In order to properly plan, design, and operate groundwater resources projects, it is necessary to measure - over time or distance - pertinent groundwater variables such as drawdown and discharge in the field. Applied Hydrogeology for Scientists and Engineers shows how to assess and interpret these data by subsurface geological setup and processing. The book helps readers estimate relevant groundwater parameters such as storativity, transmissivity, and leakage coefficient. The text addresses many interrelated disciplines such as geology, hydrology, hydrogeology, engineering, petroleum geology, and water engineering. Traditional and current models for application are presented. One of the unique features of the book is the inclusion of new and previously unpublished ideas, concepts, techniques, approaches, and procedures developed by the author. Among these are hydrogeophysical concepts, slope matching techniques, volumetric approach solution for complicated groundwater flows, non-Darcian flow law applications, aquifer sample functions, dimensionless-type straight line methods, non-linear flow-type curves, discharge calculations from early time-drawdown data, storage coefficient estimation procedure for quasi-steady state flow, and much more. The pitfalls in aquifer test analysis are also detailed. Fractured medium flow adds yet another dimension to the book. Each method is supplemented by actual field data applications from worldwide case studies. Applied Hydrogeology for Scientists and Engineers covers the topics of groundwater reservoirs, the evaluation of aquifer parameters, aquifer and flow properties, flow properties and bore hole tests, aquifer tests in porous and fractured media, well hydraulics, groundwater flow and aquifer tests, and field measurements and their interpretations. This new reference also works well as a post-graduate textbook on the subject. Applied Hydrogeology for Scientists and Engineers expands the reader's knowledge by providing valuable information not found in any other publication.

Hydrology is a topical and growing subject, as the earth's water resources become scarcer and more vulnerable. Although more than half the surface area of continents is covered with hard fractured rocks, there has until now been no single book available dealing specifically with fractured rock hydrogeology. This book deals comprehensively with the fundamental principles for understanding these rocks, as well as with exploration techniques and assessment. It also provides in-depth discussion of structural mapping, remote sensing, geophysical exploration, GIS, field hydraulic testing, groundwater quality and contamination, geothermal reservoirs, and resources assessment and management. Hydrogeological aspects of various lithology groups, including crystalline rocks, volcanic rocks, carbonate rocks and clastic formations, are dealt with separately, using and discussing examples from all over the world. Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks will be an invaluable reference source for postgraduate students, researchers, exploration scientists, and engineers engaged in the field of groundwater development in fractured rock areas.

Von der Mitte des letzten Jahrhunderts bis zum Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs reicht die Zeitspanne, die diese große amerikanische Familiensaga umfaßt. Sie erzählt die Geschichte der Trasks und der Hamiltons: die Geschichte von Charles und Adam, den ungleichen Brüdern, die um die Liebe ihres Vaters buhlen und den Reizen derselben Frau erliegen. Von eben jener Cathy, die ihren Mann und die neugeborenen Zwillinge verlässt, um sich ihren Lebensunterhalt in einem Bordell zu verdienen. Und von Aron und Caleb, ihren beiden Söhnen, deren spannungsgeladenes Verhältnis in einer moderen Version des biblischen Kainsmythos gipfelt.

Die Autoren konzentrieren sich in ihrem Werk auf die Lösung praxisorientierter hydrogeochemischer Fragestellungen und schließen damit eine Lücke im Bereich anwendungsorientierter Lehrbücher. Ein erster Teil fasst dabei die Theorie soweit zusammen, daß es auch Neulingen im Bereich der Modellierung und Nichtchemikern leicht gemacht wird, das anspruchsvolle Thema zu erfassen. Akademikern mit hydrogeologischer oder chemischer Grundausbildung sowie Studenten höherer Semester in den relevanten Fachgebieten erlaubt das Buch, anhand der beschriebenen Beispiele und Lösungen, eine eigenständige Erarbeitung der Sachverhalte. Die beiliegende CD-ROM ermöglicht zudem eine rasche Überprüfung der Ergebnisse, bzw. das Nachvollziehen aller Aufgaben und Lösungen anhand der beigefügten PhreeC-Eingabedateien. Da das Programm PhreeC kostenfrei verfügbar ist und mit Windows-Oberfläche auf der CD-ROM vorhanden ist, kann sofort mit der Modellierung begonnen werden.

Stochastic Subsurface Hydrogeology is the study of subsurface, geological heterogeneity, and its effects on flow and transport process, using probabilistic and geostatistical concepts. This book presents a rational, systematic approach for analyzing and modeling subsurface heterogeneity, and for modeling flow and transport in the subsurface, and for prediction and decision-making under uncertainty. The book covers the fundamentals and practical aspects of geostatistics and stochastic hydrogeology, coupling theoretical and practical aspects, with examples, case studies and guidelines for applications, and provides a summary and review of the major developments in these areas.

Die Einführung für Einsteiger und das Nachschlagewerk für die Praxis Hydrogeologie, die Wissenschaft vom unterirdischen Wasser, hat sich aus der Geologie zu einem eigenständigen Zweig der Wissenschaft entwickelt. Unter dem Aspekt des quantitativen und qualitativen Grundwasserschutzes gewinnt sie mehr und mehr an Bedeutung. Hydrogeologie erforscht die Herkunft und die Vorräte, die Bewegungsgesetze und die Dynamik, die physikalischen und chemischen Eigenschaften und die wirtschaftliche Bedeutung des Grundwassers, sie untersucht die Erschließung und Nutzung des Grundwassers sowie dessen Beeinträchtigungen durch menschliche Aktivitäten. Hydrogeologie ist eine interdisziplinäre Wissenschaft, in der Teilgebiete der Geologie, Hydrologie, Meteorologie, Chemie, Biologie, Physik und der Ingenieurwissenschaften zusammenfließen. Für die Neuauflage haben Bernward Hölting und Wilhelm. G. Coldewey den Text überarbeitet. Um die Aufgaben und die fachliche Verzahnung der Hydrogeologie noch besser darstellen zu können wurden in dieser Neuauflage die Abschnitte „Grundwasserhydraulik“, „Wasserrecht“ und „Grundwasserbelastung“ grundlegend neu bearbeitet. Die Kapitel über „Wasserbeschaffenheit" und „Angewandte Hydrogeologie“ wurden erweitert. Zahlreiche Abschnitte, wie „Geohydraulische Untersuchungen“ und „Mikrobiologie des Grundwassers“, „Wassergewinnung", „Bauen im Grundwasser" und „Regenwasserversickerung" wurden neu aufgenommen. Unter didaktischen Gesichtspunkten wurden viele Abbildungen neu erstellt und wichtige Gleichungen und Textabschnitte farbig hervorgehoben. Das Buch bietet wichtige Informationen zu den heute wesentlichen Fragen und Problemen des Grundwassers. Es hat sich als Einführung für Studierende und Fachleute der Geowissenschaften und der Wasserversorgung wie auch für andere Interessierte aus den Bereichen der Ingenieur- und Naturwissenschaften bestens etabliert. Stimmen zum Buch: Das erstmals 1980 veröffentlichte Lehrbuch vermittelt für Studierende aber auch für Wasserwirtschaftler, die sich mit hydrogeologischen Problemen im Berufsalltag befassen, das notwendige Grundwissen in allgemein verständlicher und übersichtlicher Form. Wasser und Abfall Das Buch ist eine wertvolle Navigationshilfe durch die vielfältigen Aspekte der grundwasserrelevanten Prozesse und gibt auch Nichtfachleuten wichtige Hilfestellung bei der Grundlagenermittlung hydrogeologischer Fragestellungen.

In 1980, Nagra, the Swiss National Cooperative for the Storage of Radioactive Waste, began a comprehensive field investigation programme to assess the feasibility and safety of a repository for the final disposal of high-level radioactive waste in northern Switzerland. An international team of scientists has carried out a comprehensive study on the isotope hydrogeology of deep groundwaters. One of the major implications of this work pertains to the storage of radioactive waste. The study goes far beyond an in-depth regional study as it draws together the results of diverse techniques, many of which have been re-evaluated or further developed. This book presents in great detail the results of one of the most comprehensive isotope hydrology studies ever undertaken.
