Increased concern has recently emerged pertaining to the occurrence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in aquatic environment during the current coronavirus disease 2019 (
Global Groundwater, 2021, Pages 145-162
This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by explaining the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE Follow On (GRACE-FO) missions that have greatly benefitted the modeling and monitoring of groundwater storage changes and drought at the global scale. In this chapter, we first review environmental controls on the temporal variability of groundwater using in situ data. We then describe an approach that infuses GRACE and GRACE-FO observations into a land surface model for assessing groundwater storage changes and drought globally.
Global Groundwater - Chapter 25 - Sustainability of groundwater used in agricultural production and trade
Global Groundwater, 2021, Pages 347-357
This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by examining the emergence of water sustainability aspects in recent virtual water trade (VWT) literature, highlights the recent advances and remaining issues in evaluating the water sustainability of agriculture globally, and makes recommendations for future scientific research and societal change: consider groundwater both at the local scale and at the global scale; improve our understanding of groundwater storage and dynamics with new models and data; and raise the profile of groundwater sustainability in governance frameworks to eventually end environmental damages of groundwater exploitation.

Global Groundwater. Source, Scarcity, Sustainability, Security, and Solutions - Chapter 37: The future of groundwater science and research
Global Groundwater. Source, Scarcity, Sustainability, Security, and Solutions, 2021, Pages 503-517
This chapter advances SDG 6 by presenting opportunities for groundwater and how information can be shared across disciplines- e.g. Many commercial operations (e.g., oil and gas, geothermal, mining) create a wealth of geological and hydrogeological information in their everyday exploration activities that can be used by groundwater professionals.
Global Groundwater. Source, Scarcity, Sustainability, Security, and Solutions - Chapter 42: Desalination of deep groundwater for freshwater supplies
Global Groundwater. Source, Scarcity, Sustainability, Security, and Solutions, 2021, Pages 577-583
This chapter advances SDG 6 by presenting an overview and consideration for groundwater desalination, including a framework tool.
