Providing an introduction to the crucially important topic of groundwater, this text covers all major fields of hydrogeology and includes outlines of the occurrence of groundwater in various rock types, the movement and storage of groundwater, the formulation of groundwater balances, the development of groundwater chemistry, as well as the practical application of hydrogeology for groundwater development. Following a unique systems approach to describe and connect its various elements, the text also explores a large selection of examples of groundwater cases from various parts of the world. In addition, theoretical sections and examples are illustrated with a number of drawings, photos and computer printouts. Suitable for education in hydrogeology at postgraduate and graduate level, the text is also a useful reference tool for professionals and decision-makers involved in water or water-related activities. In the revised paperback edition of Introduction to Hydrogeology (February 2006), suggestions of reviewers, students and collaegues have been taken into account. This means that more attention is paid to the processes in the unsaturated zone, especially those relating to groundwater recharge. Also, in the revised edition, the investigation methods are highlighted in the sections where the related theory is dealt with, and they are not presented in the last chapter on groundwater management. Chapter titles are re-named and some definitions are adjusted. The References and Bibliography section is also extended, some figures are improved, and the unevitable ‘typing errors’ are corrected as well.

Introduction to Physical Hydrology provides a solid grounding in the principles of the subject. Exploring the principal rules that govern the flow of water on the land, it considers the three major types of water: atmospheric, ground, and soil. It gives insights into the major hydrologicalprocesses, and shows how the principles of physical hydrology inform our understanding of climate and global hydrology - the large-scale study of hydrology with which we need to grapple to fully understand the impact of the climate on water supply.The study of physical properties is done most effectively through mathematical representations of concepts and processes. Introduction to Physical Hydrology includes a carefully-developed and class-tested learning framework: an extensive range of examples and exercises, and further maths support inthe form of a series of Maths Toolboxes help the reader engage with and understand the maths required to master the subject.With hydrology now being approached from environmental and social perspectives, in addition to the more traditional physical geography and civil engineering perspectives, there has never been a more important time to develop a sound understanding of the subject. Introduction to Physical Hydrology isthe perfect course companion while you develop this understanding.

Lessons can be learnt from the past; from time to time it is useful for practitioners to look back over the historical developments of their science. Hydrogeology has developed from humble beginnings into the broad church of investigatory procedures which collectively form the modern-day hydrogeologist’s tool box. Hydrogeology remains a branch of the over-arching science of geology and today provides analysis of the sub-surface part of the water cycle within a holistic approach to problem solving. The History of Hydrogeology, is a first attempt to bring the story of the evolution of the science of hydrogeology together from a country- or region-specific viewpoint. It does not cover history to the present day, nor does it deal with all countries involved in groundwater studies, but rather takes the story for specific key countries up and until about the period 1975 to 1980. This is when hydrogeology was still evolving and developing, and in some areas doing so quite rapidly. The book has been written not only for practitioners of hydrogeology and hydrology but also for teachers and students to see the context of the evolution of the science around the globe. The History of Hydrogeology will also be of interest to science historians and all those interested in the role that individuals, institutes and nations have played over the years in defining modern day studies of groundwater.

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.
