  • How vulnerable is our groundwater?

    When water travels through soil and bedrock to the water table, it carries minerals, nutrients or chemicals from the surface with it. Environmental research is increasingly concerned with preferential flow, or the movement of water through pores and cracks at a faster rate and bypassing most of the surrounding material, either soil or fractured rock. A special section on preferential flow ...

  • Groundwater pollution in Europe: an overview

  • Groundwater footprint reveals unsustainable water consumption

    Reservoirs of water stored under the earth’s surface, otherwise known as groundwater, are a valuable resource. However, using a footprinting method, a new global study has indicated that about 1.7 billion people live in areas where groundwater is being used more quickly than it can be replenished. Groundwater supplies water to billions of people and is important for agricultural ...
