A Primer for Citizens of Planet Earth
Groundwater constitutes 98 percent of the liquid fresh water on Earth! Without an adequate supply of such water, life as we know it would cease to exist. Yet in nations around the world, groundwater resources, many of them nonrenewable, continue to be depleted, contaminated, squandered, and ignored.
Groundwater for the 21st Century by John A. Conners is intended to be a useful and authoratative source of solid information for anyone interested in understanding groundwater. The book includes a thorough--yet accessible--introduction to groundwater science and a concise overview of groundwater resources, their importance, status, and management in today's world, and is the only book which covers basic groundwater science and resource issues in a manner amenable to the average person.
Groundwater for the 21st Century provides up-to-date information on many vital topics which are neglected or skimmed over in other books on groundwater. The many vital relationships between groundwater and surface conditions are examined in detail. This necessary elementary background science is necessary to provide an emphasis on developing strong qualitative understanding of groundwater and its importance in today's world, including a global perspective. Strongly emphasized is the current status of groundwater resources as billions of people are dependent upon understanding its influences on food production, energy, climate change, population growth, and other important issues.

NEW Category! TEACHER RESOURCES
STEPS. Dr. David A. Silverberg created a series of easy-to-use manuals which make the process of adapting state Standards to teachers' instructional methods quick and easy. STEPS are Standards-based manuals that have reorganized learning objectives into teacher-friendly themes and presentation. The themes are vertically alligned to display the progression of content and skill mastery through a child's entire K-12 school career. The new manuals--using the recently released national Standards--include Common Core Mathematics and Common Core Reading & Writing Across the Curriculum. State Standards, also recently released, have been used to create new manuals in Science and Social Studies for those states which have adopted the national Standards.
Release date: ongoing for various titles.
