edited by R. Llamas and E. Custodio
copublished by A.A. Balkema and NGWA
What are the advantages and challenges of relying on groundwater in an increasingly populated world? Authors from 13 countries and five continents (including a contribution from Steve Ragone, Ph.D., NGWA's former science and technology director) present different perspectives on intensive groundwater use. Ecological, legal, institutional, economic, and social challenges and opportunities are addressed. This book is the outcome of the workshop on intensively exploited aquifers held in Madrid in December 2001.
