    Climate Change’s Groundwater Time Bomb

    Climate Change May Be Creating a Groundwater 'Time Bomb,' Scientists Say

    Pam Wright, January 23, 2019 (The Weather Channel)

    “Climate change may be creating a groundwater ‘time bomb’ as the world's underground water systems catch up to the impacts of global warming…[More than half of the world’s groundwater systems — the largest source of usable freshwater in the world — could take more than 100 years to completely respond to current environmental changes from global warming…Groundwater is replenished primarily by rainfall through a process known as recharge. Concurrently, water exits or discharges from groundwater sources into lakes, streams and oceans to maintain an overall balance…When there is a change in recharge due to a lack of rainfall, for example, levels of groundwater drop until balance is restored…

    The problem facing scientists, government officials and water management planners is knowing exactly when recharge changes occurring now as a result of global warming will be reflected in discharge from groundwater sources into lakes, streams and oceans…[Research found] that locations that are wetter and more humid like the Amazon and Florida Everglades may begin to experience recharge/discharge problems in the shorter term. It would take much longer in arid locations like the Sahara desert…With more than 2 billion people relying on groundwater as a source of drinking and irrigation water, a delay in reaction to the systems could become very problematic, especially in locations where people rely almost entirely on groundwater for personal, industrial and agricultural needs…” click here for more
