Water in Karst: Management, Vulnerability, and Restoration
By Neven Kresic
This text addresses the unique challenges related to the characterization, management, and protection of karst aquifers.
Karst aquifers are present on all continents and this book describes karst hydrogeology and hydrology, surface water-groundwater interactions, site investigation, data collection, delineation of drainage areas, groundwater extraction, regulatory issues, and water vulnerability and restoration.
Predictive modeling methods and solutions are presented. Photos, diagrams, and an eight-page color insert are featured as well, illustrating the concepts presented.
The text is written by the co-chair of the Karst Commission of the International Association of Hydrogeologists.
