Using numerical modelling for studying groundwater capacity Computer modelling for aquifer analysis
In this age of computers, numerical models are being extensively used in analysing groundwater flow problems. Over the last ten years geologists and hydrologists have developed a range of groundwater simulation programmes which model aquifer behaviour and displacement. Models have been developed for un-confined, semi-confined and confined aquifers and combinations of these, enabling planners to evaluate aquifer performance, re-charge and dis-charge. These models cannot be so easily applied to multi-aquifer systems nor to those with unsaturated flow.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
