Groundwater Response to Changing Climate
Edited by Makoto Taniguchi and Ian P. Holman
As groundwater systems are vital to food production and many other ecosystem services, sustainable management of the systems requires understanding of how they might respond to changes in future climate. This book provides an up-to-date description of the relationship between groundwater behavior and ancient, historical, current, and future climates for a range of diverse aquifer systems around the world.
Recent developments of the response of groundwater systems to climate variability and climate change are highlighted, using contemporary field investigations, monitoring of aquifers, numerical simulations, and paleohydrogeological studies.
The book is ideal for consulting hydrogeologists and environmental scientists.
