  • Groundwater and Ecosystems

    Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems (GDEs) frequently exhibit rich biological diversity and can provide enormous economic wealth. In recent years, GDEs in many industrialized countries have shown signs of serious degradation, primarily the result of groundwater abstraction and pollution. Many such systems, including a number of well documented cases ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Integrated Water Resource Management in Brazil

      The complex interactions between water resources, land-use change and water technologies are a major issue in many emerging countries of Southern America. Usable water resources are affected by natural conditions, such as, strong seasonal contrasts and high climatic variability, and rapid changes of land use and land cover that is caused by the ...

  • Hydrology and Water Resources of India

    India is endowed with varied topographical features, such as high mountains, extensive plateaus, and wide plains traversed by mighty rivers. Water is an important input in the socio-economic development of a nation. In India, this dependence is even more apparent, as 70% of her population is dependent on agriculture.Divided into four sections the ...
