Description


An integrated coverage of the subjects of surface, subsurface, and contaminant hydrology. The author presents the fundamental concepts of physical and contaminant hydrology of watersheds, rivers, lakes, soils, and aquifers in an easy and accessible manner to the environmental professional.

  • Prepares the reader to analyze today's environmental problems.
  • Many practical examples and solved problems illustrate the concepts. This edition includes clear presentation of concepts, consistent notation, 124 solved examples, 187 proposed problems, 152 illustrations, 71 tables, 46 short computer programs in MAPLE, answers to problems, extensive bibliography.
  • State of the art research on groundwater and contaminant transport modeling is explained in a clear fashion.
  • Recent research developments in nonlinear hydrologic science and simulation are included in this new edition.
  • New solutions of nonlinear infiltration are presented with simple numerical applications.
  • New developments in analytical decomposition are presented as simple and practical means to complex nonlinear hydrologic problems, such as regional groundwater flow modeling in homogeneous or heterogeneous media, regular or irregularly-shaped domains, steady or transient problems, multiple pumping wells, and nonlinear flow.
  • For contaminant transport, new applications to the simulation of nonlinear decay, nonlinear sorption, and unsaturated-saturated zones contaminant propagation are presented along with simple programs.
