About this book

This book is an introduction to hydrogeology and assumes that students have had one year of basic college calculus (differential and integral calculus). It's applicable for hydrogeololgy, geohydrology, groundwater and geologic fluids courses taken by juniors and seniors, and may also find application in graduate courses which emphasize the role of fluids in geologic applications.

The primary goal is to emphasize the geologic aspects of hydrogeology -- the text is not designed solely for those who desire to specialize in hydrogeology. Fluids are intimately involved in nearly all geologic processes, and this text is designed to introduce the average student to that world.
