BOOK SERIES


IAH - International Contributions to Hydrogeology


About the Series

The International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) serves scientists, engineers and other professionals working in the field of groundwater resource planning, management and protection. IAH has two book series which are produced under the imprint of CRC Press in the Netherlands, part of the Taylor and Francis Group. IAH books have the common purpose of spreading the science and knowledge of hydrogeology and are products arising from IAH’s congresses and meetings, its commissions and networks, as well as a variety of other sources. Information is gathered from highly respected sources and include case studies, regional descriptions, analyses of sub-disciplines and outputs from major international programmes.

International Contributions to Hydrogeology
The second series, International Contributions to Hydrogeology, the ‘blue books’, includes monographs on sub-disciplines of hydrogeology as well as outlets for major international investigatory programmes and collections of papers within a broad theme of international interest.

Selected Papers
The first series is the Selected Papers, often referred to as the ‘green books’. These are collections of papers derived from Congress and other meetings which normally, but not always, were sponsored by IAH. They may also be a collection of papers derived from a programme of investigation that again need not necessarily have enjoyed direct IAH involvement.

History of Hydrogeology

History of Hydrogeology

Nicholas Howden, John Mather
November 29, 2012

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...

Climate Change Effects on Groundwater Resources: A Global Synthesis of Findings and Recommendations

Climate Change Effects on Groundwater Resources: A Global Synthesis of Findings and Recommendations

Holger Treidel, Jose Luis Martin-Bordes, Jason J. Gurdak
December 02, 2011

Climate change is expected to modify the hydrological cycle and affect freshwater resources. Groundwater is a critical source of fresh drinking water for almost half of the world’s population and it also supplies irrigated agriculture. Groundwater is also important in sustaining streams, lakes,...

Methods in Karst Hydrogeology: IAH: International Contributions to Hydrogeology, 26

Methods in Karst Hydrogeology: IAH: International Contributions to Hydrogeology, 26

Nico Goldscheider, David Drew
June 14, 2007

The importance of investigating karstified aquifers lies in their significance as a major source of drinking water. This book describes methods that are basic to all hydrogeological studies, such as hydraulic investigations, hydrochemistry, geophysics, isotope chemistry and modelling, but with the...

Introduction to Isotope Hydrology: Stable and Radioactive Isotopes of Hydrogen, Carbon, and Oxygen

Introduction to Isotope Hydrology: Stable and Radioactive Isotopes of Hydrogen, Carbon, and Oxygen

Willem G. Mook
October 20, 2005

The application of natural isotopes, stable as well as radioactive, has become a widespread tool for hydrological research, especially surface- and groundwater behaviour and exploration. By far the most common isotopes applied are those of the elements of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon, crucial in the...

Understanding Water in a Dry Environment: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 23

Understanding Water in a Dry Environment: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 23

Ian Simmers
January 01, 2003

In order to provide water security in the twenty-first century, there is universal agreement that a continuation of current policies and extrapolation of trends is not an option. Also clear is that from both water supply and development perspectives, the world's arid and semi-arid regions are those...

Urban Groundwater Pollution: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 24

Urban Groundwater Pollution: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 24

David Lerner
January 01, 2003

More than 50% of the world's population already live in cities, and the proportion is rising extremely rapidly towards developed country levels of more than 90%.  Groundwater from wells is the major source of water supply for many of these cities,  however, groundwater is polluted by the...

Managing Water Well Deterioration: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 22

Managing Water Well Deterioration: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 22

Robert McLaughlan
January 01, 2002

Effective management of a water well requires that the water well can meet a set of performance indicators.  These can include criteria related to water quality, yield, economics and asset life.  Water well deterioration due to fouling and corrosion impacts the ability of a well system to...

Karst Hydrogeology and Human Activities: Impacts, Consequences and Implications: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 20

Karst Hydrogeology and Human Activities: Impacts, Consequences and Implications: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 20

David Drew, Heinz Hötzl
January 01, 1999

One quarter of the world's population lives in karst terrains, yet karsts are highly vulnerable to stresses caused by human activity. This book surveys human impact on karst water, showing that the increasing pollution of the environment has, to a great extent, spoiled sensitive karst ecosystems....

Shallow Groundwater Systems: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 18

Shallow Groundwater Systems: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 18

Peter Dillon, Ian Simmers
January 01, 1998

Shallow groundwater systems are important as a source of water, for sustenance of stream baseflow, and for wetland and riparian ecosystems. They are also central to waterlogging, and dryland and irrigation salinity problems. Response time to hydrologic change and pollutant loadings is fast among...

Recharge of Phreatic Aquifers in (Semi-)Arid Areas: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 19

Recharge of Phreatic Aquifers in (Semi-)Arid Areas: IAH International Contributions to Hydrogeology 19

Ian Simmers, J.M.H. Hendrickx, G.P. Kruseman, K.R. Rushton
January 01, 1997

Groundwater use is of fundamental importance to meet the rapidly expanding urban, industrial and agricultural water requirements in (semi) arid areas. Quantifying the current rate of groundwater recharge and define its variability in space and time are thus prerequesites for efficient...
