Water resources are of enormous societal and ecological importance. In coastal areas, they are under ever greater pressure due to population growth, more affluent lifestyles, food production and the growing tourism industry. Changes to the coastal landscape, through urbanisation and land reclamation, and by natural processes such as climate change and sea level rise, modify the interaction between seawater and groundwater and put water resources at risk. This comprehensive volume covers both theory and practice of coastal hydrogeology. It discusses hydrochemistry; submarine groundwater discharge; groundwater management; palaeo-hydrology; land reclamation; climate change and sea level rise; and mathematical models of variable-density flow. With its up-to-date coverage and numerous case studies that illustrate practical implications, it is perfect for students, practitioners, managers and researchers who wish to develop an in-depth understanding of topics relevant to sustainably managing coastal groundwater resources.

In The Press

“This book presents a systematic and comprehensive approach to understanding coastal groundwater and gives readers a balanced examination of almost all important facets of coastal hydrogeology, ranging from palaeo groundwater issues in the recent geological past to future behaviour of coastal aquifers in response to climate change and sea level rise. Numerous international case studies from coastal aquifers cultivate reader understanding of the occurrence, movement and hydrochemistry of coastal groundwater in a variety of geologic settings. I am delighted to have this excellent book on my shelf and believe it will become a classic. I have no hesitation in recommending it as a 'must use' book to all those who work in any aspect of groundwater in the coastal environment.' John Cherry, University of Guelph
