NOTE: TITLE CHANGE
The technical publications of the National Ground Water Association, Ground Water and Ground Water Monitoring & Remediation, will undergo slight title changes in 2013 as they adopt the one-word treatment of “groundwater.” Beginning with the first issues of 2013, the publication titles will read as Groundwater and Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation. The change comes after confirming that the process will not affect those doing research, online tracking, or the status of the journals in the scientific community. Learn more.

Consider Participating in a Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation Special Focus Issue on monitoring and remediation of agricultural nonpoint sources impacting groundwater quality
Guest Editor: David L. Rudolph, Ph.D., PEng and NGWREF 2013 Darcy Lecturer
Agricultural land use represents the largest nonpoint source threat to groundwater quality on a global scale. As a result of decades of fertilizer application and surface spreading of animal manure, chronic increases in nitrate concentrations have been documented within the shallow and deep groundwater environments and with increasing frequency in both private and public supply wells. The occurrence of pathogenic microbes in groundwater supply wells has also been associated with agricultural practices at the land surface. Beneficial management practices (BMPs) designed to reduce the risk of groundwater quality impacts across the agricultural landscape are being adopted worldwide, yet little data are available to assess the performance of these BMPs. A Special Focus Issue of Groundwater Monitoring & Remediation will focus on recent research efforts that involve the implementation of agricultural BMPs and unique approaches to performance assessment or novel nonpoint source remediation methods related to nutrient or pathogen contamination within the agricultural environment. If you want to submit a cutting-edge technical article or informative case study to be considered for this special issue, please send a brief synopsis of your proposed manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31, 2013.The potential publish date of the special issue is the Winter 2014 publication (Issue 34:1). All manuscript submissions will be subject to the normal GWMR peer-review process.
