Developing Sustainable Groundwater Management Strategies

Presented by

Sandra Merten

About this talk

Preparing for the world’s future water resource needs is growing increasingly complex. According to the 2020 United Nations World Water Development Report, the use of water has grown 6x in the past 100 years with continual growth expected. Increased demand, plus the effects of global climate change, will stretch water resources to its max. Aquifers can store water, but the unintended consequences of consumption present a threat to groundwater resources. Overexploitation of groundwater resources is leading to groundwater quality deterioration and depletion, ecosystem degradation, land subsidence and seawater intrusion. Therefore, it is essential to manage groundwater resources in a sustainable way. In this webinar, you will learn more about how you can leverage information and data from scientific studies on groundwater resources to get an overview of the groundwater quality in your area of interest, which can support the development of sustainable groundwater management strategies. Sandra Merten, Senior Product Manager of Geofacets, will demonstrate how to: •Find published maps, tables, plots, and associated article information quickly using Geofacets to get an overview of the published data for the area of interest •Use maps, tables and associated information from Geofacets in Excel and ArcGIS to analyze the data and gain geospatial insights
