About this book

Groundwater is the most important source of domestic, industrial, and agricultural water and also a finite resource. Population growth has created an unprecedented demand for water, with the situation most critical in the developing world, where several million people depend on contaminated groundwater for drinking purposes. Geogenic contaminants, such as arsenic and fluoride at toxic levels, pose major environmental risks and endanger public health. This book is a collection of papers providing a multi-disciplinary overview for scientists and professionals involved in the sustainable development of groundwater resources.


Preface I: Sustainable groundwater resources assessment & recharge processes II: Water and environment III: Groundwater modeling and its application in aquifer systems IV: Coastal groundwaters and impact of tsunami V: Arsenic and fluoride in groundwater VI: Groundwater management
