution to point of groundwater abstraction is small, there is a real chance of abstracting pathogenic microorganisms. This book studies the transport of Escherichia coli in aquifers under saturated conditions. The author uses the well ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 15: Groundwater a Threatened Resource

    This publication is intended to explain to readers how important groundwater is, the extent of the threat to it, and the actions that can be taken to protect it.The world's water is one of our most precious resources. Lack of water is one of the principal causes of delayed development. Polluted water is one of the biggest killers we know, ...

  • Groundwater in international law. Compilation of treaties and other legal instruments (En)

    Series: FAO Legislative StudiesGroundwater is of high social, economic, environmental and strategic importance. It represents about ninety-seven percent of the fresh water resources available on earth, excluding the water locked in the polar ice. Aquifers, among them numerous transboundary ones, are coming under growing pressure from ...

  • Agricultural Use of Groundwater

    Groundwater is endangered and polluted in several ways. Conservation and better management of this invisible resource should be a key ingredient of sustainable water policies. This is especially true in areas, such as many Mediterranean regions, which are already exposed to scarcity problems and which are likely to experience increasing ...
