Aquifer systems management : Darcy's legacy in a world of impending water shortage by Laurence Chery( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By 2050, the demand for water to sustain world agriculture will increase by seventy-five per cent in order to feed an estimated nine billion inhabitants. Increased amounts of water will be required for irrigation and for industrial and domestic use. Natural ecosystems will be threatened by the expansion of agricultural land and by a reduction in water availability, while climate change will exacerbate the situation. Management of available resources, particularly groundwater, will become more critical and aquifers will need to be managed for the benefit of all." "These selected papers were first presented at the International Association of Hydrogeologists, Dijon 2006, and are divided into six themes: large aquifers, resource assessment; large aquifers, water salinity and evolution; karstic and carbonate aquifer systems; geothermal aquifer systems; aquifer contamination studies and aquifer monitoring systems and management. The volume also includes a short biography of Henry Darcy and illustrates his contribution to science. Five invited contributions describe modern methods for estimating the hydraulic conductivity of aquifers."--Jacket
Henry P.G. Darcy and other pioneers in hydraulics : contributions in celebration of the 200th birthday of Henry Philibert Gaspard Darcy, June 23-26, 2003, Philadelphia, PA by Darcy Memorial Symposium on the History of Hydraulics( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proceedings of a symposium to honor Henry Philibert Caspard Darcy, held in conjunction with the 2003 World Water and Environmental Resources Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 23-26, 2003. Sponsored by the Surface Water Hydrology Committee and the History and Heritage Committee of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. This collection contains 20 peer-reviewed papers discussing the contributions of Henry P.G. Darcy (1803-1858) and other pioneers in hydraulic history. Although best-known for developing Darcy's Law and the Darcy-Weisbach Equation, Henry P.G. Darcy was also a skilled engineer, public servant, and community leader. Marking the 200th anniversary of Darcy's birth, seven papers describe Darcy's achievements and legacy and include one paper by Darcy's descendent and namesake. Additional essays assess the contributions of Henry Bazin, Günther Garbrecht, Hans Einstein, Victor Streeter, Carl Kindsvater, and Floyd Nagler. Other papers consider historical developments in pumping equipment in medieval Europe and 19th-century United States; dam failures as a result of uplift; the hydraulic engineering collection at the Smithsonian Institution; and accounts of Colorado State University, St. Anthony Falls and USDA-ARS laboratories
