This book focuses on the the application of hydrogeophysical methods to the understanding of hydrological processes and environmental problems dealing with the flow of water and the transport of solutes and contaminants. Taking a process-driven approach, the book offers a series of process-driven chapters, each authored by leading experts. Areas covered include: infiltration and solute transport processes, biogeochemical functioning of soil-water systems, coastal groundwater interactions, cold region hydrology, engineered barriers and landfill processes.
An emphasis on the practical value of hydrogeophysics in a wide range of problems
Application to new areas, such as biogeochemical functioning
A distinct 'engineering' type feel for some problem based studies, such as engineered barriers and landfill processes
