  • Environmental Impacts of Modern Agriculture

    Modern agriculture must seek to feed the world's growing population with little or no cost to the Environment. Modern agriculture is capable of producing greater yields than ever before, but intensification of agriculture does come at a price. This comprehensive volume examines the environmental impact made by agriculture in the 21st Century, ...

  • Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems

    Sewer systems constitute a very significant heritage in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant ...

  • Groundwater Contamination by Solvent Stabilizers: Remediation of 1,4 Dioxane

    While tremendous progress has been made in remediating sites that have been contaminated by chlorinated solvents, stabilizers that are added to chlorinated solvents in order to improve their performance have been overlooked. This book is the first to focus on the little-known contaminant 1,4 Dioxane. Written by the authority in the field, it ...

  • 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 ...

  • Environmental Forensics

    Environmental forensics' is a combination of analytical and environmental chemistry, which is useful in the court room context. It therefore involves field analytical studies and both data interpretation and modelling connected with the attribution of pollution events to their causes. Recent decades have seen a burgeoning of legislation designed ...

  • 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 ...

It begins with a broad overview of the situation in Africa highlighting topics of special significance to the continent and including broad country perspectives. The book includes specific case studies that substantiate the ...

  • Groundwater Pollution in Africa

    Groundwater pollution is a serious problem throughout the African continent. While this is not surprising, very little attention has been paid to the problem. Information on this threat to Africa's future is therefore not readily available. This book is a collection of thirty peer-reviewed papers on the topic, and provides a first glimpse of ...

With newly added and revised content, this volume maintains a broad and current scope of topics, from the history of hydrogeology to the latest trends in managing ...

  • Contaminated Ground Water and Sediment: Modeling for Management and Remediation

    Billions of dollars are spent annually on surface and groundwater remediation, generating a demand by the public and government for effective modeling of contaminant fate and transport, with the hope that accurate models will result in the effective application of remediation efforts-and an efficient distribution of remediation ...

  • Adsorptive Iron Removal from Groundwater

    A pilot study conducted at the Gilze water treatment plant of Water Supply North West Brabant demonstrated that adsorptive filtration has several potential advantages over floc filtration, namely: longer filter runs due to slower head loss development; better filtrate quality; shorter ripening time; and less backwash water use. In existing ...
