Format:Paperback
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.
