Groundwater Response to Changing Climate

Makoto Taniguchi, Ian P. Holman
June 16, 2017

Groundwater systems are vital to both society and the environment, supporting food production and many other ecosystem services. Sustainable management of this vital resource for future generations requires a sound understanding of how groundwater might respond to the inevitable changes in future...

Engineering Hydrology of Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

Mostafa M. Soliman
June 14, 2017

The natural scarcity of water in arid and semiarid regions, aggravated by man-made factors, makes it difficult to achieve a reliable water resources supply. Communities in these areas pay the price for thousands of years of water manipulation. Presenting important insight into the complexities of...

Fuzzy Logic and Hydrological Modeling

Zekai Sen
June 14, 2017

The hydrological sciences typically present grey or fuzzy information, making them quite messy and a choice challenge for fuzzy logic application. Providing readers with the first book to cover fuzzy logic modeling as it relates to water science, the author takes an approach that incorporates...

Environmental Economics for Watershed Restoration

Hale W. Thurston, Matthew T. Heberling, Alyse Schrecongost
June 14, 2017

Whether addressing pollution problems or helping protect a specific use, watershed associations are finding that the competition for funds is getting harder. While we can grasp the value of our streams for fishing or kayaking and other services, or their cultural value, or their value to an...

Hydraulic Fracturing Wastewater: Treatment, Reuse, and Disposal

Frank R. Spellman
May 03, 2017

This book provides a balanced discussion about the wastewater generated by hydraulic fracturing operations, and how to manage it. It includes an in-depth discussion of the hydraulic fracturing process, the resulting water cycle, and the potential risks to groundwater, soil, and air. The “fracking”...

Field Hydrogeology: A Guide for Site Investigations and Report Preparation, Second Edition

John E. Moore
March 29, 2017

In recent years, the focus in hydrogeologic investigations has expanded to include aquifer sustainability as part of resource evaluations. While there are other books on the subject, Field Hydrogeology: A Guide for Site Investigations and Report Preparation provides the first integrated...

Manganese Removal from Groundwater: Role of Biological and Physico-Chemical Autocatalytic Processes

J.H. Bruins
December 15, 2016

In The Netherlands, Belgium and other European countries, manganese is removed by conventional groundwater treatment with aeration and rapid (sand) filtration. Such a treatment process is easy to operate, cost effective and sustainable, because it does not make use of strong oxidants such as O3,...

Groundwater is integral to many human and environmental systems but there are significant challenges in dealing with the impact of anthropogenic activities on groundwater systems. These challenges need innovative solutions. This book contains a wide range of content, from a discussion of the...

Methods for the Quantitative Assessment of Channel Processes in Torrents (Steep Streams)

Dieter Rickenmann
March 24, 2016

An important part of the risk management of natural hazards in mountain regions concerns the hazard assessment and the planning of protection measures in steep headwater catchments, i.e. torrent control and slope stabilization. Torrent processes in steep channels have their rightful place among the...
