Groundwater Prospecting: Tools, Techniques and Training

In this book Groundwater Prospecting: Tools, Techniques, and training methods are explained in detail. The author is a Geologist, Geographer, Environment, Climate Change and Development professional. Many countries are facing severe water constraints today. Every country should be able to harness and manage its water resources more efficiently to support intensive agriculture, to fulfill drinking water and sanitation needs of both rural and urban populations, and also to satisfy the requirements of the industry. During the last few decades, the creation of surface reservoirs and the associated irrigation canal networks had formed the backbone of our water management strategy. Where the canal network could not reach, groundwater has been heavily exploited for irrigation. A piquant situation has, therefore, arisen; the areas are facing declining groundwater levels. The need, therefore, is to increase our ability to conjunctively manage groundwater in a region. The groundwater prospecting plays a major role in sustainable harvesting and use.
