- Introduces the geological setting and simple and advanced groundwater flow and contaminant transport problems
- Discusses the unsaturated zone and the movement and measurement of soil moisture, infiltration, preferential paths, and contaminant transport theory and modeling
- Explores aquifer characterization and statistical tools that portray the uncertainties and scale issues of the geological environment
- Elucidates current understanding of flow and contaminant transport in saturated media, fractured media, and in karst aquifers
- Details how to model flow and contaminant transport in the saturated and unsaturated zones and includes model validation
- Examines seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers from theoretical and modeling viewpoints
A complete treatment of the theory and practice of groundwater engineering, The Handbook of Groundwater Engineering, Second Edition provides a current and detailed review of how to model the flow of water and the transport of contaminants both in the unsaturated and saturated zones, covers the production of groundwater and the remediation of contaminated groundwater.
