Natural Groundwater Quality

by W. Mike Edmunds

Natural Groundwater Quality Synopsis

This text presents a series of thematic chapters together with chapters on representative groundwater systems in Europe which illustrate the main processes and evolution of water quality. * Brings together the research of a consortium of leading European scientists who have conducted detailed studies of water quality in Europe * Includes a synthesis of findings, highlighting the thematic and regional results, with recommendations regarding aquifer evaluation, indicators, monitoring, and drinking water standards * Creates a key reference work on natural water quality of aquifers, at a time when the Groundwater Directive (GD) will shortly be brought in to supplement The European Water Framework Directive (WFD) to ensure good status of groundwater

Natural Groundwater Quality Press Reviews

This is a well-produced book with many detailed, clear figures. It will serve its purpose well - of informing WFD assessments of natural background quality. (Geoscientist, 1 December 2010) This text is the result of these important studies and constitutes a key reference on natural water quality of acquifiers. (Journal of the American Water Resources Association, December 2008) The book would be a very good introduction for scientists desiring to learn more about this area of inquiry ... .The book also would be useful for someone interested in learning more about the major aquifiers of Europe. (Ground Water, November/December 2008)
