Media reviews
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)
