A University of Victoria hydrologist is one of an international group of scientists and experts who are calling for action to protect global groundwater resources—which make up 99 per cent of the Earth’s liquid freshwater.
Tom Gleeson is lead author of a Nature Correspondence statement published this week [December 9, 2019], that says we are not doing enough to protect and manage global groundwater resources from contamination, salinization, depletion and neglect. Inaction, they say, will result in long-term effects on the planet’s drinking water, food production, and ability to adapt to a rapidly changing climate.
