The first book devoted entirely to the problem of nitrate risk and behaviour in groundwater, this volume includes twenty-seven papers selected from those presented during the Euromeeting of the International Association of Hydrogeologists "Nitrate in Groundwater in Europe" held in Wisla, Poland in 2002. The problems presented and discussed in Wisla covered all aspects of nitrate pollution of groundwaters globally, while the articles describing the case studies focus on groundwater in Europe. The remaining chapters examine the main chemical and physical processes which affect nitrate in groundwater, as well as describing nitrate distribution in various aquifers, seen as an essential problem areas of groundwater protection.
