Assessment Of Groundwater Resources And Management by A.L. Ramanathan, Prosun Bhattacharya, A.K. Keshari, Jochen Bundschuh, D. Chandrasekharam And S.K. Singh
Book Summary:

The hydrogeological aspect of groundwater science is universal and applied in nature to have a sustainable water resource development with social, economic, ecological, cultural and aesthetic background. Since 99% of the world's fresh available water is groundwater; yet, the majority of financial resources are directed to surface water found in rivers and lakes. This serious imbalance requires urgent redress.

This is the basic idea that explicitly appears in almost all paper of this book. The authors have tried to focus their task on those topics that seemed to us more urgent and relevant and have paid much attention to questions related to management of aquifers, groundwater pollution, the long-term problems and the key issues in developing countries, where majority of world population live and where at present enormous groundwater abstraction occurs.

Audience of the Book :
The book provides a platform to bring together earth scientists, professionals from chemical and engineering science disciplines, public health professionals and social scientists involved with the management and development of groundwater resources.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. A compilation of 49 chapters, the book deals with all the issues related to the management of groundwater resources and its sustainable use.

2.Topics covered include reuse, drainage, toxicity/poisoning and remediation, nutrient chemistry, recharge, reserve, aquifer remediation, modeling, legislation, quality monitoring, hydrogeochemistry, and many more.

3.The text is well supported with line diagrams, pictures, and data tables.
