  • Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

    By Prabhat Chandra Chandra

    In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often…

  • Fate and Transport of Nutrients in Groundwater and Surface Water in an Urban Slum Catchment, Kampala, Uganda

    By Philip Mayanja Nyenje

    Urban informal settlements or slums are growing rapidly in cities in sub-Saharan Africa. Most often, a sewer system is not present and the commonly-used low-cost onsite wastewater handling practices, typically pit latrines, are frequently unplanned, uncontrolled and inefficient. Consequently, most…

  • Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

    Edited by John M. Sharp

    Fractured rocks extend over much of the world, cropping out in shields, massifs, and the cores of major mountain ranges. They also form the basement below younger sedimentary rocks; at depth; they represent a continuous environment of extended and deep regional groundwater flow. Understanding of…

  • Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents

    By Valentine Uwamariya

    In general, groundwater is a preferred source of drinking water because of its convenient availability and its constant and good quality. However this source is vulnerable to contamination by several substances. Acceptable quality limits relative to micropollutant contents in drinking water are…

  • Advances in River Sediment Research

    Edited by Shoji Fukuoka, Hajime Nakagawa, Tetsuya Sumi, Hao Zhang

    Sediments, which constitute the surface of the Earth, start their journey to rivers with the energy obtained from rainfalls, fl oods and other natural processes. Due to transport of sediments, rivers develop with various appearances and functions, and play a crucial role in the activities of human…
