This book is an introduction to the world’s large aquifer systems published by The Groundwater Project. It focuses on thirty-seven so-called mega aquifer systems and presents a macroscopic picture of their state and relevance on the basis of attributes such as spatial dimensions, geology, groundwater reserves, groundwater renewal, mineral content, groundwater withdrawal, and storage depletion. Obviously, this information is of little use for practical purposes at the field level, given its aggregated nature and the lack of spatial detail. However, the book intends to serve other purposes and interests linked to other spatial scales.
