By B.B.S. Singhal †

Hydrogeology is a topical and transforming into topic because the earth's water assets develop into scarcer and extra weak. greater than 1/2 the outside quarter of continents is roofed with not easy rocks of low permiability.


This publication bargains comprehensively with the elemental rules for figuring out the hydrogeological features of rocks, in addition to exploration recommendations and evaluation. It additionally presents intensive dialogue on structural mapping, distant sensing, geophysical exploration, GIS, groundwater circulate modelling and contaminant shipping, box hydraulic trying out together with tracer assessments, groundwater caliber, geothermal reservoirs, controlled aquifer recharge, and assets overview and management.


Hydrogeological points of assorted lithology teams, together with crystalline rocks, volcanic rocks, carbonate rocks and clastic formations were handled individually, utilizing and discussing examples from worldwide. it will likely be a useful textual content e-book cum reference resource for postgraduate scholars, researchers, exploration scientists and engineers engaged within the box of groundwater improvement in fractured rocks.


Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks - moment variation is carefully revised and prolonged with a brand new bankruptcy, up to date sections, many new examples, and extended and up to date references.

Simulation Modeling for Watershed Management

A dialogue of the position of modeling within the administration strategy, with an outline of cutting-edge modeling functions. the 1st chapters offer a history at the merits and prices of modeling and at the ecological foundation of versions, utilizing ancient functions as examples, whereas the second one part describes the most recent types from a big variety of environmental disciplines.

Coastal Wetlands: An Integrated Ecosystem Approach

Coastal wetlands are less than loads of strain from the twin forces of emerging sea point and the intervention of human populations either alongside the estuary and within the river catchment. Direct affects contain the destruction or degradation of wetlands from land reclamation and infrastructures. oblique affects derive from the release of toxins, adjustments in river flows and sediment provides, land clearing, and dam operations.

Thermal and Mineral Waters: Origin, Properties and Applications (Environmental Earth Sciences)

This can be a compilation of manuscripts on mineral and thermal waters of alternative parts of the area. This targeted quantity is dedicated to the forty first assembly of the fee on Mineral and Thermal Waters of foreign organization of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CMTW) held in Cairo, Egypt, in October 2009. The shows accrued and awarded during this quantity express the range of features of mineral and thermal waters incidence and usage in several international locations of the realm with a different concentrate on Egypt, Iran, Ukraine, Poland, Russia and Australia.

An Introduction to Soil Mechanics (Theory and Applications of Transport in Porous Media)

This textbook bargains a great creation to theoretical and useful soil mechanics. specific realization is given to the hazards of failure in civil engineering, and subject matters coated contain stresses in soils, groundwater move, consolidation, trying out of soils, and balance of slopes. Readers will examine the key ideas and techniques of soil mechanics, and an important equipment of picking out soil parameters either within the laboratory and in situ.
