Groundwater is essential to life and to maintaining Earth's water cycle. In the face of growing threats to this invaluable resource, recent advances in research and analysis - notably in numerical simulation and data processing with computers - are bringing rapid changes in dynamic methodology for groundwater management and modeling. This book contains the latest updates from the field of groundwater science and engineering, organized around five major topics: Optimization of groundwater resources in basins, Groundwater pollution and remediation technologies, Underground development and groundwater technologies, Interaction between surface and subsurface water, and Reliability of numerical methods and scaling in geohydraulics. This collection of more than 80 papers by leading specialists provides a valuable source of information for researchers, engineers, and students in the field of groundwater resources and management.
