Description of "Groundwater Assessment and Modelling (eBook)"

Groundwater development has shown phenomenal progress during past few decades. There has been a vast improvement in the perception, outlook and significance of groundwater resource. The unplanned groundwater development may result in fall of water levels, failure of wells, and salinity ingress in coastal areas. The development and over-exploitation of groundwater resources in many parts of the world have raised the concern and need for judicious and scientific resource management and conservation.

This book “Groundwater Assessment and Modelling” is intended to provide a comprehensive treatise on assessment and modelling of groundwater. It presents the related aspects on assessment of groundwater potential, groundwater data requirement and analysis, basic concepts and guidelines for groundwater modelling, groundwater modelling software, modelling of unsaturated flow, modelling of sea water intrusion, and impact of climate change on groundwater resources. The book is expected to be quite useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students (water resources engineering), field engineers and researchers working in the area of assessment, development and management of groundwater resources.

Excellently presented information on the subject that has been very helpful in learning more about the advances in the field. Intense intention to details and the well researched background really gives this book bang for the buck. I came away with an incredible number of cost saving concepts and new knowledge. Thumbs up.

One of the best books for groundwater assessment and modelling. This book covers most of the important aspects of a subject matter - groundwater assessment and modelling. Groundwater modeling aspect needs a strong fundamental understanding. This book has emphasized this aspect. I strongly recommend for undergraduate and postgraduate students who involved in groundwater studies.

The book provides a comprehensive assessment of groundwater potential, groundwater data requirement and analysis, basic concepts and guidelines for groundwater modelling, groundwater modelling software, modelling of unsaturated flow, modelling of sea water intrusion, and impact of climate change on groundwater resources. The book would be quite useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students (water resources engineering), field engineers and researchers working in the area of assessment, development and management of groundwater resources.
