Overview

In the past two or three decades, fractured rock domains have received increasing attention not only in reservoir engineering and hydrology, but also in connection with geological isolation of radioactive waste. Locations in both the saturated and unsaturated zones have been under consideration because such repositories are sources of heat and potential sources of groundwater contamination. Thus, in addition to the transport of mass of fluid phases in single and multiphase flow, the issues of heat transport and mass transport of components have to be addressed.

Booknews
Presents the state of the art on flow and tracer transport in fractured rock domains as viewed by scientists working in different disciplines, for the benefit of researchers and practitioners. Among the topics in nine chapters: modeling flow and contaminant transport in fractured rocks; solute transport in fractured rock--applications to radionuclide waste repositories; solute transport through fracture networks; tracer transport in fracture systems; multiphase flow in fractured petroleum reserves; and a summary of field test methods in fractured rocks.
