land use represents the largest nonpoint source threat to groundwater quality
on a global scale. As a result of
decades of fertilizer application and surface spreading of animal manure,
chronic increases in nitrate concentrations have been documented within the
shallow and deep groundwater environments and with increasing frequency in both
private and public supply wells. The occurrence of pathogenic microbes in
groundwater supply wells has also been associated with agricultural practices
at the land surface.
management practices (BMPs) designed to reduce the risk of groundwater quality
impacts across the agricultural landscape are being adopted worldwide, yet
little data are available to assess the performance of these BMPs.
Special Focus Issue of Groundwater
Monitoring & Remediation® will focus on recent research efforts that
involve the implementation of agricultural BMPs and unique approaches to
performance assessment or novel nonpoint source remediation methods related to
nutrient or pathogen contamination within the agricultural environment.
you want to submit a cutting-edge technical article or informative case study to
be considered for this special issue, please send a brief synopsis of your proposed
manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31, 2013. The potential publish
date of the special issue is the Winter 2014 publication (Issue 34:1). All
manuscript submissions will be subject to the normal GWMR peer-review process.
