  1. Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

    By Prabhat Chandra Chandra

    In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often...

  4. Surface and Subsurface Runoff Generation Processes in a Poorly Gauged Tropical Coastal Catchment

    A Study from Nicaragua

    By Heyddy Calderon Palma

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    Hydrological research in humid tropics is particularly challenging because of highly variable hydrological conditions and high socio-economic stresses caused by rapid population increase, as is the case of Nicaragua. The objective of this research is to understand the surface and subsurface runoff...

  5. Land Degradation and Society

    Edited by Piers Blaikie, Harold Brookfield

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    Why does land management so often fail to prevent soil erosion, deforestation, salination and flooding? How serious are these problems, and for whom? This book, first published in 1987, sets out to answer these questions, which are still some of the most crucial issues in development today, using...
