An Introduction to Thermogeology: Ground Source Heating and Cooling
- D. Banks
- 6 May 2008
Setting the baseline for this new technology, this guide looks at the skills needed and the science behind ground source heat pumps. SI units are used to cover the geological aspects.
Mine-water chemistry: the good, the bad and the ugly
Abstract Contaminative mine drainage waters have become one of the major hydrogeological and geochemical problems arising from mankind's intrusion into the geosphere. Mine drainage waters in…
Thermogeological assessment of open-loop well-doublet schemes: a review and synthesis of analytical approaches
- D. Banks
- 16 January 2009
Use of well doublets for groundwater-sourced heating or cooling typically results in a “thermal plume” of cool or warm reinjected groundwater. Such a plume may be regarded either as a potential…
The chemistry of Norwegian groundwaters: I. The distribution of radon, major and minor elements in 1604 crystalline bedrock groundwaters.
Groundwater Contamination from Rural Pit Latrines: Examples from Siberia and Kosova
New hydrogeochemical data from Kosova and southern Siberia agree with previous studies from Botswana and Moldova in suggesting that high densities of pit latrines (and other domestic pollution…
Setting action levels for drinking water: are we protecting our health or our economy (or our backs!)?

Sensitivity to long-term climate change of subpermafrost groundwater systems in Svalbard
The Chalk as a karstic aquifer: evidence from a tracer test at Stanford Dingley, Berkshire, UK

Abstract Karstic features such as swallow holes and dolines are the rule rather than the exception in the Chalk outcrop of southern England, particularly in the region of the Chalk/Tertiary boundary.…
Towards a policy for sustainable use of groundwater by non-governmental organisations in Afghanistan
Abstract.A 'first pass' groundwater management policy has been developed for use by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Afghanistan, designed to prevent derogation of existing traditional water…
