||GROUNDWATER: Resources Evaluation, Augmentation, Restoration, Modeling and Management 2nd Edition
Author: Dr. M. Thangarajan
Description: This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. The first Edition of the book on Groundwater was published in 2007 and it was well received internationally. There was a need for a second edition after 6 years because it was now important to incorporate new chapters on emerging topics such as the characterization of aquifer parameters and flow regime in the Basaltic terrain as well the estimation of evapotranspiration by making use of Complementary relationships rather than the conventional method and estimation of recharge through isotope techniques. These two parameters dealt in the book are most important for the evaluation of the aquifer potential. Achapter has been added on the Impact of Climate change in groundwater and another on the mobility and mitigation aspect of Fluoride and Arsenic in groundwater. Two new chapters have been introduced one on Numerical simulation of weathered coupled fractured aquifer in a hard rock region and another on Modeling of Nuclide migration due to nuclear waste disposal in groundwater.
