Tracers in Hydrology and Water Research is a comprehensive overview of the application of natural and artificial tracers in hydrology and environmental research. Taking a unique approach by providing the reader with a systematic and state of the art description of natural and artificial tracers, the book also covers key analytical techniques and applications, and modern tracer methods in the context of systematic hydrology. Tracers have become a primary tool for process investigation, qualitative and quantitative system analysis and integrated resource management. This book will outline the fundamentals of the subject, and examine the latest research findings, clearly showing the entire process of tracer application through the inclusion of numerous integrated case studies. As many techniques derive from different scientific disciplines (chemistry, biology, physics), the effort of compilation and integration into modern hydrology and environmental science research and application requires substantial continuity and experience, which certifies this group of authors. This book will be an invaluable reference not only for students and researchers within the field of Hydrology and Hydrogeology but also for engineers and other tracer techniques applying users.

Originally published in 1989, Karst Geomorphology andHydrology became the leading textbook on karststudies. This new textbook has been substantially revised andupdated. The first half of the book is a systematic presentation of thedissolution kinetics, chemical equilibria and physical flow lawsrelating to karst environments. It includes details of themany environmental factors that complicate their chemicalevolution, with a critique of measurement of karst erosionrates. The second half of the book looks at the classificationsystem for cave systems and the influence of climate and climaticchange on karst development. The book ends with chapters onkarst water resource management and a look at the important issuesof environmental management, including environmental impactassessment, environmental rehabilitation, tourism impacts andconservation values. Practical application of karst studiesare explained throughout the text. "This new edition strengthens the book's position as theessential reference in the field. Karst geoscientists will not dareto stray beyond arm's reach of this volume. It is certain to remainthe professional standard for many decades." Journal of Cave andKarst Studies, August 2007

This book comprises selected and fully-refereed papers from the BGRG Annual Conference, 'Tracers in Geomorphology'. which was held in September 1998. The theme chosen for the conference reflects the growing interest amongst the geomorphological community in studies of fine sediment provenance and in the development of methods for tracing coarse sediments. Tracers in Geomorphology is the first book which contains a state-of-the-art review of the use of tracer technologies for coarse and fine sediment transport in a range of geomorphological environments and over a range of time-scales. It is divided into six sections; background and recent developments, atmospheric and hydrological tracers, tracers for investigating soil erosion and hill-slope processes, tracing fluvial sediments, tracers for coastal transport studies and tracers in palaeoenvironmental investigations. Authored by international experts in their field, this book will be of enormous value to postgraduates, researchers and professionals in the fields of geomorphology, hydrology, environmental, earth and soil science, coastal and catchment management.
