Submarine Groundwater presents quantitative data relating groundwater contribution to the water/salt balance of regional and global bodies of water. It describes the role of groundwater discharge in the formation of the salt content in ocean, lake, and sea water. It also discusses the maintenance of optimal water, salt, temperature and hydrobiological regimes of inland seas and large lakes. This book examines different data-supported methodologies for studying submarine groundwater flow and discharge through personal case studies contributed by leading international scientists. This text is ideal for hydrologists, hydrogeologists, oceanographers, limnologists, and geochemists.
