Présentation

Groundwater recharge, the flux of water across the water table, is arguably the most difficult component of the hydrologic cycle to measure. In arid and semiarid regions the problem is exacerbated by extremely small recharge fluxes that are highly variable in space and time.

Groundwater Recharge in a Desert Environment : The Southwestern United States speaks to these issues by presenting new interpretations and research after more than two decades of discipline-wide study.

Discussions on :
(1) developing environmental tracers to fingerprint sources and amounts of groundwater at the basin scale
(2) the critical role of vegetation in hydroecological processes
(3) new geophysical methods in quantifying channel recharge
(4) applying Geographical Information System (GIS) models to land surface processes
(5) coupling process-based vadose zone to groundwater modeling, and more

This book a significant resource for hydrologists, biogeoscientists, and geochemists concerned with water and water-related issues in arid and semiarid regions
