Gelände- und Kartierarbeiten stellen die wichtigsten Grundlagen für die Bearbeitung hydrogeologischer Fragestellungen dar. Hierbei sind alle im Gelände und beim Kartieren beobachteten Details und deren Deutung im Hinblick auf das Grundwasser und die hydrogeologischen Prozesse zu dokumentieren, um sie als Basis späterer Aussagen, etwa in Gutachten, Berichten und Veröffentlichungen, zu nutzen. Der Inhalt dieses Buches basiert auf den Kenntnissen von Wilhelm Coldewey im Bereich der Consulting-Tätigkeit, der hydrogeologischen Kartierung und der Kartenerstellung. Insbesondere sind seine Erfahrungen eingeflossen, die er bei der Erstellung des Hydrologischen Kartenwerkes des Rheinisch-Westfälischen Steinkohlenbezirksgewonnen hat. Patricia Göbel bringt ihre umfangreichen Erfahrungen aus den Bereichen der Gelände- und Laboruntersuchungen im Rahmen der studentischen Ausbildung und der Erwachsenen-Weiterbildung ein. Das Buch stellt eine Einführung für Studierende der Geowissenschaften und der Hydrologie und eine Vertiefung für Fachleute der Geowissenschaften und der Wasserversorgung dar. Bei der Abfassung der Texte und der Gestaltung der Abbildungen haben die Autoren darauf geachtet, auch für fachfremde Leser verständlich zu schreiben. Bei den verschiedenen Messverfahren beschreiben sie bewusst auch einfache Methoden, welche die Kosten für die Geländeuntersuchungen gering halten und Messungen auch unter einfachsten Bedingungen, z.B. in Entwicklungsländern, ermöglichen.

From the reviews: "...is a "must" for serious field novices, and for seasoned middle-career and senior practitioners in hydrogeology, mainly those people who answer a calling to offer honest and accurate hydrogeological approximations and findings. Any engineering geologist or groundwater geologist who claims capability as a "Hydrogeologist" should own this book and submit it to highlighting and page tabbing. Of course, the same goes for those who practice in karst terranes, as author LaMoreaux is one of the pioneers in this field, worldwide..." (Allen W. Hatheway)

FROM THE PREFACE The approach of this book is "how-to-do and hands-on." Its purpose is to provide clear, step-by-step instruction in many of the fundamental methods of hydrogeologic investigation. These methods include both 1) the traditional techniques of data analysis, such as mathematical computation by electronic calculator and construction of graphs by hand-plotting, and 2) microcomputer techniques employing electronic spreadsheets, graphing and gridding and contouring software. The microcomputer methods employ commercial software such as Lotus 1-2-3. Microsoft Excel, Quattro-Pro, Golden Software's Grapher and Surfer, and Geraghty and Miller's AQTESOLV. Although familiarity with any of the applications is helpful, the instructions in this manual assume no prior experience with them. Basic Hydrogeologic Methods is divided into three sections: Groundwater Occurrence and Movement, Groundwater Investigations, and Well and Aquifer Hydraulics. Each section begins with a brief summary of relevant terminology and principles. This introductory chapter is followed by a case study, which may be employed to provide a practical context for the hydrogeological methods that are described in subsequent chapters. Most of the methodological exercises culminate in an analytical product, such as data table, graph, contour map, etc., which readily serve as a focus for problem-solving activities, classroom discussions, and investigative reports. Many of the exercises present at least two investigative methods for accomplishing a particular hydrogeologic task. For example, time-drawdown graphs may be produced by a hand-plotting method or by a microcomputer method. For the professional scientist, the choice of a particular method might depend on such factors as the time available to carry out the task, the degree of accuracy required, or the availability of assessory equipment and materials. The introductory student can work through a more fundamental method (e.g., hand-plotting) before advancing to a microcomputer method (e.g., spreadsheet and graphing).

"Hydrogeology is a field of national importance. The role of hydrogeologists in identifying water resources and developing management strategies for sustainable groundwater use is very important. Massive population explosion and concentration in cities has resulted in over exploitation of groundwater and scarcity. New problems like sea water intrusion and identification of suitable artificial recharge mechanisms to replenish the depleting water levels are increasingly been discussed by a broad spectrum of stakeholder. The book mainly attempts at integrating information on the entire range of the subject: Hydrogeology with stress on geological concepts. With the arrival of new techniques like GIS, Remote Sensing and GPS armed with the power of modern information technology, integrated groundwater studies have a lot of scope today. Hence this book attempts to introduce GIS modeling and works in that direction."

This book provides an introduction to the scientific fundamentals of groundwater and geothermal systems. In a simple and didactic manner the different water and energy problems existing in deformable porous rocks are explained as well as the corresponding theories and the mathematical and numerical tools that lead to modeling and solving them. This approach provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the basic physical laws of thermoporoelastic rocks, the partial differential equations representing these laws and the principal numerical methods, which allow finding approximate solutions of the corresponding mathematical models. The book also presents the form in which specific useful models can be generated and solved. The text is introductory in the sense that it explains basic themes of the systems mentioned in three areas: engineering, physics and mathematics. All the laws and equations introduced in this book are formulated carefully based on fundamental physical principles. This way, the reader will understand the key importance of mathematics applied to all the subjects. Simple models are emphasized and solved with numerous examples. For more sophisticated and advanced models the numerical techniques are described and developed carefully. This book will serve as a synoptic compendium of the fundamentals of fluid, solute and heat transport, applicable to all types of subsurface systems, ranging from shallow aquifers down to deep geothermal reservoirs. The book will prove to be a useful textbook to senior undergraduate and graduate students, postgraduates, professional geologists and geophysicists, engineers, mathematicians and others working in the vital areas of groundwater and geothermal resources.
