Deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding these rocks, as well as with exploration techniques and assessment. It also provides in-depth discussion of structural mapping, remote sensing, geophysical exploration, GIS, field hydraulic testing, groundwater quality and contamination, geothermal reservoirs, and resources assessment and management.
From the reviews of the previous edition: "In all, Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks helps fill the need for a primer in fractured rocks hydrology. It should prove particularly useful to consultants confronted with fractured rock systems, and are in need of some pointers." (M. Becker, Hydrogeology Journal (2002) 10: 600) "The book has much in it, but nevertheless it must be mentioned that like most of the rest of the book there is a strong section on fractures and discontinuities and their impacts on principles of groundwater flow and solute transport. I recommend that you persuade your paymasters to purchase one copy for your library." (Robin Herbert, Geoscience and Development 6, May 2000)
