Hydrogeology is the study of the laws governing the movement of subterranean water and its interaction with other components of the hydrological cycle, the mechanical, chemical, and thermal interaction of this water with the porous solid, and the transport of energy, mass, and particulate matter by the flow. This book shows readers how to apply hydrogeology principles to a host of problems related to water supply, contamination, and energy resources. It discusses hydraulic testing, modeling of contaminant transport, process and parameter determination, and remediation. It also addresses porosity, permeability, and flow for continental environments, marine environments, and the borders between them.
Updated coverage in areas that have progressed significantly, including multiphase flow, chemical topics, and new remedial technologies.
-- Additional chapters covering development of groundwater resources, groundwater in the Earth's crust, solute and particle transport, and principles of aqueous geochemistry.
-- New coverage of contaminant hydrogeology.
