    Groundwater is a crucial natural resource for regular socio-economic function. Groundwater vulnerability to pollution can be assessed through Geographical Information System (GIS)-based qualitative methods. GIS-based tools, dedicated to the assessment of groundwater vulnerability, usually present several limitations, such as high cost, unavailable code, and a lack of functionality concerning Cited by: 1. Geophysical techniques can map the underground conditions apart from boreholes. The use of these methods for hydrogeological applications is demonstrated for mapping of porous and structural aquifers, determination of groundwater quality (mineralization), assessment of hydraulic properties, determination of aquifer vulnerability and mapping of contaminated sites. Groundwater vulnerability and risk mapping in a geologically complex area by using stable isotopes, remote sensing and GIS techniques Improving GIS Access to Clean Water in Sub-Saharan Africa Mac Book Pro 15" $

The book also contains the results of studies on factors affecting intrinsic and specific vulnerability assessment (migration of antibiotics and nitrate, groundwater-surface water interaction).

An interesting aspect of the book are examples of the different national approaches to groundwater vulnerability mapping (Poland, Ireland, Italy). Groundwater Vulnerability is a term used to represent the natural ground characteristics that determine the ease with which groundwater may be contaminated by human activities.

More scientifically, groundwater vulnerability embodies the characteristics of the intrinsic geological and hydrogeological features at a site that determine the ease of. The Environment Agency are updating their groundwater vulnerability maps to reflect improvements in data mapping and understanding of the factors.

The groundwater vulnerability maps have been created by the Environment Agency (EA) and Natural Resource Wales (NRW) using data from the BGS, the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the National Soil Resources maps provide an assessment of the vulnerability of groundwater to a pollutant discharged at ground level based on the hydrological, geological, hydrogeological and soil.

The consequences depend on the value of the uppermost target, which is normally indicated by the aquifer category, and the proximity to down-gradient targets such as a well or ecosystem.

The maps are developed by using computer mapping hard-ware and software called a geographic information systemCited by: GROUNDWATER VULNERABILITY MAPPING. Almost all groundwater resources are vulnerable to various degrees.

Vulnerability of groundwater is a relative, dimensionless property that is not directly measurable. It is assessed by using the DRASTIC technique, explained in detail in these notes. The accuracy of its assessment depends, above all, on theFile Size: KB.
