  1. Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Valentine Uwamariya

    In general, groundwater is a preferred source of drinking water because of its convenient availability and its constant and good quality. However this source is vulnerable to contamination by several substances. Acceptable quality limits relative to micropollutant contents in drinking water are...

  2. Advances in River Sediment Research

    Edited by Shoji Fukuoka, Hajime Nakagawa, Tetsuya Sumi, Hao Zhang

    Sediments, which constitute the surface of the Earth, start their journey to rivers with the energy obtained from rainfalls, fl oods and other natural processes. Due to transport of sediments, rivers develop with various appearances and functions, and play a crucial role in the activities of human...

  4. Groundwater around the World

    A Geographic Synopsis

    By Jean Margat, Jac van der Gun

    This book presents a unique and up-to-date summary of what is known about groundwater on our planet, from a global perspective and in terms of area-specific factual information. Unlike most textbooks on groundwater, it does not deal with theoretical principles, but rather with the overall picture...

  5. Shared Borders, Shared Waters

    Israeli-Palestinian and Colorado River Basin Water Challenges

    Edited by Sharon B. Megdal, Robert G. Varady, Susanna Eden

    This collection of papers examines water management in two of the world’s prominent, arid transboundary areas facing similar challenges. In the Middle East, the chronically water-short Israeli-Palestinian region has recognized the need both to conserve and supplement its traditional water sources....

  6. History of Hydrogeology

    Edited by Nicholas Howden, John Mather

    Series: IAH - International Contributions to Hydrogeology

    Lessons can be learnt from the past; from time to time it is useful for practitioners to look back over the historical developments of their science. Hydrogeology has developed from humble beginnings into the broad church of investigatory procedures which collectively form the modern-day...

  7. Hydrogeology

    Objectives, Methods, Applications

    By Éric Gilli, Christian Mangan, Jacques Mudry

    Hydrogeology, the science of groundwater, requires a multidisciplinary approach involving many other sciences: surface hydrology, climatology, geology, geography, physics, chemistry, biology, and more. This book takes a broad view, considers water as a single entity, and presents many...
