1st Edition

Fernando Olavo Franciss
August 23, 2018

Uniquely devoted to hard and fractured rock hydraulics, this advanced-level introduction provides tools to solve practical engineering problems. Chapter I covers the fundamentals of fractured rock hydraulics under a tensor approach. Chapter II presents some key concepts about approximate solutions....

Mathematical and Numerical Modeling in Porous Media: Applications in Geosciences

1st Edition

Martin A. Diaz Viera, Pratap Sahay, Manuel Coronado, Arturo Ortiz Tapia
August 16, 2018

Porous media are broadly found in nature and their study is of high relevance in our present lives. In geosciences porous media research is fundamental in applications to aquifers, mineral mines, contaminant transport, soil remediation, waste storage, oil recovery and geothermal energy deposits....

Hydrogeology: Groundwater Science and Engineering

1st Edition

Alain Dassargues
August 01, 2018

This text combines the science and engineering of hydrogeology in an accessible, innovative style. As well as providing physical descriptions and characterisations of hydrogeological processes, it also sets out the corresponding mathematical equations for groundwater flow and solute/heat...

Engineering Karstology of Dams and Reservoirs

1st Edition

Petar Milanović
May 18, 2018

Karst terrains have been modified and adapted through a range of human activities as the need for flood control, irrigation, food production, hydropower production and other resources has increased. Successful reclamation projects require construction of dams and reservoirs. Karst...

Two- and Three-Dimensional Flow of Groundwater

1st Edition

Florimond De Smedt, Wouter Zijl
February 16, 2018

This monograph is a practical guide to groundwater flow theory intended to serve students and practitioners by bridging the gap between basic hydrogeology and groundwater modeling. It synthesizes the mathematics of groundwater flow and provides information in an easily-accessible format for...

Sustainable Groundwater Resources in Africa: Water supply and sanitation environment

1st Edition

Yongxin Xu, Eberhard Braune
September 13, 2017

Empowering people, reducing poverty, improving livelihoods and promoting economic growth, while at the ensuring sustainable ecosystems, requires local, appropriate and widely replicable solutions. In the search for these, poor sanitation and poor water supply are major drivers in cycles of...

Groundwater Governance in the Indo-Gangetic and Yellow River Basins: Realities and Challenges

1st Edition

Aditi Mukherji, Karen G. Villholth, Bharat R. Sharma, Jinxia Wang
September 13, 2017

One of the key features of agricultural development in the last five decades has been intensive groundwater use in the Indo-Gangetic Basin (Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh) and in the Yellow River Basin (China). Groundwater irrigates almost 60% of the net irrigated area in South Asia and 70%...

Land Subsidence Mitigation: Aquifer Recharge Using Treated Wastewater Injection

1st Edition

Frank R. Spellman
August 30, 2017

This book examines the process of injecting treated wastewater into wells to replenish aquifers, and thereby slow the process of land subsidence, and help to mitigate coastal flooding. It explains how up to fifty percent of sea-level rise may be due to land subsidence, and up to fifty percent of...

Groundwater Response to Changing Climate

1st Edition

Makoto Taniguchi, Ian P. Holman
June 16, 2017

Groundwater systems are vital to both society and the environment, supporting food production and many other ecosystem services. Sustainable management of this vital resource for future generations requires a sound understanding of how groundwater might respond to the inevitable changes in future...

Engineering Hydrology of Arid and Semi-Arid Regions

1st Edition

Mostafa M. Soliman
June 14, 2017

The natural scarcity of water in arid and semiarid regions, aggravated by man-made factors, makes it difficult to achieve a reliable water resources supply. Communities in these areas pay the price for thousands of years of water manipulation. Presenting important insight into the complexities of...
