Tom Gleeson is an Associate Professor with University of Victoria, Canada. I am a hydrogeologist interested in groundwater sustainability, regional- to continental-scale groundwater systems, groundwater-surface water interactions and fluid flow around geologic structures. Tom Gleeson and colleagues estimate the true scale of the problem using a newly developed concept called the 'groundwater footprint' — defined as the area required to … Groundwater footprints and sustainability Can groundwater development be sustainable in different hydrologic and political settings?

Tom Gleeson, shown in this undated handout photo, of the University of Victoria led a study that produced the first data-driven estimate of the Earth‚Äôs total supply of groundwater. Tom Gleeson. Second, groundwater recharge in carbonate rock aquifers may quickly leave the aquifer through large conduit systems and springs ( 8 ).

First, groundwater pumping likely decreases groundwater discharge significantly, with spring flow and base flow impacting environmental flow (1, 32). Located at the University of Victoria, Tom Gleeson's Groundwater Science and Sustainability (GSAS) Research Group integrates field hydrogeology, geomatics, numerical modelling, geochemistry, structural geology and sustainable science. Water Underground is a groundwater nerd blog written by a global collective of hydrogeologic researchers for water resource professionals, academics and anyone interested in groundwater, research, teaching and supervision. "Groundwater can and should be thought of as a very useful buffer to climate extremes," he said.
