Features

  • Examines aquifer contamination-related problems based on both deterministic and stochastic approaches
  • Presents descriptions of well-known, industry-standard ground water and solute transport programs supported by examples
  • Consolidates solution techniques for various flow and contaminant transport scenarios, explains general basis, limitations, and media-specific input parameters of each solution technique
  • Includes broad coverage of practical analytical and numerical solutions to real flow and contaminant transport modeling scenarios
  • Summary

    Over recent years, important contributions on the topic of solving various aquifer problems have been presented in numerous papers and reports. The scattered and wide-ranging nature of this information has made finding solutions and best practices difficult. Comprehensive and self-contained, Applied Flow and Solute Transport Modeling in Aquifers compiles the scattered literature on the topic into a single-source reference of the most up-to-date information in the field.

    Based on Dr. Batu's 20 years of practical experience tackling aquifer problems in a myriad of settings, the book addresses essentially all currently applied aquifer flow and contaminant transport solutions, combines theory with practical applications, covers both analytical and numerical solutions, and includes solutions to real world contaminant transport modeling scenarios. Batu approaches the subject from the practicing consultant's point of view and elucidates the difficulties real world professionals have faced in solving aquifer flow and contamination problems.

    The author simplifies the necessary theoretical background as much as possible and provides all derivational details of the theoretical background as worked examples. He uses this method to explore how the derivations were generated for those who need to know while allowing others to easily skip them and still benefit and learn from the practical applications of the mathematical approaches. Containing 51 tables and 323 figures, the book covers both the breadth and the depth of currently applied aquifer flow and contaminant transport modeling solutions.

    Editorial Reviews

    "Dr. Batu has prepared a useful and well-organized text that presents basic and advanced methods used to model groundwater flow and solute transport. This text provides derivation of a wide range of analytical solute transport solutions, well-prepared graphics, and numerous examples illustrating their application. …These equations are underpinned with a clear explanation of basic theory. …This book includes a number of analytical solutions, and numerous tables and graphics that compile solute transport and hydraulic parameters not typically present in existing ground water or solute transport texts. Dr. Batu's Applied Flow and Solute Transport Modeling in Aquifers: Fundamental Principles and Analytical and Numerical Methods is certainly a reference text for working hydrogeologists and is an appropriate text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students studying and/or modeling the solute transport process."
