Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A comprehensive presentation of groundwater hydrology that integrates chemistry, physics, geology, and calculus while applying theory to real-world geology. Provides quantitative methods of calculation in groundwater hydrology. Contains sections on transport processes, ground water contamination, well hydraulics, and aquifer yield -- including analog and numerical modeling. Covers mathematical derivations in appendices.
Includes index, appendices. - - Elements of fluid mechanics. - - Equation of flow for transient flow through deforming saturated media. - - Example of an analytical solution to a boundary-value problem. - - Debye-huckel equation and kielland table for ion-activity coefficients. - - Complementary error function. - - Development of finite-difference equation for steady-state flow in a homogeneous, isotropic medium. - - Tóth's analytical solution for regional groundwater flow. - - Numerical solution of the boundary-value problem representing one- dimensional infiltration above a recharging groundwater flow system. - - Development of finite-differenceequation for transient flow in a heterogeneous, anisotropic,horizontal, confined aquifer. - - Derivation of the advection- dispersion equation for solute transport in saturated porous media.
Introduction. - - Physical properties and principles. - - Chemical Properties and principles. - - Groundwater geology. - - Flow nets. - - Groundwater and the hydrologic cycle. - - Chemical evolution of natural groundwater. - - Groundwater resource evaluation. - - Groundwater contamination. - - Groundwater and geotechnical problems. - - Groundwater and geologic processes.
We perceive a trend in the study and practice of groundwater hydrology. We see a science that is emerging from its geological roots and its early hydraulic applications into a full-fledged enviromental science. We see a science that is becoming more interdisciplinary in nature and of greater importance in the affairs of man. This book is our response to these percived trends. We have tried to provide a text that is suited to the study of groundwater during this period of emergence. We have made a conscious attempt to integrate geology and hydrology, physics and chemistry, and science and engineering to a greater degree than has been done in the past.
