    Modelling of Pollutants in Complex Environmental Systems, Volume I

    Environmental modelling has enjoyed a long tradition, but there is a defined need to continually address both the power and the limitations of such models, as well as their quantitative assessment. This book showcases modern environmental modelling methods, the basic theory behind them and their incorporation into complex environmental ...

  • Groundwater Quality

    Groundwater quality monitoring and testing is of paramount importance both in the developed and developing world. This book presents a series of papers illustrating the varied nature of current research into groundwater quality. Urban and rural supplies are covered through a case history approach, and the importance of remedial action to ...

  • Groundwater Optimization Handbook

    Presents a thorough introduction to groundwater systems analysis and optimization terminology, principles, and techniques Identifies which S-O approaches are appropriate for different types of groundwater quantity (hydraulic optimization) and quality (contaminant transport optimization) problems, whether they be deterministic, stochastic, ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Urban Groundwater Management and Sustainability

    Urbanization modifies underlying groundwater systems. This often leads to adverse hydrological, water quality, geotechnical, and socio-economic effects which jeopardize sustainability. Indeed, for many urban aquifers world-wide, we do not know whether there even exist socially-acceptable sustainable hydrological systems. Given that around 50% of ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Physicochemical Groundwater Remediation

    As we transition into the 21st century, it is apparent that this is an exciting time for environmental engineers and scientists studying remediation technologies. There has been a rapid development of new ways to clean-up polluted groundwater. Research activities of the past and next 10 years will have a dramatic impact on the quality of the ...

  • Adsorptive Iron Removal from Groundwater

    A pilot study conducted at the Gilze water treatment plant of Water Supply North West Brabant demonstrated that adsorptive filtration has several potential advantages over floc filtration, namely: longer filter runs due to slower head loss development; better filtrate quality; shorter ripening time; and less backwash water use. In existing ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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, ...
