About this book

Any sustainable groundwater development programme requires knowledge of the prevailing flow system, extending from local to regional scale. This book of selected papers, arising from the International Hydrogeologic Congress in Mexico in 2004, discusses integral groundwater management with scale flow issues and presents methods of defining, preventing, controlling and mitigating negative environmental impacts related to groundwater. It highlights specific issues such as trans-boundary groundwater flow, groundwater recharge, groundwater mining, and groundwater flow in thick aquifers, and stresses the importance of the sustainable development of groundwater and its social and economic implications.

Contents

Keynotes a. Evolution of palaeowaters in sedimentary basins and coastal aquifers; b. Groundwater flow system, subsidence and solute transport controls c. Groundwater flow system response in thick aquifer units; Chapters; 1. Integrative modelling of global change effects on the water cycle 2. Water management in transboundary hard rock regions 3. Combined use of indicators to evaluate waste-water contamination to local flow systems in semi-arid regions 4. Integrating physical hydrogeology, hydrochemistry, and environmental isotopes to constrain regional groundwater flow 5. The South African groundwater decision tool 6. Causes and implications of the drying of Red Rock crater lakes, Australia 7. The development of a methodology for groundwater management in dolomitic terrains of South Africa

Biography

J. Joel Carrillo R. is the Professor of groundwater at the Institute of Geography, UNAM (Mexico) and obtained relevant experience in Australia. He and his students research a variety of hydrogeological issues related to the groundwater flow system analysis as applied to the definition of environmental problems from where agreeable solutions may be proposed. This systemic view of groundwater he also thoroughly been lectured in Latin America. He is the President of the IAH-Mexican Chapter. Adrian Ortega is Professor at the National University of Mexico. His research interest focuses on groundwater flow, origin, chemistry and solute and contaminant transport in high compressible closed basin aquitards, from detailed local field instrumentation sites to watershed scale.
