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of new and previously unpublished ideas, concepts, techniques,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
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
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.
