Groundwater Level Monitoring Books

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Progress in Environmental Science, Technology and Management

    The key to national development and sustainable economic growth is human resource development at the required levels of expertise. This is particularly so in the areas of Environmental Science, Technology and Management, where education and training of personnel particularly for government and industrial sectors must cross the traditional academic ...

  • ASTM Standards Related to the Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Process, 2nd Edition (CD-ROM)

    This latest edition, available in print or CD-ROM, contains 22 ASTM guides, practices, and test methods, all of which address important elements of the Phase II environmental site assessment process. The standards cover many of the routine, day-to-day procedures and terminology used in properly evaluating a site to determine the presence or ...

  • More Urban Water: Design and Management of Dutch water cities

    Most urban water management systems were developed when precipitation was distributed more evenly throughout the year. High groundwater levels and excess water now result in flooded cellars and inaccessible infrastructure. Future urban water programmes focus on the restructuring and transformation of urban areas, with water management as an ...

  • Groundwater in Geologic Processes

    The second edition of this well received and widely adopted textbook has been extensively revised to provide a more comprehensive treatment of hydromechanics (the coupling of groundwater flow and deformation), to incorporate findings from the substantial body of research published since the first edition, and to include three new chapters on ...

  • geoENV II - Geostatistics for Environmental Applications

    This book contains selected contributions from the geoENV98 - the Second European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Sciences, held in Valencia, Spain in November 1998. This second book of the geoENV series illustrates the developments on geostatistics as applied to the environmental sciences which have occurred during the past ...

  • Environmental Hydrogeology, Second Edition

    Headlines continue to blare news of climate change, tangential catastrophic events, and dwindling energy resources. Written by respected practitioners, and geared to practitioners and students, Environmental Hydrogeology, Second Edition explores the role that hydrogeology can play in solving challenging environmental problems. New in the Second ...

  • Water-Rock Interaction: Proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Water-Rock Interaction, Kunming, China, 31 July - 5 August 2007

    The hydrosphere and lithosphere intersect in a zone a few kilometres wide at the earth´s surface, resulting in the formation of magmas, metamorphic rocks and mineral deposits, and placing important controls on the evolution of landscapes. This interaction imparts chemistry to waters and provides the essential environment for ecosystems to ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in Urban Watersheds

    This new book by leading U.S. stormwater experts is a guide to the main techniques for controlling pollutants from diffuse, mainly wet weather, sources. The volume provides a mass of valuable data on the removal efficiencies, costs, and design parameters of all main runoff control structures—from ponds to swales—for large developments to small ...

  • 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 ...
