Groundwater/surface water ecotones: biological and hydrological interactions and management options. [Janine Gibert; Jacques Mathieu; Frédéric Fournier;] -- Ecotones are zones where ecological processes are more intense and resources more diversified. They are also zones which react quickly to human influences and changes of environmental . Get this from a library! Groundwater/surface water ecotones: biological and hydrological interactions and management options. [Janine Gibert; Jacques Mathieu; Frédéric Fournier;] -- Aquatic ecosystems have formed the focus of several UNESCO research projects because of the impact on them of human activities such as intensification of agricultural activity, erosion and. The groundwater-surface water (GW-SW) ecotone, or hyporheic zone, is an active component of stream ecosystems that influences whole-system metabolism and nutrient retention. Because hydrologic fluxes affect the supply of carbon, nutrients, and oxygen to the GW-SW ecotone, the biogeochemical structure of the ecotone (i.e., nutrient content) and the role of the ecotone in Cited by:

Groundwater-surface water ecotones at the upstream part of confluences in former river channels Article (PDF Available) in Hydrobiologia (2) August with 18 Reads. For grades , this colorful, page activity book features interactive lessons such as filling glasses with sand, gravel, and clay designed to show readers principles related to water flow. Watershed animals, hot and cold springs, and everyday ground water uses are vividly illustrated and demonstrated.   Two slow flowing former channels of the Rhône River, which are supplied by nutrient-poor groundwater and subject to backflows of nutrient-rich water from the Rhone, were studied in order to demonstrate the occurrence of an ecotone located upstream to their confluences with the main channel. In one of the channels, the long-term stability of the Cited by: Water supply system - Water supply system - Surface water and groundwater: Surface water and groundwater are both important sources for community water supply needs. Groundwater is a common source for single homes and small towns, and rivers and lakes are the usual sources for large cities. Although approximately 98 percent of liquid fresh water exists as groundwater, .

This volume summarises the results presented at an international conference dedicated to the study of groundwater/surface water ecotones, with contributors of international scientific reputation representing the multidisciplinary viewpoints of hydrologists, biologists and ecologists. Groundwater and Surface Water Pollution contains almost all the technical know-how required to clean up our water supply. It provides a survey of up-to-date technologies for remediation, as well as a step-by-step guide to pollution assessment for both ground and surface book defines groundwater, aquifers and surface water and discusses the physical properties of 5/5(1). I conclude that the thermal method has the ability to quantify groundwater-surface water interaction in its spatial and temporal dimensions. The method is .
