Ragged Island vor der Küste des US-Staates Maine ist ein unheimlicher Ort: Seit der englische Pirat Edward Ockham hier vor drei Jahrhunderten einen sagenhaften Schatz vergraben hat, scheitern alle Versuche, der Beute habhaft zu werden - das Gold ist in einem mit Meerwasser gefluteten Schacht jedem Zugriff entzogen, und mysteriöse Unglückfälle fordern das Leben unschuldiger Neugieriger wie professioneller Schatzsucher. Selbst die im Laufe der Zeit immer raffinierter werdenden technischen Hilfsmittel versagen regelmäßig, denn der Baumeister, der Ockhams Schatzkammer baute, war eine grausames Genie. Erst als die geheimen Aufzeichnungen des Baumeisters entdeckt werden, scheint der Schatz in greifbare Nähe zu rücken. Während Computerspezialisten beginnen, den uralten Schriftcode zu knacken, rückt die Bergungsgesellschaft Thalassa auf die Insel aus, um den Schatz zu heben. Mit dabei ist Malin Hatch, der die Insel von seinem Vater geerbt hat und dort als kleiner Junge bei einem tragischen Unfall seinen Bruder verlor. Die mit modernstem High-Tech-Gerät ausgerüstete Expedition von Ingenieuren und Historikern beginnt unter der Führung des charismatischen Kapitän Neidelmann, der Insel ihr düsteres Geheimnis zu entreißen. Schritt für Schritt kommen die Wissenschaftler und Techniker ihrem Ziel näher - doch dann beginnt Ockhams Schatzgrube zurückzuschlagen...

This book examines the process of injecting treated wastewater into wells to replenish aquifers, and thereby slow the process of land subsidence, and help to mitigate coastal flooding. It explains how up to fifty percent of sea-level rise may be due to land subsidence, and up to fifty percent of land subsidence may be due to aquifer compaction. The concepts covered discuss replenishing aquifers with clean water to reduce nutrient discharges into out-falled waterways; providing a sustainable supply of groundwater; reducing the rate of land subsidence; and protecting the groundwater from saltwater intrusion. Practical case studies from Virginia and California will be included.
