Utilizing observation-based research approaches to study the dynamic behavior of global water systems and the underlying variables affecting global water balance and supply, this reference specifically focuses on the study, characteristics, and management of fossil groundwaters, providing more than 280 current references, tables, and figures for comprehensive examination and further study of the global water cycle, the geohydroderm, and its major groundwater-containing geosystems.
