Overview

The successful investigation of the hydrogeology of an area depends on the collection of reliable field data. Field Hydrogeology 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.

Field Hydrogeology 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.

  • handy pocket-size for field research
  • updated and revised edition featuring case histories
  • focuses on current practical applications

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a work first published in 1988. Presents a conceptual model of how to investigate the hydrology of an area and explains how to decide on the measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques used to make them. Measurements of groundwater levels, rainfall and evaporation, spring and stream flows, the use of groundwater tracer techniques, and safety aspects of field work are discussed. Additional topics included in this edition are the design and execution of pumping tests, groundwater sampling methods to meet the protocols adopted by national environmental regulators, and report writing and information presentation.
