Description

GIS and Geostatistical Techniques for Groundwater Science provides a detailed synthesis of the application of GIS and geostatistics in groundwater studies. As the book illustrates, GIS can be a powerful tool for developing solutions for water resource problems, assessing water quality, and managing water resources. Beginning with an introduction to the history of GIS and geostatistical techniques in groundwater studies, the book then describes various spatial techniques, including case studies for various applications, from quality assessment, to resource management. This book assembles the most up-to-date techniques in GIS and geostatistics as they relate to groundwater, one of our most important natural resources.

Key Features

  • Provides details on the application of GIS and statistics in groundwater studies
  • Includes practical coverage of the use of spatial analysis techniques in groundwater science
  • Bridges the gap between geostatistics and GIS as it relates to groundwater science and management
  • Offers worldwide case studies to illustrate various techniques and applications in addressing groundwater issues

Readership

Geologists, Geophysicists, Geochemists, Environmentalists, Hydrogeologists, Soil scientists, environmental engineers
