||GROUNDWATER MODELLING AND MANAGEMENT
Author: Dr. N.C. Ghosh, Dr. K.D. Sharma
Description: Modelling and Management are two terminologies where former is one of the tools for the latter. Modelling deals with transformation of science into computational framework for assessment of resource potential and prediction of future scenario, while Management is the use of the tools for making decisions. Groundwater experts in India acquired substantial knowledge on modelling and management of complex groundwater systems. The idea, therefore, emerged - why not endeavour to share their experiences in a book. This book consists of twenty-five independent chapters along with glossary of 223 groundwater and modelling terminologies, and tables giving values of frequently used parameters and characteristics - a rare match, if compared with other books. The chapters have been designed to cover various aspects of groundwater, which include: issues, physical processes, parameter estimation, modelling concept and approach, pollution assessment and transport modelling, freshwater and salt-water interface modelling, case studies, etc. The contribution of articles is arranged into following five Sections: (a) issues, basics, and data requirement & processing; (b) groundwater modelling and management in porous aquifers; (c) hydrogeology of fractured rocks and fractured flow modelling; (d) groundwater pollution and contaminant transport modelling, and (e) freshwater-saltwater interaction in coastal aquifers and management. One of the main emphases of the book is the hard rocks hydrogeology and modeling - a challenging area for future research. It is anticipated that this book will be one of its kind to provide all scientific and technical details about groundwater and its movement in aquifer medium. The book is more like a reference book and will be useful for students, teachers, researchers, and practicing hydrologists.
