  • Impacts of Shallow Geothermal Energy on Groundwater Quality

    The use of shallow geothermal energy (SGE) systems to acclimatize buildings has increased exponentially in the Netherlands and worldwide. In certain areas, SGE systems are constructed in aquifers also used for drinking water supply raising the question of potential groundwater quality impact. Impacts of Shallow Geothermal Energy on Groundwater ...

  • Groundwater Pollution in Africa

    Groundwater pollution is a serious problem throughout the African continent. While this is not surprising, very little attention has been paid to the problem. Information on this threat to Africa's future is therefore not readily available. This book is a collection of thirty peer-reviewed papers on the topic, and provides a first glimpse of ...

  • Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution

    'Building on the success of its 1993 predecessor, this 2nd edition of Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution has been thoroughly re-written, updated and extended into a complete and authoritative account of modern hydrogeochemistry. Offering a quantitative approach to the study of groundwater quality and the interaction of water, minerals, gases, ...

  • Ideas for groundwater management

    Groundwater is the earth’s largest accessible store of fresh water. The volume is almost 100 times that of surface water. In recent decades use of groundwater has grown exponentially. Over 2 billion people depend on it for their daily supply. Not only have population increases and economic growth laid claim to an ever larger share of groundwater, ...

  • Groundwater in Fractured Rocks

    Comprising 44 chapters by authors from 22 countries, this book focuses on the hydrogeology of fractured environments. This compendium discusses the key issues, methodologies, and techniques in the field of hydrogeology of fractured (hard) rocks, summarizing results achieved in recent years as well as stimulating ideas and considerations on future ...

  • Groundwater 2000: Proceedings of the International Conference on Groundwater Research, Copenhagen, Denmark, 6-8 June 2000

    These proceedings, with cd-rom, present a comprehensive overview of advances in groundwater research.  The five main topics covered are: aquifers and contaminant distribution; groundwater quality; natural attenuation; remediation technologies and groundwater protection.  Groundwater 2000 is a useful resource to both scientists and to ...

  • The Use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in Urban Watersheds

    This new book by leading U.S. stormwater experts is a guide to the main techniques for controlling pollutants from diffuse, mainly wet weather, sources. The volume provides a mass of valuable data on the removal efficiencies, costs, and design parameters of all main runoff control structures—from ponds to swales—for large developments to small ...

  • Theory, Modeling and Experience in the Management of Nonpoint-Source Pollution

    Nonpoint-source pollution (NPSP) poses a special challenge to society's ability to manage its collective environmental good - especially surface and groundwater quality. Since there is no 'point', such as an outfall pipe, from which the pollution is being discharged and can be measured, pollution can reach the ambient environment without ...

    Petrophysical Properties of Permeable and Low-permeable Rocks.- Seismic Methods.- Geoelectrical Methods.- Complex Conductivity Measurements.- Electromagnetic Methods.- The Transient Electromagnetic Method.- Ground Penetrating Radar.- Magnetic Resonance Sounding.- Magnetic, Geothermal, and Radioactivity Methods.- Radiomagnetotellurics.- ...

  • Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

    Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) is a new approach to managing the entire urban water cycle in an integrated way, a key to achieving the sustainability of urban water resources and services. The IUWM incorporates: the systematic consideration of the various dimensions of water, including surface and groundwater resources, quality and ...

  • Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks

    Hydrogeology is a topical and growing subject as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. More than half of the surface area of continents is covered with hard rocks of low permiability.This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding the hydrogeological characteristics of rocks, as well as ...

  • Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Regions: UNESCO-IHP

    The Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) is an emerging approach to managing the entire urban water cycle in an integrated way, which is key to achieving the sustainability of urban water resources and services. The IUWM incorporates: the systematic consideration of the various dimensions of water, including surface and groundwater resources, ...

  • 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, ...

  • Environmental Systems Engineering and Economics

    Environmental Systems Engineering and Economics emphasizes the application of optimization, economics, and systems engineering to problems in environmental resources management. This senior level/graduate textbook introduces optimization theory and algorithms that have been successful in resolving water quality and groundwater management problems. ...

  • Decentralization and Coordination of Water Resource Management

    Centralized, top-down management of water resources through regulations has created unnecessary economic burdens upon users. More flexible decentralized controls through the use of economic incentives have gained acceptance over the past decade. The theme of this book is the increasing efforts throughout water-scarce regions to rely upon ...

  • Water Resources Management

    The world's water resources are being tapped at an ever increasing rate, to the extent that sustainability and water quality are being compromised. This book provides the technology for managing water resources to reduce risks. Besides controlling floods, overcoming droughts and reducing pollution, the reader will learn to plan and maintain ...

  • Groundwater Recharge from Run-off, Infiltration and Percolation

    Groundwater constitutes the most important reservoir of available clean water. Due to its overexploitation, some anthropogenic mismanagement on the surface and the overloading of the cleanup potential of subsurface, many of the groundwater systems used for water supply are in jeopardy. The problem is very severe in dry-lands, but also in urban, ...
