Scale Dependence of Controls on Groundwater Vulnerability in the Water–Energy–Food Nexus, California Coastal Basin Aquifer System
Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies
1 June 2017
In the Coastal California Basin (CCB) aquifer system, the conflicts in the water-energy-food nexus are apparent because of intensive agricultural practices that have contributed to chronic nitrate− loading to groundwater. Evaluates the scale-dependent relations among source, transport, and attenuation factors that control nonpoint source nitrate− contamination in recently recharged CCB groundwater.
