Overview

Effective and enduring site restoration involves professionals from many branches of science and engineering. Geologists, hydrologists, chemists, microbiologists and meteorologists all play a part in remediation efforts-as do civil, chemical, mechanical and environmental engineers.
When the time comes for all-important design calculations, that's where conflicts between disciplines become apparent. Due to certain differences in educational training, the ability of environmental professionals to perform or review design calculations varies.
Bridge the gap with Practical Design Calculations for Groundwater and Soil Remediation. Jeff Kuo's hands-on experience as a consultant and teacher of soil/groundwater remediation informs this collection of the most practical and relevant working information.
Written in a user-friendly, "cookbook-style" format, readers can promptly access the necessary information. More than 200 equations, coupled with tables and figures, allow a clear understanding of purposes and procedures.
To match the scope of Practical Design Calculations for Groundwater and Soil Remediation, you would have to comb through numerous publications. You may also be taking a chance on data that's already obsolete, due to rapid advancements in remediation technologies.
One aspect doesn 't change: basic, straightforward design calculation. Practical Design Calculations for Groundwater and Soil Remediation helps everyone involved in a site restoration project follow the same set of guidelines-for effective results.
