  • Hydropolitical Vulnerability and Resilience along International Waters - Africa

    In Africa, most rivers, freshwater lakes, and aquifers are shared by two or more countries. The diversity of politial, social, and economic structures and organizations among African countries and the varied temporal preciptation and distribution of water on the continent make hydropolitical setting very complex and prone to vulnerability.African ...

  • Practical Handbook of Environmental Site Characterization and Ground-Water Monitoring, Second Edition

    Published in 1991, the first edition of The Practical Handbook of Ground-Water Monitoring quickly became the gold standard reference on the topic of ground-water monitoring. But, as in all rapidly evolving fields, regulations change, technology advances, methods improve, and research reveals flaws in prior thinking. As a consequence, books that ...

  • 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 ...

  • Applied Flow and Solute Transport Modeling in Aquifers: Fundamental Principles and Analytical and Numerical Methods
