About this book
When it was published in 1991, the First Edition of the Practical Handbook of Ground-Water Monitoring established itself as the environmental professional's standard reference on the topic of ground-water monitoring. The Second Edition of the book, which has been significantly revised and expanded to cover environmental site characterization, emphasizes the practical application of current technology. The subjects of environmental site characterization and ground-water monitoring are covered in great detail, from the Federal regulations that govern environmental investigations, to the various direct and indirect methods of investigating the subsurface, to the analysis and interpretation of complex sets of environmental data. With the addition of the most up-to-date information available, this Second Edition provides the most comprehensive and current reference ever compiled on the topics addressed.
