Special Issue "Managed Aquifer Recharge for Water Resilience"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2019.
MAR is part of the palette of solutions to water shortage, water security, water quality decline, falling water tables, and endangered groundwater dependent ecosystems. It is often the most economic, most benign, most resilient, and most socially acceptable solution, but has not been considered out of lack of awareness, inadequate knowledge of aquifers, immature perception of risk, and incomplete policies for integrated water management, including linking MAR with demand management. MAR can achieve much towards solving the myriad of local water problems that have collectively been termed “the global water crisis” if it is included among the options evaluated locally. This Special Issue strives to make transparent the effectiveness, benefits, constraints, limitations, and applicability of MAR, together with its supporting scientific advances, to a wide variety of situations that have global relevance. This special issue was initiated by the IAH Commission on Managing Aquifer Recharge to capture and extend from selected papers at the 10th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge (ISMAR10) held in Madrid, Spain 20-24 May 2019. It also gives an opportunity for including additional highly relevant and timely papers submitted to J Water.
