FIELD HYDROGEOLOGY RICK BRASSINGTON PDF

Rick Brassington The successful investigation of the hydrogeology of an area depends on the collection of reliable field data. Field Hydrogeology, Third Edition follows a systematic approach to completing a hydrogeological study and explains how to decide on the measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required. Measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required. Measurements of groundwater levels, rainfall and evaporation spring and stream flows and the use of ground water tracer techniques are covered. There is a great deal of practical information on all aspects of planning and completion of field investigation and on the interpretation of field investigation and on the interpretation of field evidence.

Field Hydrogeology follows a systematic approach to completing a hydrogeological study and explains how to decide on the measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required.

Measurements that are needed and on the instruments and techniques required. Measurements of groundwater levels, rainfall and evaporation spring and stream flows and the use of ground water tracer techniques are covered.

There is a great deal of practical information on all aspects of planning and completion of field investigation and on the interpretation of field investigation and on the interpretation of field evidence. Advice on safety is also included. This third edition has been fully revised and updated to bring the book into line with developments in environmental regulations.

The order of the chapters reflects the structure of a hydrogeological project and the development of a conceptual model up to completion of a report. The focus is on current practical applications of hydrogeological investigations using new case histories and a new chapter on specialist techniques has been included.

Field Hydrogeology is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of geology, hydrogeology, environmental sciences and engineering, as well as a wide range of professionals working in the water resources and environmental protection fields.

Field hydrogeology

Full Text Journal of Hydrology www. It will spark the interest of anyone involved in using, collecting, and interpreting hydrogeological data, i. The book is especially noteworthy for its organization from the hydrogeologic investigation point of view. Chapter 4 outlines the initial hydrogeologic investigation—the important stagesetting desk study—and appropriately emphasizes the need to synthesize information from different sources. Chapter 11 discusses the needs of special investigations pertinent to new groundwater supplies; waste disposal sites; lowering or rising water tables; and groundwater contamination, remediation, and modeling. The remaining chapters provide a wealth of information about the necessary instruments, auxiliary equipment, and procedures used historically and today to collect soil and water samples as well as data on groundwater levels, surface-water flows and levels, rainfall and evaporation, and water-quality parameters. Detailed figures and pictures complement the text nicely.
