Coaster Aquifer Management monitoring modeling and case studies by Alexander H. D. Cheng and Driss Ouazar pdf
About 70% of the world’s population dwells in coastal zones. With the economic and population growth, the shortage in freshwater supply becomes increasingly acute. With surface water more and more depleted and polluted, coastal communities have turned to groundwater to make up for the shortfall. For domestic supply purposes, the percentage of groundwater use has increased to more than 40% on a worldwide basis.

Coastal aquifers are highly sensitive to anthropogenic disturbances. Inappropriate management of coastal aquifers can lead to irreversible damages, leading to their destruction as freshwater sources. Being aware of the threat, federal, state, and local water agencies have intensified saltwater intrusion monitoring and prevention projects, and increased coastal aquifer planning and management efforts. In the last two decades, a significant amount of knowledge has been accumulated and new technologies were developed. This book is an effort to assemble these advancements in order to share them with the communities, the technical profession, and the water supply industry, as well as governmental regulators and policy makers.

This book may be viewed as a sequel to the first book published on this subject: Seawater Intrusion in Coastal Aquifers—Concepts, Methods and Practices, by Bear, Cheng, Sorek, Ouazar, and Herrera (Kluwer, 1999). The first book presented the basic concepts, theories, and methodologies, which can be used as a textbook for learning this subject. The current book focuses on practical experiences.
In the year 2001, the First International Conference on Saltwater Intrusion and Coastal Aquifers— Monitoring, Modeling and Management was convened at the quiet, historical coastal town of Essaouira, in Morocco. From the participants of the conference, a group of international experts who were practitioners in federal and state water agencies, consulting companies, research laboratories, and universities was assembled to contribute to the book. This international panel was further joined by a few participants of the
second conference held in Merida, Mexico, in 2003.

The 12 chapters collected cover a broad spectrum, ranging from hydrogeology, geochemistry, geophysics, optimization, uncertainty analysis, GIS, monitoring, and computer modeling, to planning and management.
Each chapter is based on case studies that provide worldwide experiences from practices in the Gaza Strip, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Mexico, and U.S. communities in California, Florida, Massachusetts, and Alaska.
In addition to the above, this book contains another innovation. It is among the first to be co-published with a CD. Due to the large amount of data, color graphics, computer programs, documentation, and other materials associated with the field studies reported in the book, a conventionally printed book is no longer adequate. With the CD, the capacity of the book can be augmented. Not only can multimedia materials be presented in color, in animation, etc., these materials can also be easily updated in the future. We hope that through this combination of traditional and modern presentation techniques, we can bring the best of both to the reader.
