Overview

This is the first groundwater hydrology book composed entirely of genuine, applied problems covering a range of groundwater hydrology topics. KEY TOPICS: Includes 21 exercises that help sharpen quantitative skills, require data analysis and concept exploration, and incorporate current image and graphic technologies. Uses a unique case-study approach to common groundwater problems and current situations; applies exercises to well-documented case studies that use intriguing story lines to provide a central issue for each exercise. Features EXCEL based problems, encouraging readers to apply concepts to complete the exercises with immediate graphical and quantitative feedback. MARKET: A useful reference for groundwater engineers.
