By Laurence Chery, Ghislain de Marsily

Via 2050, the call for for water to maintain global agriculture increases by seventy-five consistent with cent in order to feed an expected 9 billion population. elevated quantities of water should be required for irrigation and for business and household use. usual ecosystems may be threatened through the growth of agricultural land and via a discount in water availability, whereas weather swap will exacerbate the location. administration of obtainable assets, rather groundwater, becomes extra severe and aquifers might want to be controlled for the advantage of all. those chosen papers have been first offered on the overseas organization of Hydrogeologists, Dijon 2006, and are divided into six topics: huge aquifers, source review; huge aquifers, water salinity and evolution; karstic and carbonate aquifer platforms; geothermal aquifer structures; aquifer illness reviews and aquifer tracking platforms and administration. the quantity additionally encompasses a brief biography of Henry Darcy and illustrates his contribution to technology. 5 invited contributions describe glossy equipment for estimating the hydraulic conductivity of aquifers.

Example text

With that motivation in mind, Darcy set out to unravel the universal porous media flow law – a flow law that he had suspected based on his earlier work in pipes. It is interesting to provide some details on Darcy’s column experiments, although full details are now readily accessible in Bobeck (2004). Brown (2002a) also provides a comprehensive analysis of the experimentation. Two sets of column experiments were performed in total. Set 1 (23 experiments) were conducted with the assistance of engineer Mr Charles Ritter (October 29/30, November 6, 1855) and Chief Engineer Mr Baumgarten repeated those experiments but the repeat tests are not reported.

The English translation contains the 28-plate atlas of engineering drawings that was originally published as a separate volume. 2 PART ONE Part One is a description of the historical water situation of Dijon. Chapter 1 is an account of the Darcy’s research on old fountains in the city. His friend the city archivist helped him determine which springs Dijon had used as water sources during the previous four centuries. In Chapter 2, Darcy examines the Suzon, an intermittent stream that flowed through Dijon.
