Special Publication 288

There is a general consensus that for the next few decades at least, the Earth will continue its warming. This will inevitably bring about serious environmental problems. For human society, the most severe will be those related to alterations of the hydrological cycle, which is already heavily influenced by human activities. Climate change will directly affect groundwater recharge, groundwater quality and the freshwater–seawater interface. The variations of groundwater storage inevitably entail a variety of geomorphological and engineering effects. In the areas where water resources are likely to diminish, groundwater will be one of the main solutions to prevent drought. In spite of its paramount importance, the issue of ‘Climate Change and Groundwater’ has been neglected. This volume presents some of the current understanding of the topic.

A PESGB book review - Reviewed March 2015, Aberdeen, UK

This book is a compilation of 13 papers on climate change and its effects on ground water, using studies conducted over various parts of Asia, Middle East, Europe, Canada & Africa. It exhibits a balanced blending of papers ranging from qualitative analysis to high definition quantitative approach. It is also an excellent source of information and reference on various aspects of ground water variability and global warming / climate change.
