Offshore fresh groundwater reserves as a global phenomenon

  title={Offshore fresh groundwater reserves as a global phenomenon},
  author={V. E. A. Post and Jacobus Groen and H. J. van der Kooi and Mark Person and Shemin Ge and Wade M. Edmunds},
The flow of terrestrial groundwater to the sea is an important natural component of the hydrological cycle. This process, however, does not explain the large volumes of low-salinity groundwater that are found below continental shelves. There is mounting evidence for the global occurrence of offshore fresh and brackish groundwater reserves. The potential use of these non-renewable reserves as a freshwater resource provides a clear incentive for future research. But the scope for continental… CONTINUE READING
