This book deals with the concept of moments, and how they find application in subsurface hydrologic problems-particularly those dealing with solute transport. This book will be very valuable to researchers who are beginning to learn about moment analysis, and will also be of interest to advanced researchers as well. Both temporal and spatial moments are dealt with in some detail for a wide variety of problems. Several examples using experimental data, both from laboratory columns and field experiments, are provided to give the readers a clear idea about the scope of this method. Apart from conventional uses of moments for solute transport problems, this book contains chapters dealing with use of moments in interval computing, vapour phase transport applications, transfer functions to subsurface tile drains, and construction of breakthrough curves from knowledge of moments.
From the reviews: "This book studies specific aspects of moment analysis for PDE governing the contaminant transport analysis; it contains 12 chapters. ! A large number of experimental data illustrate the theoretical results. The mathematical tools are presented in a very elegant form, useful also for students and for advanced researchers. A large reference list is given." (Gelu Pasa, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1128 (6), 2008)
