Groundwater in Geologic Processes

Cambridge Press
By Steve Ingebritsen, Ward Sanford, and Chris Neuzil

The second edition of this well-received textbook has been revised to provide a more comprehensive treatment of hydromechanics, to incorporate findings published since the first edition, and to include three new chapters on compaction and diagenesis, metamorphism, and subsea hydrogeology.
The opening section of the book develops basic theory of groundwater motion, fluid-solid mechanical interaction, solute transport, and heat transport. The second section applies flow, hydromechanics, and transport theory in a generalized geologic context, and focuses on particular geologic processes and environments.
This text is ideal for use by advanced undergraduate and graduate-level hydrogeologists and geologists. It also can serve as a great reference for professionals in the field.

Public Fountains of the City of Dijon

translated by Patricia Bobeck
Kendall/Hunt Publishing

This is a complete translation of Henry Darcy's Les Fontaines publiques de la ville de Dijon, which he wrote in 1856. It describes the construction of Dijon's water supply system. In an appendix, Darcy describes his experiments on water flow through sand and the empirical law he concluded from the results. This law, which became known as Darcy's law, is the foundation of the science of hydrogeology. The translation makes Darcy now accessible to modern-day scientists. The book also includes 28 plates of engineering drawings that were originally published as a separate volume.

Wellsprings: A Natural History of Bottled Spring Water

by Francis H. Chapelle
Rutgers University Press

As U.S. Geological Survey hydrologist Francis H. Chapelle reveals in the delightful and informative Wellsprings: A Natural History of Bottled Spring Water, a complex story of geology, hydrology, and history lies behind every bottle of spring water. This book chronicles the history of the bottled water industry in America from its beginnings in Europe hundreds of years ago to the present day. In addition, Wellsprings describes the chemical characteristics that make some waters desirable and provides an overview of the geological circumstances that produce them. Accessibly written and well illustrated, this volume is both a revealing account and a user's guide to natural spring waters.
