Many coastal regions rely on underground aquifers for a substantial portion of their freshwater supply. A practical, how-to guide, this book brings together new knowledge and new technologies useful to hydrogeologists, water resource engineers, and other professionals responsible for protecting and managing groundwater supplies. It provides useful methods and tools for modeling, monitoring, and managing coastal aquifers. International contributors present a worldwide perspective on a topic that is growing in importance and a companion CD-ROM provides computer programs, data files, sample output, color graphics, maps, tables, spreadsheets, databases, animations, and movies.
