Awareness of the existence and importance of groundwater is often not well known and, as a consequence, measures to protect and manage it sustainably are either not taken or taken too late. Groundwater Monitoring collects state-of-the-art information on groundwater quality assessment monitoring, making this an important resource for those tasked with ensuring proper quality assessment. This comprehensive text also discusses monitoring in the regulatory and international context; conceptual modeling and network design; pollutants and other pressures; quality standards and trend assessment; and case studies in the light of recent EU legislation.
