Hydrology: Principles and practices provide a comprehensive introduction to hydrogelography to enable the reader to assess the importance of groundwater in meeting the challenges of current and future water resources. This new edition has been updated comprehensively to reflect progress in the field since 2004.
The book offers a systematic approach to understanding groundwater. The preceding chapters explain the basic physical and chemical principles of hydrography.
Subsequent chapters include techniques for investigating groundwater in the context of catchments, as well as chapters on groundwater quality and hydrologology of pollutants. The unique features of the book are chapters on the applications of environmental isotopes and noble gases in the evolution of aquifers, and on regional characteristics such as terrain, pressure, and variable fluid density in the interpretation of geological processes that affect groundwater flow in the past, present and future.
Systems. The last chapter discusses groundwater resources and environmental management and examines the role of groundwater in integrated river basin management, including assessment of possible adaptation responses to climate change impacts.
Throughout the text, boxes and a collection of colored plates from the authors' experience and scientific research are used to explain special topics and to illustrate international case studies ranging from transboundary aquifers and marine aquifers to overpressure of groundwater in sedimentary basins. The annexes provide useful conversion tables and reference materials, including questions and review exercises, with answers, to help develop reader knowledge and problem solving skills in hydrography.
This accessible textbook for basic reading for undergraduate students and postgraduate students is primarily in Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences and Physical Geography with an interest in Hydrology or Aquaculture. The book will also find use among practitioners in hydrology, hydrology, soil science, civil engineering and planning who are involved in issues of environmental protection and resources that require understanding of groundwater.
