Groundwater in Fractured Rocks: IAH Selected Paper Series, by Jirí Krásný, John M. Sharp

By Jirí Krásný, John M. Sharp

The hydrogeologic atmosphere of fractured rocks represents important usual structures, examples of which take place on each continent. This e-book discusses key matters, methodologies and strategies within the hydrogeology of fractured rocks, summarizing fresh growth and looking ahead to the result of destiny investigations. Forty-four revised and up-to-date papers have been chosen from prolonged abstracts provided on the International convention on Groundwater in Fractured Rocks, held in Prague in 2003 and those offer a precious benchmark reference for reviews in fractured rock hydrogeology around the world. issues comprise sustainable groundwater improvement, groundwater safety and administration, new and more advantageous techniques to the investigating hydrogeology of fractured structures, knowing of hydrogeologic homes either on neighborhood and local scales, and either quantitative and qualitative elements of groundwater movement and solute/contaminant shipping.

Introduction to Earth and Planetary System Science: New View of Earth, Planets and Humans

This booklet offers simple details on fabric technology (geochemistry, geophysics, geology, mineralogy, and so on. ), interplay among subsystem consisting earth method (atmosphere, hydrosphere, litho (geo) sphere, biosphere, people) and in earth-planet procedure and evolution of earth-planetary process. The nature-humans interactions are defined and new view on the earth, planets and people (integration of anthropocentrism and naturecentrism) are offered.

This booklet specializes in demanding situations in city groundwater, greatly considered as a major worldwide factor. issues lined are wide and variety from the city water stability and emerging groundwater degrees to groundwater infection and the function of aquifer modelin.

Role of Rainfall and Catchment Characteristics on Urban Stormwater Quality

The foremost highlights of the booklet comprise an leading edge rainfall class method in line with stormwater caliber to aid the making plans and layout of stormwater remedy structures. also, this e-book offers a realistic method of powerful stormwater remedy layout and improvement of a strategy for rainfall choice to optimize stormwater remedy in accordance with either its caliber and volume.

From Biomolecules to Chemofossils

This moment quantity within the sequence 'Fundamentals in natural Geochemistry' focusses on molecular chemical points introducing the structural variety of common items, their destiny within the sedimentary structures and the implications of the corresponding changes for geoscientific questions. natural Geochemistry is a latest clinical topic characterised through a excessive transdisciplinarity and found on the fringe of chemistry, environmental sciences, geology and biology.
