  • Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America

    Groundwater resources naturally contain rather high levels of arsenic in many parts of the world. During the last two decades, the As-containing groundwater in South-East Asia has received much attention. However, the situation seems to be equally important in Latin America, where the number of studies is still relatively low, and the extent and ...

  • Management of Shared Groundwater Resources

    Most of the world's freshwater resources in the liquid state (i.e. not in glaciers and polar caps) are underground. As the population grows and demand for water rises, reliance on groundwater increases. In many cases the groundwater underlies boundaries, or is part of a hydraulic system that crosses boundaries. In such cases there is always ...

  • Groundwater for Sustainable Development: Problems, Perspectives and Challenges

    Designed to provide a common platform for sharing knowledge and experience, this book presents state of the art developments in the field of groundwater. Recognizing the importance of integrated water resources management, the text covers technical, environmental, legal, economic, and social aspects of groundwater resources management, ...

  • Mtbe: Effects on Soil and Groundwater Resources

    Written by an expert team of scientists, engineers, and toxicologists, MTBE: Effects on Soil and Ground-Water Resources provides complete in-depth coverage of the assessment and potential remediation strategies of methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE). ...

  • The Economics of Groundwater Remediation and Protection

    Economic literature is often too theoretical for engineers and policymakers to put into practical use, while scientific literature on the remediation of contaminated aquifers rarely considers costs and benefits. Written by a hydrogeologist and an economist, The Economics of Groundwater Remediation and Protection integrates economics and ...

  • Applied Groundwater Studies in Africa: IAH Selected Papers on Hydrogeology, volume 13

    Groundwater is Africa’s most precious natural resource, providing reliable water supplies for many people.  Further development of groundwater resources is fundamental to increasing access to safe water across the continent to meet coverage targets and reduce poverty. There is also an increasing interest in the use of groundwater for ...

  • Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces

    Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of water and greenhouse gasses. Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces ...

  • Overexploitation and Contamination of Shared Groundwater Resources

    Forty percent of the world’s population depends upon increasingly scarce and shared water resources. This situation is critical at both international and national levels not only for socio-economic development, but also for the regional stability. The intensive use of groundwater for irrigation and water supply is adding pressures to scarce water ...

  • Land Use Policy and Practice on Karst Terrains

    Land use decisions in karst terrains can have immediate and serious impacts on the local landscape and groundwater resources. The existing literature on karst and land use can be very difficult to locate in the journals of any of a half-dozen different disciplines. This book brings the interdisciplinary knowledge together in one place, in a format ...

  • 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, ...

  • Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration

    Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration is a collection of papers presented at past international symposia organized by Battelle Memorial Institute. Considered by many to be the most important meetings in the field of groundwater and soil restoration, these events have been held annually since 1991. Regulators, researchers, and ...

  • Groundwater

    This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various international experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. It comprehensively deals with the resource evaluation through remote sensing (RS) along with GIS, resistivity tomography for identification of ...

  • Isotopes in the Water Cycle

    Environmental isotope and nuclear techniques provide unmatched insights into the processes governing the water cycle and its variability under past and present climates. This monograph is recommended to advanced students and specialists and presents historical perspective, state of the art applications and new developments of isotopes in ...

  • Modeling Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport

    In many parts of the world, groundwater resources are under increasing threat from growing demands, wasteful use, and contamination. To face the challenge, good planning and management practices are needed. A key to the management of groundwater is the ability to model the movement of fluids and contaminants in the subsurface. The purpose of this ...

  • Floods and Droughts

    Floods and Droughts: the New Zealand Experiencesummarizes the wealth of observation and analysis of floods and droughts in New Zealand. Chapters are contributed by 20 hydrological scientists and water resources professionals, who have worked on many different aspects of floods and droughts. Some chapters present observations of historically ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...
