Groundwater Resources 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 ...

  • Applied Groundwater Studies in Africa: IAH Selected Papers on Hydrogeology, volume 13

    Groundwater is Africa’s most precious natural resource, providing reliable water supplies for many people.  Further development of groundwater resources is fundamental to increasing access to safe water across the continent to meet coverage targets and reduce poverty. There is also an increasing interest in the use of groundwater for ...

  • Inverse Theory for Petroleum Reservoir Characterization and History Matching

    This book is a guide to the use of inverse theory for estimation and conditional simulation of flow and transport parameters in porous media. It describes the theory and practice of estimating properties of underground petroleum reservoirs from measurements of flow in wells, and it explains how to characterize the uncertainty in such estimates. ...

  • Groundwater for Sustainable Development: Problems, Perspectives and Challenges

    Designed to provide a common platform for sharing knowledge and experience, this book presents state of the art developments in the field of groundwater. Recognizing the importance of integrated water resources management, the text covers technical, environmental, legal, economic, and social aspects of groundwater resources management, ...

  • Global Water Dynamics: Shallow and Deep Groundwater, Petroleum Hydrology, Hydrothermal Fluids, and Landscaping

    All that makes this planet special is largely attributable to liquid water. Water in one form or another is found all over our planet, even encountered at depths of thousands of meters within the rocky crust. With a history of around four billion years, water has been around since the early days of Earth. Its presence in large amounts is unique to ...

  • Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces

    Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of water and greenhouse gasses. Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces ...

  • Chemical and Isotopic Groundwater Hydrology

    This updated and expanded edition provides a thorough understanding of the measurable properties of groundwater systems and the knowledge to apply hydrochemical, geological, isotopic, and dating approaches to their work. This volume Includes question and answer discussions for key concepts presented in the text and the basic hydrological, ...

  • Intensive Use of Groundwater:: Challenges and Opportunities

    This book is written by authors from different countries and disciplines. The scope is not only to present the conventional hydrogeological aspects of the issue, but more importantly, the ecological, legal, institutional, economic, and social challenges and opportunities of such intensive groundwater use. It should be clear that different ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 15: Groundwater a Threatened Resource

    This publication is intended to explain to readers how important groundwater is, the extent of the threat to it, and the actions that can be taken to protect it.The world's water is one of our most precious resources. Lack of water is one of the principal causes of delayed development. Polluted water is one of the biggest killers we know, ...

  • Groundwater

    This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various international experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. It comprehensively deals with the resource evaluation through remote sensing (RS) along with GIS, resistivity tomography for identification of ...

  • Groundwaters of New Zealand

    Groundwaters of New Zealandis the definitive new source for information on the groundwater resources of New Zealand. Written by many of New Zealand’s leading experts, the book covers varied aspects of groundwater research, assessment, use, and management in New ...

  • Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration

    Proven and Cost-Effective Groundwater Resource Restoration is a collection of papers presented at past international symposia organized by Battelle Memorial Institute. Considered by many to be the most important meetings in the field of groundwater and soil restoration, these events have been held annually since 1991. Regulators, researchers, and ...

  • Survey and Analysis of State Groundwater Classification Systems and Program Operations Report

    This report provides an analysis of state groundwater classification systems. The first phase of the report identifies the statutory and regulatory underpinnings of each state’s classification system. The second phase gives an in-depth examination of ten state programs in order to determine the relationship of classification to groundwater ...

  • Physics of Sedimentology

    Physics of Sedimentology explains sedimentological processes via the fundamental physics that underlies the actual mechanisms involved. The applicability of fundamental principles, such as Newton's Three Laws of Motion, the Law of Conservation of Energy, the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, and of other physical relations in hydraulics and ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
