About this book

The 2nd edition of "Groundwater Geochemistry - A practical guide to modeling of natural and contaminated aquatic systems" remains the comprehensive text book offering beginners and advanced modellers alike a minimum theoretical background and a strong focus on the practical solution of geochemical modeling with PHREEQC.

The new edition covers the possibility to use PITZER equation and the CD music concept within the new version of PHREEQC. Examples for reactive transport use PHREEQC's 1d features with multicomponent diffusion as well as PHAST with the graphical user interface GoPhast on 2d and 3d examples. Implementing uncertainties of thermodynamically data is addressed by means of the program Ljungskile. As in the 1st edition, detailed descriptions on how to solve each problem step by step guide the user from basic to more and more advanced hydrogeochemical modelling.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "Merkel and Planer-Friedrich ! provide an excellent introduction to hydrogeochemical modeling for analyzing natural and human impacts on aquatic systems. ! it is intended as a practical guide to modeling, but it will make an excellent supplementary resource for the students. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (M. S. Field, CHOICE, November, 2005) "This book focuses on giving practical support for geochemical modelling ! . Is it worthwhile to buy this book ! ? Absolutely yes! ! Altogether 69 clearly and carefully explained exercises are provided to enhance the knowledge step-by-step. ! This book is recommended to all those with some basic hydrogeological or chemical understanding, to graduate students in geosciences, environmental sciences or related studies as well as to representatives of public authorities and enterprises who want to understand the hydrogeochemical interactions better." (Andreas Winkler, Environmental Geology, Vol. 48, 2005)
