Fluid Flow and Solute Movement in Sandstones: the Onshore UK by R. D. Barker, J. H. Tellam, Editors

By R. D. Barker, J. H. Tellam, Editors

Sandstone aquifers are universal around the world: they comprise an important percentage of the Earth's clean water offers. despite the fact that, as a result of their textural complexity and the widespread prevalence of either matrix and fracture move, prediction of circulation and pollutant migration remains to be a substantial problem. This quantity encompasses a choice of papers summarizing present study on an instance sandstone aquifer: the united kingdom Permo-Triassic Sandstone series. those pink mattress, organic-poor sandstones are of fluvial and aeolian starting place, are frequently strongly textured, and are lower by means of discontinuities of quite a lot of permeabilities. Matrix move frequently dominates, yet fracture stream additionally happens. The papers within the quantity take care of examine on saturated and unsaturated circulate, and solute and non-aqueous-phase liquid move. They conceal investigations from laboratory to nearby scale, and contain a variety of methods, from petrophysical via geophysical and hydrochemical to modelling. The e-book is meant to be of curiosity to researchers and practitioners excited about water assets and groundwater toxins, and to hydrogeology, water engineering, and environmental technology students.Also to be had: 2 hundred Years of British Hydrogeology - ISBN 1862391556 Sustainable Groundwater improvement - ISBN 1862390975 Palaeowaters in Coastal Europe: Evolution of Groundwater because the overdue Pleistocene - ISBN 186239086X

Adapting to Drought: Farmers, Famines and Desertification in by Michael Mortimore

By Michael Mortimore

This publication embodies the result of 13 years of analysis in drought-prone rural components within the semi-arid sector of northern Nigeria. It describes the styles of adaptive behaviour saw between Hausa, Ful'be and Manga groups in line with recurrent drought within the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties. The query of desertification is explored in a space the place the seen proof of relocating sand dunes is dramatic blame are tested relating to the sector proof. A critique is available of deterministic theories and authoritarian strategies. Professor Mortimore demonstrates a parallel among the observable resilience of semi-arid ecosystems and the adaptive thoughts of the human groups that inhabit them and indicates coverage instructions for strengthening that resilience.
