Groundwater Environment in Asian Cities: Case Studies, Concepts, and Methods is an ideal resource given the fact that the United Nations estimates that by the year 2030 46% of the world's total population will reside in South East Asia, China, and India. With many of these countries plagued by excessive groundwater extraction, pollution, and poor infrastructure, all factors that contribute to the degradation of the region's fresh water sources, the book employs regional case studies to illustrate each city's unique environment, problems encountered, and different groundwater technologies and methods deployed. In this reference, each case study includes maps of the country's watershed and groundwater basin, water demand, the role of groundwater in total water demand, and aquifer types and their distribution. Presents a framework for evaluating groundwater environment and sustainability in urban environments Provides a reference point for mitigating groundwater problems related to quantity, quality, abstraction, use, management, and control Includes case studies and local examples from a broad geographical range of urban environments from virtually every region in Asia, including Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Tokyo, and Jakarta

Groundwater contributes to the sustainable development of many Asian cities by providing water for domestic, industrial and agricultural uses and regulating ecosystem flows. However, groundwater has not always been properly managed, which often has resulted in depletion and degradation of the resource. Groundwater Environment in Asian Cities presents the up-to-date scientific knowledge on groundwater environment in fourteen Asian cities using Driver-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) framework. In detail the book presents the facts and figures of groundwater dependency, problems related to groundwater over

In 2007, the world's urban population surpassed the number of people living in rural areas and is still growing. The number of city dwellers who do not have access to piped water and rely on groundwater is also increasing. In many Asian cities, groundwater is not only the source of domestic water but also an important resource for industrial development, making better management of groundwater resources essential for sustainable development. Because groundwater is easier to access and costs less than water

Excessive groundwater pumping, groundwater contamination, and subsurface thermal anomalies have occurred frequently in Asian coastal cities, greatly disturbing the urban aquifer and the subsurface environment. In this volume, the relationship between the stage of a city’s development and subsurface environment issues have been explored. Intensive field surveys were done in Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Jakarta, and Manila. New, advanced methods, including satellite, tracer techniques, and the social economy model, were developed to evaluate subsurface conditions. Groundwater storage and

This book presents water insecurity issues in urban areas while developing a water security index and explores the innovative approaches to water development and management with examples from Asian cities. The urban water crisis is a global phenomenon, but it is more obvious in the megacities of the developing world. Urban drought, although not a familiar term, will pose a significant threat to humankind in the near future, especially in the context of increasing population in cities. Many cities are

The Southeast Asian environment has been degraded by the release of industrial and domestic wastes, agricultural and aquacultural chemicals, and pollutants from automobiles. It suffers from water-related disasters, Tsunami, floods, typhoons, etc. In order to deal with these issues an integrated approach from the inhibitants, governments and researchers is essential. The environmental threats arising from the increasing population, overuse of natural resources, industrialization, urbanization, and natural disasters present ever increasing challenges to pursuing sustainable development of the region.
