Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks: Second Edition by B.B.S. Singhal †

By B.B.S. Singhal †

Hydrogeology is a topical and turning out to be topic because the earth's water assets develop into scarcer and extra susceptible. greater than half the skin quarter of continents is roofed with difficult rocks of low permiability.

This e-book bargains comprehensively with the basic ideas for knowing the hydrogeological features of rocks, in addition to exploration concepts and review. It additionally presents intensive dialogue on structural mapping, distant sensing, geophysical exploration, GIS, groundwater move modelling and contaminant shipping, box hydraulic trying out together with tracer assessments, groundwater caliber, geothermal reservoirs, controlled aquifer recharge, and assets evaluate and management.

Hydrogeological facets of varied lithology teams, together with crystalline rocks, volcanic rocks, carbonate rocks and clastic formations were handled individually, utilizing and discussing examples from world wide. will probably be a useful textual content e-book cum reference resource for postgraduate scholars, researchers, exploration scientists and engineers engaged within the box of groundwater improvement in fractured rocks.

Applied Hydrogeology of Fractured Rocks - moment variation is punctiliously revised and prolonged with a brand new bankruptcy, up to date sections, many new examples, and elevated and up-to-date references.
