Revised and updated, this second edition presents new coverage of aquifers, springs, US federal regulations, groundwater withdrawal, and land subsidence and includes new international case studies. Chapters cover hydrogeologic fundamentals, aquifers conceptual models, planning surface and subsurface investigations, history of hydrogeology field inventory, stream flow, water quality measurements, porosity and hydraulic conductivity, and report preparation.
The book also contains source information for additional study, as well as a glossary. The book includes a CD-ROM with groundwater models that allow readers to design their own aquifer tests.
Praise for the First Edition: "... fills a great need to beginning hydrologists and hydrogeologists as a guide for site investigations and report preparation. It ... also contains a very interesting and important section on rules for professional conduct. ... It is a particularly good reference as the author, a geologist, identifies the important role that geologists play in the study of the source, occurrence, movement, quality, and quantity of groundwater. There [is] an excellent outline for the preparation of hydrogeologic reports. The last chapter provides four excellent case histories as good examples for a new hydrogeologist on his first assignment." --P.E. LaMoreaux, Editor-in-Chief, Environmental Geology (2003) 44:876
