Description

This book demonstrates the effectiveness of DRASTIC model in a geographical area for validation of vulnerable zones against the chemically analyzed water samples including optimization of parameters with consideration to anthropogenic factors resulting in development of precise maps highlighting several zones with varied gravity of contamination. Aimed primarily at researchers and graduate students in civil and hydrologic engineering, groundwater resources management, hydrogeology, contamination, this book,

Covers effectiveness of DRASTIC model for groundwater vulnerability assessment

Reviews of the strengths and limitations of assessment methods

Presents multi-criteria evaluation of hydro-geological and anthropogenic factors

Discusses integration with Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS)

Includes application of groundwater governance framework with a case study
