Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

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

* Solutions manual for all end-of-chapter problems is available to faculty who adopt the text

* Provides an accompanying Website with sample data sets for problems, a forum for faculty discourse, and links to groundwater sites and public domain software

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.

Book News Annotation:

Written for students and professionals in hydrogeology, this text introduces groundwater's role in the hydrologic cycle and in water supply, contamination, and construction issues; explains physical principles related to properties of subsurface materials, groundwater flow, groundwater geology, deformation, and flow modeling techniques; and addresses issues of groundwater chemistry and contamination. Field methods are integrated with principles of current flow modeling methods. Learning features include worked examples and problems, plus an appendix on units and conversions and a mathematics primer on algebra, geometry, and functions. Fitts teaches at the University of Southern Maine.
