Review

"I strongly recommend reading this book from cover to cover next time you have a long train or plane journey." ( Geoscientist, March 2008)

"I strongly recommend reading this book from cover to cover next time you have a long train or plane journey." ( Geoscientist, March 2008) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The successful investigation of the hydrogeology of an area depends on the collection of reliable field data. First, the available existing information must be identified and used to develop a preliminary conceptual understanding of the groundwater system in the area. This conceptual model is then used to identify the gaps in the available information and to plan a fieldwork programme to obtain the necessary data required to verify and improve the model. This book follows this systematic approach to completing a hydrogeological study and explains how to decide on the measurements which are needed and on the instruments and techniques used to make them. Measurements of groundwater levels, rainfall and evaporation, spring and stream flows and the use of groundwater tracer techniques are covered. There is a great deal of practical information on all aspects of planning and completing field investigations and on the interpretation of field evidence. Advice on safety aspects of field work is also included. This second edition has been fully revised and updated to cover advances in the use of electronic instruments and the needs of the environmental regulators. The scope has been widened to include the design and execution of pumping tests, and groundwater sampling methods to meet the protocols adopted by national environmental regulators. A chapter on report writing and the presentation of information is included. Field Hydrogeology is designed to assist anyone who is involved in the collection and interpretation of hydrogeological data. It is suitable 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.

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
