Any sustainable groundwater development programme requires knowledge of the prevailing flow system, extending from local to regional scale. This book of selected papers discusses integral groundwater management with scale flow issues and presents methods of defining, preventing, controlling and mitigating negative environmental impacts related to groundwater. It highlights specific issues such as trans-boundary groundwater flow, groundwater recharge, groundwater mining, and groundwater flow in thick aquifers, and stresses the importance of the sustainable development of groundwater and its social and economic implications. The book will interest groundwater researchers and professionals, students, government administrators and educators, providing new insights into the procedures and processes that are influenced by the scale of the groundwater flow system.

Author Biography - J. Joel Carrillo Rivera
J. Joel Carrillo R. is the Professor of groundwater at the Institute of Geography, UNAM (Mexico) and obtained relevant experience in Australia. He and his students research a variety of hydrogeological issues related to the groundwater flow system analysis as applied to the definition of environmental problems from where agreeable solutions may be proposed. This systemic view of groundwater he also thoroughly been lectured in Latin America. He is the President of the IAH-Mexican Chapter. Adrian Ortega is Professor at the National University of Mexico. His research interest focuses on groundwater flow, origin, chemistry and solute and contaminant transport in high compressible closed basin aquitards, from detailed local field instrumentation sites to watershed scale.
