Vegetation plays an important role in partitioning solar energy and water into the geosphere and the atmosphere. When changes occur in areas related to agriculture, urbanization and mining, the resulting changes in land cover and land use often lead to disturbances in both the atmosphere and the subsurface environment. This edited volume addresses the relationship between changes in land use and the delicate balance between water, solute, and heat cycles in basins. It examines evapotranspiration, the rate of groundwater recharge, discharge rates into rivers or oceans, and the moisture content of soils. The combined effects of these factors will have a significant impact on issues affecting the global environment. Subsurface Hydrological Responses to Land Cover and Land Use Changes will be of value to experts in academia, consulting firms, and planning agencies who are interested in subsurface hydrological problems. It may be appropriate for use in courses such as environmental hydrology, subsurface hydrology, water management and land use management.
