About this book

Provides an overview of developments in both theory and applications, and represents a wide spectrum of views from different specialists. A valuable reference work for research workers and professionals in hydrology, environmental issues, petroleum and geological engineering, and applied mathematics.

'The book can be recommended to those with graduate level mathematical and statistical skills as a reference to the latest theoretical modelling techniques in subsurface hydrology. Also to those who wish to link modelling and experimental work in this area ! ' J. D. Cooper, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences
