This includes a focus on land clearance, conservation issues, pollution, decay and erosion, urban climate, and anthropogenic climate change.

The book is an invaluable source of information for hydrogeologists, geologists, urban planners, water supply engineers, and environmental agencies. Keywords geology hydrogeology sustainable development urban planning urban resources water supply. Creative work, in geology and anywhere else, is interaction and synthesis: half-baked ideas from a bar room, rocks in the field, chains of thought from lonely walks, numbers squeezed from rocks in a laboratory, numbers from a calculator riveted to a desk, fancy equipment usually malfunctioning on expensive ships, cheap equipment in the human.
