    The use of shallow geothermal energy (SGE) systems to acclimatize buildings has increased exponentially in the Netherlands and worldwide. In certain areas, SGE systems are constructed in aquifers also used for drinking water supply raising the question of potential groundwater quality impact. Impacts of Shallow Geothermal Energy on Groundwater ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Water of the Jordan Valley

    Natural saline water, waste water, and irrigation return flow endanger the groundwater aquifers in the Rift. In the long run this will ruin the socio-economic backbone of the settlements in the area. Sustainability of the water resources will only be achieved when the process of water replenishment and its underground flow is understood and water ...

Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping ...

  • Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context: Saph Pani

    Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context is based on the work from the Saph Pani project (Hindi word meaning potable water). The book aims to study and improve natural water treatment systems, such as River Bank Filtration (RBF), Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR), and wetlands in India, building ...

  • Transport of Escherichia Coli in Saturated Porous Media

    When wastewater infiltrates into the soil, groundwater may be contaminated. If the distance from source of pollution to point of groundwater abstraction is small, there is a real chance of abstracting pathogenic microorganisms. This book studies the transport of Escherichia coli in aquifers under saturated conditions. The author uses the well ...

  • Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology

    Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology synthesizes the research of specialists into a comprehensive review of the application of environmental tracers to the study of soil water and groundwater flow. The book includes chapters which cover ionic tracers, noble gases, chlorofluorocarbons, tritium, chlorine-36, oxygen-18, deuterium, and ...

  • Cause and Prevention of Clogging of Wells Abstracting Groundwater from Unconsolidated Aquifers

    Part of Groundwater Set - Buy all six books and save over 30% on buying separately!  Groundwater serves many purposes. It is a source of public and private drinking water, it is utilized as an industrial feedstock and it is used in agriculture for irrigation and cattle watering. The abstraction of groundwater also serves many civil engineering ...

  • Groundwater Dynamics in Hard Rock Aquifers

    The apparent heterogeneities and complexities present in the hard rock aquifers makes it a challenging research to tackle groundwater problems. The intricacy increases manifold for the management of groundwater when the hard rock aquifers are situated in arid or semi-arid regions. The demand supply gap has led to the over abstraction of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks

    Hydrogeology is a topical and growing subject as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. More than half of the surface area of continents is covered with hard rocks of low permiability.This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding the hydrogeological characteristics of rocks, as well as ...

  • 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 ...

  • Urban Groundwater, Meeting the Challenge: IAH Selected Papers on Hydrogeology 8

    Broadly divided into five sections, this book covers recharge mechanisms and the urban water balance, urban recharge management, sewer exfiltraion, assessment of contaminant impacts, and urban aquifer management. It explores the scientific and technical progress made in areas such as the urban water balance, contaminant source characterization and ...

  • Deep Trouble: The Hidden Threat of Groundwater Pollution

    A Global Sampler of Groundwater PollutionIndia's Central Pollution Control Board surveyed 22 major industrial zones in the late-1990s and found that groundwater in every one of them was unfit for drinking. (p. 32)In the northern Chinese provinces of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, and Shandong, nitrate concentrations in groundwater exceeded the health ...
