About this book

The second edition of this well received and widely adopted textbook has been extensively revised to provide a more comprehensive treatment of hydromechanics (the coupling of groundwater flow and deformation), to incorporate findings from the substantial body of research published since the first edition, and to include three new chapters on compaction and diagenesis, metamorphism, and subsea hydrogeology. The opening section develops basic theory of groundwater motion, fluid-solid mechanical interaction, solute transport, and heat transport. The second section applies flow, hydromechanics, and transport theory in a generalized geologic context, and focuses on particular geologic processes and environments. A systematic presentation of theory and application coupled with problem sets to conclude each chapter make this text ideal for use by advanced undergraduate and graduate-level hydrogeologists and geologists. It also serves as an invaluable reference for professionals in the field.

Media reviews
' ! unreservably recommend[ed] ! as a teaching and reference text for anyone working on aqueous fluid-bearing environments in the Earth.' Marian Holness, Geological Magazine ' ! extremely well written, probably the best-written technical text I have ever encountered; the style is both lucid and concise, making it a joy to read.' Simon Bottrell, Geophysical Journal International ' ! an invaluable asset to any scientist, student and professional alike, who is studying mass and energy transport in Earth's upper crust ! a tremendous bargain.' Brian J.O.L. McPherson, GSA Today ' ! informative and thought provoking ! well written and comprehensive ! important reading for a wide range of professionals ! helpful in undergraduate and postgraduate education.' Juri Krasny, Hydrological Sciences Journal ' ! uniquely a hydrologic perspective of the role of groundwater as a geologic agent. ... Any reader interested in knowing more about the role of fluids in geologic systems ought to start with this book ... the authors specifically designed the book principally to serve as a teaching text. ... an excellent bargain and especially useful to all economic geologists curious about the geologic links between fluid migration, hydrothermal systems, and ore formation.' Grant Garven, Economic Geology 'I think that [the] text is outstanding ...' Andy Fisher, University of California at Santa Cruz 'I want to congratulate you on an excellent text. ... I am quite impressed with how thorough and clearly written it is. I think you guys have a winner here and it will be a BIG contribution to the geologic community.' Mark Person, University of Minnesota 'Opening [the] book was a shock. [The authors] have effectively merged high-tech physics with traditional geology. This is the first modern book that merits being labelled 'hydrogeology'. It will do very well.' Irwin Remson, Stanford University
