A recent email I sent to a group of hydrogeologists and fellow travelers reiterated my desire to establish an online communityfor groundwater and IWRM. I am still working towards that and am searching for a suitable platform. Over 100 people have indicated they would like to be included. Click here if you want more information.
The email elicited a number of responses and a few relevant publications.
and a recent paper by himself and Mohamed Ait-Kadi of the Global Water Partnership (GWP), “Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM): How does groundwater fit in?” (fromHydrogeology Journal (2012) 20: 412-415);
I enjoyed this paper, lucid, succinct, relevant. Table 1 is especially helpful, as it provides a hydrologically consistent approach to reconciling river basin catchments with groundwater bodies for integrated water resources management (click on the table to enlarge):
An additional hydrogeological condition should be listed: that of an extensive, multi-aquifer system underlying several river basins in a humid region.
Very good article – be sure to read it.
Kevin McCray, Executive director of the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) sent this white paper on groundwater sustainability that NGWA produced in 2005:
Here are two more I discovered:
1) Another GW-MATE publication, a training manual titled, Groundwater Management in IWRM.
2) From GWP and INBO via Ari Michelsen: Handbook of IWRM in Transboundary Basins of Rivers, Lakes and Aquifers.
Enough to keep you and me busy for a while!
