This textbook integrates classic principles of flow through porous media with recently developed stochastic analyses to provide new insight on subsurface hydrology. Importantly, each of the authors has extensive experience in both academia and the world of applied groundwater hydrology. The book not only presents theories but also emphasizes their underlying assumptions, limitations, and the potential pitfalls that may occur as a result of blind application of the theories as 'cookie-cutter' solutions. The book has been developed for advanced-level courses on groundwater fluid flow, hydraulics, and hydrogeology, in either civil/environmental engineering or geoscience departments. It is also a valuable reference text for researchers and professionals in civil/environmental engineering, geology, soil science, environmental science, and petroleum and mining engineering.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"The text overall is well-organized, and the content is well-presented for a short, specialized textbook, with organized prose that makes liberal use of section headings and typesetting to highlight key concepts. Color line-drawings, plots, and a few pictures add to the appeal of the text as well, visually conveying difﬁcult concepts such as spatial correlation and cross-correlation ﬁelds. Each chapter is nicely summarized through a key list of take-home points, and ends with a short set of exercises that test conceptual and quantitative understanding … The content of the book assumes only a basic background in ﬂuid mechanics or hydrogeology, and thus can serve as a relatively self-contained reference on pumping-test models … Chapter 9, in particular, sets this book apart from classical pumping-test analyses through its presentation of the stochastic modeling approach and discussion of hydraulic tomography. The completeness of the background material will be appreciated by students in need of review …"

The authors are leading experts in the hydrogeology field. The book brings new concepts and ideas different from any other books before. Its good for both teaching and reference, a must have book.See all reviews

A complete and well written book with a deep and clear explanation of the new and classical stochastic approaches of groundwater hydrology.
