Product Description

Review

"Applied Groundwater Modeling will be a commonly used reference for students, academicians, consultants, and regulators. After years of trying to decipher and apply the cryptic methods and arcane notations used by numerical modelers of groundwater flow systems, these seeming mysteries are revealed in an easily understood manner. The terminology, methodologies, and case studies are presented with the eye of a research scientist, the nose of an academic, and the touch of an experienced practitioner. As a result, the reader will be rewarded with the fundamental knowledge needed to use these valuable tools." -- E. SCOTT BLAIR, DEPARTMENT OF GEOLOGY OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

From the Prepublication Reviews:

"A very significant contribution that addresses a longtime need among hydrologists and others using groundwater models. It will be kept on the work table and not on the bookshelf. It will establish a standard of quality with which future modeling studies will be preformed and reviewed." -- ALAN DUTTON, BUREAU OF ECONOMIC GEOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN

Format: Hardcover
This text outlines the basic principles and problems faced by young groundwater modelers. The comprehensive interpretation of common challenges are handled with reference to real case studies. Basic steady-state groundwater modeling is supplimented with transient examples. It is a great text for any groundwater modeling class at the undergraduate or graduate level.

This text was used in my groundwater modeling class and was useful and instructive specifically for GMS and MODFLOW. The binding split after normal use during the quarter to almost every student enrolled in the course.

1st class content - very bad print 28 Nov 2007
By Miljø Ressourcer DTU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is probably the best ever written on the subject. In other words, the content is really 1st class.
However, the print quality is so poor that I wonder how Anderson and Woessner or their 'managers' did ever even think about letting Elsevier do the print. It looks like something that come out of a fax machine. The figures are difficult to read. Grey-scales in figures have turned into slightly different tones of just black, and sometimes you need the Academic Press print of 1992 to fully understand the figures. The layout of tables that run over two or more pages have been altered to become inlogic compared to the Academic Press print version. Also the letters of the bulk text lacks reader friendliness. My advise is to look for the book printed by academic press and not by Elsevier.

Focus is on applying numerical codes 16 April 2009
By Simon Woodward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What I like about this book is the breadth it provides on the art and philosophy of groundwater modelling. It is really about the practice of applying existing codes, there is very little detail about the theory behind the codes. There are numerous examples mostly using FDM (MODFLOW, PLASM) and occasionally FEM codes (AQUIFEM-1), and lots of discussion on things to keep in mind. There are whole chapters on (1) boundary conditions (2) transient models and (3) conceptual models which I thought was great. There is a useful discussion on water balance too. There is very little however on unsaturated flow or solute transport, both of which get only a few pages in the last chapter.

Great book but the cover fell off due to poor binding 20 Mar 2000
By Eric A. Chatterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A great book for explaining the essentials of groundwater modeling including governing equations and statistical evaluation of numeric modeling. I just wish the publisher could produce a book that the cover didn't fall off within the first couple months of use.
