Quantitative Hydro-geoengineering: Calculations and Simulations explains how to develop effective quantitative solutions for applications in hydrogeology. The book's authors provide a systematic, hands-on approach to illustrate how hydrogeological concepts are translated into quantitative solutions. Topics explored include problems relating to contaminant migration, groundwater-surface water interactions, managed aquifer recharge, resources, infrastructure, and mining with illustrations from real-life projects using a variety of simulation methods that are easy-to-understand and have step-by-step quantitative analysis that is supported by illustrations/tables.

Key Features

  • Explains how to expertly prepare quantitative hydrogeological solutions and how to convey the associated results into real-life assignments
  • Includes practical, step-by-step techniques for data analysis and visualization (EVS Pro)]
  • Demonstrates the appropriate use of 3-D graphics and animations for environmental applications
