Physical and chemical hydrogeology
Not simply a reference volume or collection of facts and formulas, it takes a process-oriented approach, looking at the subject as a whole rather than a collection of pieces. Concentrating on the practice of hydrogeology, chapters cover state of the art applications, including a significant number of worked examples of computational procedures and problem sets. After presenting preliminary information on the hydrologic cycle and the porosity and permeability of porous material, it deals with fluid, energy and mass transport in porous media. Some of the specific topics covered include groundwater movement, elasticity of flow, hydraulic testing, heat transport in groundwater flow, chemical reactions, process and parameter identification, among many others. Also provides a student-friendly exposition of the mathematical ideas in hydrogeology. Provides both SI and equivalent ''field'' units.
