The Rise and Fall of Urban Groundwater

Video describes a study in South Dunedin, New Zealand, where rising sea level results in a corresponding groundwater level rise away from the coast, which can result in flooding (groundwater inundation) and other negative effects.
Dur 7 min

Addressing Global Groundwater Challenges – Ten Reasons it’s messy. Ten challenges

Prof. David Kraemer reviews global challenges for groundwater around the world, including inadequate sanitation, pollution, and ten specific challenges, including in the context of socio-hydrogeology.
Dur 22 min

California’s Drought: Groundwater at Risk

This video includes interviews with farmers and drillers, who describe first hand how groundwater has become an unsustainable resource and how there is an agricultural crises. Without surface water available for agriculture and aquifer recharge, and given the continued reliance on groundwater pumping, the aquifers are being depleted and desertification is occurring.

Ten Reasons Why Our Relationship with Groundwater is a Total Mess

Presentation by John Cherry, Professor Emeritus and Chair of The Groundwater Project. The presentation was given at the 47th IAH Congress, virtual conference in 2021. He proposes there are three parts to the groundwater problem: depletion, salinization, and water quality, and 10 reasons for the global groundwater crisis: 1) Slow groundwater response times; 2) groundwater is “invisible”; 3) groundwater is difficult to monitor; 4) groundwater contamination is cumulative; 5) waste release/disposal issues; 6) fragmented regulations; 7) externalized costs; 8) globalization; 9) unknown/unlinked health impacts; and 10) ignorance.
