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 ...

  • Inverse Theory for Petroleum Reservoir Characterization and History Matching

    This book is a guide to the use of inverse theory for estimation and conditional simulation of flow and transport parameters in porous media. It describes the theory and practice of estimating properties of underground petroleum reservoirs from measurements of flow in wells, and it explains how to characterize the uncertainty in such estimates. ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Transport of Escherichia Coli in Saturated Porous Media

    When wastewater infiltrates into the soil, groundwater may be contaminated. If the distance from source of pollution to point of groundwater abstraction is small, there is a real chance of abstracting pathogenic microorganisms. This book studies the transport of Escherichia coli in aquifers under saturated conditions. The author uses the well ...

  • 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 ...

  • Subsurface Fluid Flow (Ground-Water and Vadose Zone) Modeling

    STP 1288 is the first publication of its kind featuring newly developed techniques and guidance for simulating water, air and contaminant movement in subsurface water resources. Papers are presented in an order consistent with the procedures for conducting a model application, making this volume easy to use. A comprehensive glossary of ...

  • Handbook of Groundwater Engineering

    This handbook concerns the general field of groundwater from an engineering perspective. It covers the several disciplines concerned with the design and control of flow and contaminant transport in groundwater. Each chapter is authored by a specialist in the topic treated, and special care has been taken to keep the literature up-to-date with ...

  • 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 ...

  • Applied Ground-Water Hydrology and Well Hydraulics - 3rd Ed.

    This third editionof Dr. Kasenow's highly acclaimed first edition provides review and application in regard to the mechanics of ground-water flow and aquifer analysis. Using common language and carefully constructed illustrations, this book has been written for those of us who think visually. The mathematics have been enhanced and thoroughly ...

  • 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 ...

  • Floods and Droughts

    Floods and Droughts: the New Zealand Experiencesummarizes the wealth of observation and analysis of floods and droughts in New Zealand. Chapters are contributed by 20 hydrological scientists and water resources professionals, who have worked on many different aspects of floods and droughts. Some chapters present observations of historically ...

  • Percolation Theory for Flow in Porous Media

    This monograph presents, for the first time, a unified and comprehensive introduction to some of the basic transport properties of porous media, such as electrical and hydraulic conductivity, air permeability and diffusion. The treatment is based on critical path analysis and the scaling of transport properties which are individually described as ...

  • Urban Groundwater Management and Sustainability

    Urbanization modifies underlying groundwater systems. This often leads to adverse hydrological, water quality, geotechnical, and socio-economic effects which jeopardize sustainability. Indeed, for many urban aquifers world-wide, we do not know whether there even exist socially-acceptable sustainable hydrological systems. Given that around 50% of ...

  • Water Resources and Hydrometeorology of the Arab Region

    This book mainly deals with climate and hydrology (surface and sub-surface) of the Arab Region.The book contains twelve chapters and three appendices. These chapters comprise a historical introduction, physiographic features and geological settings of the region, climate, analysis of precipitation, evaporation and evapotranspiration, river basins ...

  • 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 ...
