About this book

From the reviews: "Groundwater Geophysics demonstrates the use of geophysics for the detection and delineation of groundwater resources. ! This book covers a lot of material in geophysics and does a pretty good job of it. Besides serving as a reference book, I could see this book being used as a textbook for a groundwater geophysics course. ! The index at the end of the book is extensive ! . I think this book would be a good addition to the bookshelf of a geophysicist ! ." (David C. Bartel, The Leading Edge, January, 2007) From the reviews of the second edition: "This book is a collection of independent chapters written by 27 contributing authors, most of whom have academic or research backgrounds. ! it is targeted toward both students and professionals. ! Groundwater Geophysics: A Tool for Hydrogeology has a strong northern European emphasis in both the technologies and applications presented. The text provides good phenomenological descriptions, and there are extensive reference lists for additional reading. ! a well-packaged ! and it is a useful library resource." (Peeter E. Pehme, Environmental & Engineering Geoscience, Vol. XVII (1), February, 2011)
