Detailing and developing important principles and methods in groundwater hydraulics and pollutant transport, this state-of-the-art study zeroes in on the essentials and provides students with only the most practical and applicable materials.
Written by an internationally recognized expert on the transport of contaminants in groundwater, the coverage is thorough and rigorous enough to meet the needs of more advanced engineering and natural science students, integrates a generous amount of worked out examples and problems for solution, and provides the latest tools for computation.

  • Comprehensive, rigorous and highly accessible coverage-Offers well-structured and insightful discussions on groundwater flow, well hydraulics, field methods for parameter estimation, hydrologic relationships between surface water and groundwater hydrology, mass transport of contaminants by advection, diffusion and dispersion, and special problems posed by nonaqueous phase liquids (oils).
  • Enlightens and educates students on a wide range of practical interest areas involving today's engineers and scientists.
  • A sound foundation of introductory material to build upon-i.e., introduces Darcy's law in a discussion based on fluid mechanics, then carefully connects all developments to basic principles (Ch. 2), relates multiphase partitioning relationships to simple phase relati
