  • Subsurface Hydrological Responses to Land Cover and Land Use Changes

    Vegetation plays an important role in partitioning solar energy and water into the geosphere and the atmosphere. When changes occur in areas related to agriculture, urbanization and mining, the resulting changes in land cover and land use often lead to disturbances in both the atmosphere and the subsurface environment. This edited volume ...

  • Environmental Effects of Afforestation in North-Western Europe

    Afforestation of former arable land is currently a common change in land use in many European countries. In addition to wood production, the new forests will provide a variety of environmental services, such as carbon sequestration or improved water quality. At the same time there may be negative impacts, such as reduced groundwater recharge. The ...
