Calcium and Magnesium in Groundwater: Occurrence and Significance for Human Health

Calcium and Magnesium in Groundwater: Occurrence and Significance for Human Health

Lidia Razowska-Jaworek

June 17, 2014

Calcium and magnesium are abundant in groundwater, but the role of groundwater as the essential source of these important nutrients is very often neglected. Hydrogeochemical studies have focused mainly on the distribution and behaviour of constituents that cause deterioration of water quality, such...

Modelling Groundwater Systems: Understanding and Improving Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management

Modelling Groundwater Systems: Understanding and Improving Groundwater Quantity and Quality Management

Girma Yimer Ebrahim

May 14, 2014

Groundwater is increasingly subjected to excessive over-exploitation and contamination in many parts of the world. It faces the challenge of balancing its multiple functions in a sustainable manner. This thesis explores several specific problems related to contaminant migration, groundwater-surface...

Guidelines for Evaluating Water in Pit Slope Stability

Geoff Beale, John Read

January 24, 2014

Guidelines for Evaluating Water in Pit Slope Stability is a comprehensive account of the hydrogeological procedures that should be followed when performing open pit slope stability design studies. Created as an outcome of the Large Open Pit (LOP) project, an international research and technology...

Water Resources Strategies to Increase Food Production in the Semi-Arid Tropics: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

Water Resources Strategies to Increase Food Production in the Semi-Arid Tropics: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

David Love

December 15, 2013

Water demand in southern Africa continues to rise, as urban areas expand and as agricultural water demand rises to meet the millennium development food security goals. Water resource availability in the northern Limpopo Basin has declined over the last 30 years, and will decline further under...

Thermal Use of Shallow Groundwater

Thermal Use of Shallow Groundwater

Fritz Stauffer, Peter Bayer, Philipp Blum, Nelson Molina Giraldo, Wolfgang Kinzelbach

December 12, 2013

The thermal use of the shallow subsurface is increasingly being promoted and implemented as one of many promising measures for saving energy. A series of questions arises concerning the design and management of underground and groundwater heat extraction systems, such as the sharing of the thermal...

Soil and Water Contamination, Second Edition gives a structured overview of transport and fate processes of environmental contaminants. Dealing with all topics essential for understanding and predicting contaminant patterns in soil, groundwater and surface water, it contributes to the formation of...

Assessing and Managing Groundwater in Different Environments

Assessing and Managing Groundwater in Different Environments

Jude Cobbing, Shafick Adams, Ingrid Dennis, Kornelius Riemann

October 10, 2013

This collection of papers is a snapshot of modern hydrogeology in which highly technical methods and approaches sit side-by-side with overlapping legal, social, organisational, institutional and governance considerations. Groundwater is integral to many human and environmental systems. Indeed,...

Groundwater and Ecosystems

Groundwater and Ecosystems

Luis Ribeiro, Tibor Y. Stigter, Antonio Chambel, M. Teresa Condesso de Melo, Jose Paulo Monteiro, Albino Medeiros

June 13, 2013

Groundwater resources are facing increasing pressure from consuming and contaminating activities. There is a growing awareness that the quantitative and qualitative preservation of groundwater resources is a global need, not only to safeguard their future use for public supply and irrigation, but...
