Practical Hydrogeology: Principles and Field Applications, Third Edition

by: Willis D. Weight, Ph.D., P.E.


Abstract: Master the latest advances in hydrogeology using this fully updated resource. This thoroughly revised guide clearly explains cutting-edge hydrogeology techniques that can be applied in the field. Featuring contributions from leading experts, Practical Hydrogeology: Principles and Field Applications, Third Edition, shows how to plan and conduct site investigations, avoid pitfalls in the field, interpret a wide array of data types gathered, and prepare water-quality reports. You will get complete coverage of key procedures, including aquifer testing, groundwater sampling, water-quality assessment, aquifer characterization, and tracer tests. This third edition has been reorganized and expanded with up-to-date information, a new chapter, review questions, and real-world examples. Coverage includes: • Field hydrogeology • The geology of hydrogeology • Aquifer properties • Groundwater flow • Pumping tests • Slug testing • Aquifer hydraulics • Water chemistry sampling • Groundwater/surface-water interaction • Vadose-zone analysis • Karst hydrogeology and tracer tests • Drilling and well completion
