About this book

Focuses on the study of groundwater flow problems as well as providing a thorough analysis of real practical field case studies in order to develop an understanding of the interaction between the inputs, outputs and internal flow processes.

...well written and structured...a comprehensive and thorough reference source...highly recommended for anyone in the business... (Circulation N ltr of British Hydrological Soc, Feb 2004) "...delighted to have this book on my shelf and it is already becoming well hesitation in recommending it..." (Geoscientist, May 2004) "The information and techniques presented in this book provide illuminating guidelines and...directions for...hydrogeologists, geohydrologists and water resource engineers." (Hydrological Sciences Journal, Feb 2005, Vol 50 (1))
