Item description for Nitrates in Groundwater: IAH Selected Papers on Hydrogeology 5 (Iah - Selected Papers on Hydrogeology) by Lidia Razowska...
This book provides an overview of a wide spectrum of current studies of nitrates in groundwater. Although a number of papers dealing with nitrate pollution of groundwater have appeared in different conference proceedings for the last 30 years, this is the first book devoted entirely to the problem of nitrate risk and behavior in groundwater. This volume includes 27 papers selected from those presented during the Euromeeting of the International Association of Hydrogeologists "Nitrate in groundwater in Europe". The meeting, organised by the Polish Geological Institute was held in Wisla in Poland in 2002. The problems presented and discussed in Wisla covered all the aspects of nitrate pollution of groundwaters. Therefore the scope of this book extends beyond the European continent. Only the section with articles describing the case studies is limited to groundwater in Europe. The remaining chapters treat the main chemical and physical processes, which affect nitrate in groundwater as well as describe nitrate distribution in various aquifers. These are the essential problem areas of groundwater protection. The papers have been grouped in five chapters: Origin of nitrates in groundwater, Experimental investigations of nitrates in groundwater, Modelling of nitrate transport and chemistry, Nitrate pollution of groundwater - national and regional studies, Monitoring and protection of groundwater from nitrate pollution.
