About this book

Geophysical techniques can map the underground conditions apart from boreholes. The use of these methods for hydrogeological applications is demonstrated for mapping of porous and structural aquifers, determination of groundwater quality (mineralization), assessment of hydraulic properties, determination of aquifer vulnerability and mapping of contaminated sites. Additionally, a description of geophysical techniques used for groundwater studies is given including seismics, resistivity methods, magnetics, ground penetrating radar and NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance).

In this second edition new chapters on RMT (radio magnetotelluric) and on the determination of groundwater flow in monitoring wells are included.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Groundwater Geophysics demonstrates the use of geophysics for the detection and delineation of groundwater resources. … This book covers a lot of material in geophysics and does a pretty good job of it. Besides serving as a reference book, I could see this book being used as a textbook for a groundwater geophysics course. … The index at the end of the book is extensive … . I think this book would be a good addition to the bookshelf of a geophysicist … ." (David C. Bartel, The Leading Edge, January, 2007)
