  • Gravitational Systems of Groundwater Flow: Theory, Evaluation, Utilization

    This book recognises groundwater flow as a fundamental geologic agent, and presents a wide-ranging and illustrated overview of its history, principles, scientific consequences and practical utilization. The author, one of the founding fathers of modern hydrogeology, highlights key interrelationships between seemingly disparate processes and ...

  • Groundwater Flow Understanding: From Local to Regional Scale

    Any sustainable groundwater development programme requires knowledge of the prevailing flow system extending from local to regional scale. This book of selected papers discusses integral groundwater management with scale flow issues and presents methods for defining, preventing, controlling and mitigating negative environmental impacts related to ...

  • Rare Earth Elements in Groundwater Flow Systems

    Rare Earth Elements in Groundwater Flow Systems is the first volume of its kind entirely focused on the geochemistry of the lanthanide series elements in groundwater/aquifer environments. Consisting of ten chapters, each of which is an original, peer-reviewed contribution by some of the leading researchers in the study of the low-temperature ...

  • Numerical Modeling of Isothermal Groundwater and Geothermal Systems: Mass, Solute and Heat Transport

    Examining the numerical modeling of sub-surface systems, this comprehensive work studies fluid flow in saturated groundwater-flow and geothermal systems. It compiles and synthesizes the modern features as well as reviews the related solute and heat transport. This forward-looking volume addresses barriers to progress in this area and provides new ...

  • Groundwater in Fractured Rocks

    Comprising 44 chapters by authors from 22 countries, this book focuses on the hydrogeology of fractured environments. This compendium discusses the key issues, methodologies, and techniques in the field of hydrogeology of fractured (hard) rocks, summarizing results achieved in recent years as well as stimulating ideas and considerations on future ...

  • Remediation Hydraulics

    In situ treatments involving the arrangement of contact between prospective reactants in complex porous media require a refined understanding of solute migration. However, the tools and methods used to predict and control fluid movement in the subsurface need significant improvement. Practitioners and regulators must develop novel methods to ...

  • Groundwater in Geologic Processes

    The second edition of this well received and widely adopted textbook has been extensively revised to provide a more comprehensive treatment of hydromechanics (the coupling of groundwater flow and deformation), to incorporate findings from the substantial body of research published since the first edition, and to include three new chapters on ...

  • Computational Geomechanics

    Recent years have witnessed the development of computational geomechanics as an important branch of engineering. The use of modern computational techniques makes it possible to deal with many complex engineering problems, taking into account many of the typical properties of geotechnical materials (soil and rock), such as the coupled ...

  • Efficient Numerical Methods and Information-Processing Techniques for Modeling Hydro- and Environmental Systems

    Numerical simulation models have become indispensable in hydro- and environmental sciences and engineering. This monograph presents a general introduction to numerical simulation in environment water, based on the solution of the equations for groundwater flow and transport processes, for multiphase and multicomponent flow and transport processes ...

  • River Basin Management IV

    River basin management is a complex and interdisciplinary issue. It essentially includes river and groundwater flows, quantity and quality of water resources, water and soil interaction, droughts and floods; all these, in a frame of increasing and competing human demands, deterioration of natural resources, climate change, changing public views, ...

  • Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology

    Environmental Tracers in Subsurface Hydrology synthesizes the research of specialists into a comprehensive review of the application of environmental tracers to the study of soil water and groundwater flow. The book includes chapters which cover ionic tracers, noble gases, chlorofluorocarbons, tritium, chlorine-36, oxygen-18, deuterium, and ...

  • Modeling Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport

    In many parts of the world, groundwater resources are under increasing threat from growing demands, wasteful use, and contamination. To face the challenge, good planning and management practices are needed. A key to the management of groundwater is the ability to model the movement of fluids and contaminants in the subsurface. The purpose of this ...

  • The Water of the Jordan Valley

    Natural saline water, waste water, and irrigation return flow endanger the groundwater aquifers in the Rift. In the long run this will ruin the socio-economic backbone of the settlements in the area. Sustainability of the water resources will only be achieved when the process of water replenishment and its underground flow is understood and water ...

  • Transboundary Water Resources: A Foundation for Regional Stability in Central Asia

    “Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.”H. G. WellsDespite a growing awareness of the importance of freshwater, human actions continue to degrade the freshwater ecosystems upon which we depend. Most regions of the world face serious impending problems related to the availability and efficient/equitable ...

  • Field Methods for Geologists and Hydrogeologists

    The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping ...

  • Encyclopedia of Hydrology and Water Resources

    The fresh water supplies of the Earth are finite and as the world's population continues to grow humanity's thirst for this water seems unquenchable. Intense pressure is being exerted upon freshwater resources and a lack of adequate clean water is seen as one of the most serious global problems for the 21st century. Indeed it has been said ...
