Reducing groundwater vulnerability in Carbonate Island countries in the Pacific
In the Pacifi c Ocean alone, there are about 1,000 populated, tropical and sub-tropical small islands. In many of these small island countries, because of the high permeability of their soils and regoliths, surface water is scarce or absent and groundwater is the main source of freshwater. The small land areas of these islands, typically of order 1 to 10 km2, coupled with rising per capita water consumption mean that the amount of freshwater available to island communities is often limited,...[Show more]
