Description


Fresh water is one of the essential natural resources on Earth, and groundwater constitutes 98% of the liquid fresh water on the planet. Yet, throughout the world, groundwater resources are being depleted, allocated, squandered, contaminated -- but rarely is their fundamental value to humankind thought about or understood Groundwater for the 21st Century is an effort to increase the groundwater literacy -- from local to global scales, among laymen, students, and professionals -- of citizens of planet Earth. Groundwater for the 21st Century provides two very important perspectives on the resource -- (a) a thorough yet accessible introduction to basic groundwater science and (b) a current, concise but comprehensive overview of groundwater resources and their importance, uses, status, management, and prospects in today's world.
