Climate Change and Groundwater: Planning and Adaptations for a Changing and Uncertain Future

Climate Change and Groundwater: Planning and Adaptations for a Changing and Uncertain Future : WSP Methods in Water Resources Evaluation Series No. 6 by Robert Maliva
English | EPUB | 2021 | 357 Pages | ISBN : 3030668126 | 65 MB

This book attempts to bridge the gap between the climate change research and decision-making communities by exploring the impacts of climate change on groundwater from a more applied perspective. Global climate change will impact groundwater demands, quality, and available supplies, and rising sea level may cause water tables to rise, inundating low-lying coastal areas. Groundwater will increasingly be needed to perform a stabilization role in mitigating fluctuations in the supply of surface waters, serving as a buffer against droughts.
