Show synopsis Applied Hydrogeology, Third Edition gives students a balanced examination of how each facet of hydrogeology is related to other geologic fields. Suitable for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level courses, it offers a complete treatment of the elements of physical hydrology and the basic concepts of chemical and contaminant hydrogeology. The text stresses the application of mathematics to problem solving rather than derivation of theory, and numerous case studies cultivate student understanding of the occurrence and movement of ground water in a variety of geologic settings. Well-developed case studies clearly illustrate key concepts, and thorough appendices include tables covering various functions, unit conversions, and additional data for solving well hydraulics, water chemistry, and contaminant transport problems. This edition includes additional problems, a new discussion of the methods of problem solving using dimensional analysis, updated coverage of significant digits, a new section examining the work and responsibilities of field hydrologists, and the accompanying disk containing student versions of software used by ground-water professionals.
