Groundwater Hydrology Book Excerpt:

Increasing demand for water, higher standards of living, depletion of resources of acceptable quality, and excessive water pollution due to urban, agricultural, and industrial expansions have caused intense environmental, social, economic, and political predicaments. More frequent and severe floods and droughts have changed the ability and resiliency of water infrastructure systems to operate and provide services to the public. These concerns and issues have also changed the way we plan and manage our surface and groundwater resources. Groundwater Hydrology: Engineering, Planning, and Management presents a compilation of the state-of-the-art subjects and techniques in the education and practice of groundwater and describes them in a systematic and integrated fashion useful for undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners. The book develops a system view of groundwater fundamentals and model-making techniques through the application of science, engineering, planning, and management principles. It discusses the classical issues in groundwater hydrology and hydraulics followed by coverage of water quality issues. The authors delineate the process of analyzing data, identification, and parameter estimation; tools and model-building techniques and the conjunctive use of surface and groundwater techniques; aquifer restoration, remediation, and monitoring techniques; and analysis of risk. They touch on groundwater risk and disaster management and then explore the impact of climate change on groundwater and discuss the tools needed for analyzing future data realization and downscaling large-scale low-resolution data to local watershed and aquifer scales for impact studies. The combined coverage of engineering and planning tools and techniques as well as specific challenges for restoration and remediation of polluted aquifers sets this book apart. It also introduces basic tools and techniques for making decisions about and planning for future groundwater development activities, taking into account regional sustainability issues. An examination of the interface between groundwater challenges, the book demonstrates how to apply systems analysis techniques to groundwater engineering, planning, and management.

GROUNDWATER HYDROLOGY Book Excerpt:

This book presents a comprehensive discussion of basics of groundwater hydrology, its hydrologic and engineering aspects, and the mechanics involved in the study of flow of groundwater. The matter is presented in a logical sequence, placing emphasis on the application of theory and on the practical aspects of groundwater hydrology. The book introduces the geological formations of aquifers, discusses soil physics, describes the solutions of differential equations for confined and unconfined aquifers, elucidates groundwater flow equations and explains the phenomenon of interference of wells. The book also deals with tube wells and open wells, their design criteria, construction and work, revitalization and spacing, as well as their potential for irrigation. The issues of groundwater prospecting, analog models to study the response of aquifers to simulated field conditions, the current issues of concern pertaining to quality parameters of groundwater, and applications of remote sensing for survey and geological explorations for groundwater, are all addressed in the latter part of the book. The book is intended for the senior undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students (who specialize in Water Resources Engineering) of civil engineering. Besides it will be useful to the students pursuing courses in agricultural engineering. KEY FEATURES : Includes numerous objective-type questions (with answers) at the end of each chapter Contains worked-out numerical problems Provides chapter-end questions and unsolved numerical problems with answers for practice by students

Applied Groundwater Hydrology Book Excerpt:

Hydrogeology is a crucial and increasingly topical subject. Groundwater is one of the world's most vital resources, providing a large proportion of the water supplies in many countries. Although naturally of very high quality, groundwater is being insidiously polluted by the careless andignorant actions of man. This book reflects the concern of specialists about the deterioration of groundwater quality as a result of waste disposal, acid rain, drainage, and agricultural practices. It discusses the feasibility of harnessing geothermal energy and the repercussions of deep disposal of nuclear waste. Recentresearch and practical methodologies used in hydrogeology are described, and consideration is given to recent management changes in the water industry and the integration of groundwater development with other water sources. This book will be of interest to all who are concerned with the developmentof groundwater resources and with maintaining their quality.

Introduction to Hydrogeology Book Excerpt:

Providing an introduction to the crucially important topic of groundwater, this text covers all major fields of hydrogeology and includes outlines of the occurrence of groundwater in various rock types, the movement and storage of groundwater, the formulation of groundwater balances, the development of groundwater chemistry, as well as the practical application of hydrogeology for groundwater development. Following a unique systems approach to describe and connect its various elements, the text also explores a large selection of examples of groundwater cases from various parts of the world. In addition, theoretical sections and examples are illustrated with a number of drawings, photos and computer printouts. Suitable for education in hydrogeology at postgraduate and graduate level, the text is also a useful reference tool for professionals and decision-makers involved in water or water-related activities. In the revised paperback edition of Introduction to Hydrogeology (February 2006), suggestions of reviewers, students and collaegues have been taken into account. This means that more attention is paid to the processes in the unsaturated zone, especially those relating to groundwater recharge. Also, in the revised edition, the investigation methods are highlighted in the sections where the related theory is dealt with, and they are not presented in the last chapter on groundwater management. Chapter titles are re-named and some definitions are adjusted. The References and Bibliography section is also extended, some figures are improved, and the unevitable ‘typing errors’ are corrected as well.

Fundamentals of Hydrology Book Excerpt:

In order to manage the world's increasingly scarce water resources we must have a sound understanding of how water moves around the planet and what influences water quality. Fundamentals of Hydrology provides an engaging and comprehensive introduction to this subject and provides real-life examples of water resource management in a changing world. The second edition of this popular book brings the text up-to-date with additional case studies and diagrams and a greater synthesis of water quality with physical hydrology. The chapters on runoff and evaporation have been updated and the final chapter on hydrology in a changing world has more material on water resource management strategies. Additionally the chapter on streamflow analysis now includes a more in-depth section on modelling runoff. The book begins with a comprehensive coverage of precipitation, evaporation, water stored in the ground and as snow and ice, and runoff. These physical hydrological processes show with respect to the fundamental knowledge about the process, its measurement and estimation and how it ties in with water quality. Following this is a section on analyzing streamflow data, including using computer models and combining hydrology and ecology for in-stream flow assessment. A chapter on water quality shows how to measure and estimate it in a variable environment and finishes with a section on pollution treatment. The final chapter brings the text together to discuss water resource management andreal-life issues that are faced by hydrologists in a constantly changing world. Fundamentals of Hydrology is a lively and accessible introduction to the study of hydrology at university level. This new edition continues to provide an understanding of hydrological processes, knowledge of the techniques used to assess water resources and an up-to-date overview of water resource management in a changing world. Throughout the text, wide-ranging examples and case studies are used to clearly explain ideas and methods. Short chapter summaries, essay questions, guides to further reading and a glossary are also included.
