Chapter 3 - Contaminated groundwater sampling and quality control of water analyses,
Editor(s): Benedetto De Vivo, Harvey E. Belkin, Annamaria Lima,
Environmental Geochemistry (Third Edition), Elsevier, 2024, Pages 35-62, ISBN 9780443138010

This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation by reviewing the tools available for the collection of groundwater samples, methods of on-site water-quality analysis, and the appropriate preservation and handling of samples. This work contributes to the anaylis of groundwater in efforts to monitor and improve water for populations.
This chapter aligns with SDGs 3 and 6 by examining the relative capacity and capability of developing nations to adapt to hydrological variability arising from climate change and to study the challenges faced by developing economies to mitigate the impact of climate change on water resources.
This chapter aligns with SDGs 3 and 6 by examining how changes in precipitation, land use, EWEs, and necessary pollution control will force changes in how we farm.

Srivastava, Ahmed Kayad, Francisco Muñoz-Arriola, Prem Chandra Pandey; Remote Sensing of Soil and Land Surface Processes: Monitoring, Mapping, and Modeling, Elsevier, 2023, ISBN 9780323910682, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-443-15341-9.00005-8

This chapter aligns with SDG 6 by showing applications of mapping various data sources such as rainfall, temperature, soil moisture, and vegetation cover, based on several drought indices. The utilization of these maps can aid in the identification of drought-affected regions and, subsequently, prioritize the allocation of water resources accordingly.

Chapter 7 - Leaks,
Editor(s): Daniel A. Vallero, Trevor M. Letcher,
Unraveling Environmental Disasters (Second Edition),
Pages 171-205

This chapter aligns with SDGs 3 and 6 by distinguishing hydrogeological plumes from atmospheric plumes in this chapter by referring to them as leaks, considering environmental or potential disasters from the perspective of groundwater contamination.

Manzoor Qadir, Christopher A. Scott, Trade-offs of wastewater irrigation, Editor(s): Michael J. Goss, Margaret Oliver, Encyclopedia of Soils in the Environment (Second Edition), Academic Press, 2023, Pages 277-287, ISBN 9780323951333, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-822974-3.00018-5.

This chapter aligns with Goal 11 and 6 by analysing the use of wastewater for irrigation, balancing positive outcomes and trade-offs. There is a large variation between developed and developing countries as well as among countries within different economic groups regarding safe management of wastewater.
