Groundwater in the Coastal Zones of Asia-Pacific
Groundwater management and conservation becomes a more and more important issue in the heavily urbanized coastal zones of the Asia-Pacific region. This volume presents a comprehensive overview of the status of coastal groundwater research in this diverse region. It includes latest methodologies and technologies to assess processes associated with coastal groundwater development. Case studies and local examples from a broad geographical range of continental shoreline and island settings give an understanding of the diversity of coastal aquifers and the groundwater recourses they harbour.Audience: By providing a clearer understanding of the hydrogeological and hydrochemical processes, this volume offers a critical tool to coastal researchers, geoscientists in related fields, water engineers, groundwater managers and decision makers as it illustrates the human and environmental impacts on coastal groundwater resources and the relationship to coastal zone management strategies and the development of sustainable management approaches.
Offers an integrated view of groundwater processes in coastal aquifers of the Asia-Pacific region Includes cutting edge coastal groundwater research from leaders in this field of sciencePresents case studies and local examples from a broad range of coastal settings in different regions of Asia-PacificSupports groundwater managers in their planning as well as offers solutions for decision makers.
