9780074517123: Ground Water Assessment, Development and Management

A comprehensive, self-sufficient and up-to-date text providing complete information on various aspects of groundwater assessment, development and management. It gives a balanced presentation of theory and field practice using a multidisciplinary approach to aid in solving problems from a variety of data bases.

The coverage in this book includes:

  • Aquifer tests and evaluation of aquifer properties
  • Stream gauging and measurement of discharge and stage of wells Ground water exploration
  • Geomorphic and geologic control on ground water
  • Estimation of individual components of ground water recharge, discharge and ground water balance
  • Ground water development and management.

    The book contains a large number of figures, examples of complex interpretative techniques and methodologies, case histories, and problems along with answers.

    With its integrated, multidisciplinary approach, the book would serve as a valuable reference book to hydrogeologists, geologists, geophysicists, hydrologists, hydrometerologists, and irrigation, agricultural and drilling engineers, as well as those concerned with planning and decision making. Researchers and students would also find this an indispensable text.
