This is a comprehensive examination of water movement as well as the movement of various pollutants in the Earth's subsurface. Discussed as well as water is the movement of oil, gasoline, and other liquids that may serve as sources of contamination. A multidisciplinary approach covers the topics from both a scientific and engineering perspective, integrating such fields as Earth science, fluid mechanics, mathematics, statistics, and chemistry. Readers are provided with a full discussion of the practices, procedures, and rules for dealing with groundwater. Among topics covered are fluid and multifluid flow and transport, water movement in geological formations, well hydraulics, numerical solutions of the groundwater flow equation, contamination of subsurface water and remediation, and much more.
