Product Description

The successful investigation of the hydrogeology of an area depends on the collection of reliable field data. Field Hydrogeology, Third Edition follows a systematic approach to completing a hydrogeological study and explains how to decide on the measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required. Measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required. Measurements of groundwater levels, rainfall and evaporation spring and stream flows and the use of ground water tracer techniques are covered. There is a great deal of practical information on all aspects of planning and completion of field investigation and on the interpretation of field investigation and on the interpretation of field evidence. Advice on safety is also included.

This third edition has been fully revised and updated to bring the book into line with developments in environmental regulations. The order of the chapters reflects the structure of a hydrogeological project and the development of a conceptual model up to completion of a report. The focus is on current practical applications of hydrogeological investigations using new case histories and a new chapter on specialist techniques has been included.

  • Handy pocket-size for field research
  • Features case histories
  • Focuses on practical applications
  • Contains a new chapter on groundwater investigations

Field Hydrogeology, Third Edition is an invaluable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of geology, hydrogeology, environmental sciences and engineering, as well as a wide range of professionals working in the water resources and environmental protection fields.

This book is compact and yet rich with valuable information on carrying out every aspect of hydrgeological investigation. Written in a smooth, easy to understand way devoid of technical jargons, this book is the book that enabled me to distinguish between seemingly confusing terms in hydrogeology. It will increase your interest and knowledge in the all-important field of groundwater hydrology. Its practical approach is immensely valuable. A good buy anyday.

I am a senior Hydrogeologist with a consulting firm and I have a shelf full of Hydrogeology text books, however I find this is the one that is most book marked, most dog-eared, most scanned&emailed and most recommended in particular to graduates or people from other fields who need to do some hydro work.
For the Hydrogeology practitioner it's full of useful field method and there are very clear drawings of equipment needed on site, I have found this very valuable when working in places like Africa where sometimes you have to make the stuff from scratch.
The other great thing is the price which is exceptionally reasonable.
Cheers
Gerry

3.0 out of 5 stars The new edition is far superior. 24 Mar 2012
By Bob Rothman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I reviewed an early of this book and wrote "This book is very limited, so limited ..... Note it is not bad, just very, very limited, hence not very useful." I just read the Table of Contents and some other online parts for the new edition and it appears far, far superior. Since I did not read the whole thing I cannot comment further other than state my earlier comment should be disregarded.
