9780122578557: Groundwater Science

Groundwater Science is a timely, current, and comprehensive presentation of groundwater hydrology that integrates chemistry, physics, geology, and calculus.

With the input of students and other hydrology instructors, the author has developed a text reference that will be appreciated by students and professors alike. The book covers recent contamination topics such as non-aqueous-phase liquids (NAPLs), complex solute transport processes, and remediation. It contains clear explanations, two-color figures, case studies, and worked examples throughout.

This book is recommended for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in hydrology, geology, environmental science, and civil engineering departments as well as for scientists and engineers in the groundwater field.

  • Integrates up-to-date material on field methods and flow modeling methods
  • Covers recent contamination topics including non-aqueous-phase liquids (NAPLs), complex solute transport processes, and remediation
  • Presents clear explanations, two-color figures, case studies, and worked examples throughout

Book Description:

NEW TEXTBOOK!

From the Back Cover:

Groundwater Science is a well organized, clearly written resource for students and professionals seeking comprehensive treatment of hydrogeology. This volume introduces groundwater's role in the hydrologic cycle and in water supply, contamination, and construction issues. Subsequent chapters introduce physical principles: properties of subsurface materials, groundwater flow, groundwater geology, deformation, and flow modeling techniques. Later chapters address groundwater chemistry and contamination. This treatment of the subject is intentionally interdisciplinary, weaving important theories and methods from the disciplines of physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, biology, and environmental science.

Key Features
* Integrates up-to-date field methods with the principles of current flow modeling methods: analytic elements, finite differences, and finite elements
* Covers recent contamination topics including non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs), complex solute transport processes, and remediation
* Presents clear explanations, two-color figures, case studies, and worked examples throughout

About the Author:
Charles R. Fitts is a professor at the University of Southern Maine with research interests in hydrogeology, contaminant migration, and applied mathematics. Fitts earned a doctorate in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota, has consulted for various geotechnical and groundwater companies, and has authored two popular groundwater modeling software packages: TWODAN for modeling groundwater flow, and SOLUTRANS for modeling solute transport.
