Publisher Description

This book focuses on scientific and technological
aspects ofgroundwater-resources assessment and surveillance. It describes
relevant risks and investigatesselected techniques for the monitoring and
mitigation of the individuated threats to groundwater quality. The authors
discuss the concepts of groundwater-resources protection andofferexamples of
both geogenic and anthropogenic degradation of groundwaterquality, such as
heavy metals from mining activities and natural water-rock interactions, as
well as risk of contamination due to geological CO2 storage
practices etc.The volume also coversnon-invasive monitoring techniques and
briefly addresses innovative sensor technologies for the online assessment of water
quality.Furthermore, the role played by geochemical techniques, the potential
of environmental isotopes and the support provided by physical modelling
arehighlighted. The chapters guide the reader through various viewpoints,
according to the diverse disciplines involved, without aiming to be exhaustive,
but instead picking representative topics for their relevance in the context of
groundwater protection and control.

This book will be of interest to advanced students,
researchers, policy-makers and stakeholders at various levels.
