Applied Hydrogeophysics provides students and new researchers to the field a comprehensive set of process-based studies that demonstrate the value (and limitations) of using geophysical methods for improved hydrological characterisation and management of the subsurface environment. Researchers already active in the field will find the case studies a very useful source of reference.
Challenges in Urban Groundwater is premised on a growing recognition that most urban groundwater problems are not uniquely associated with any particular region or hydrogeological environment, and much can be learned by understanding the successes and failures of others. It showcases the best urban groundwater papers presented at the International Geological Congress held in Florence, Italy in 2004, and is supplemented by contributions solicited from other world experts active in urban groundwater research. Topics covered range from the urban water balance and rising groundwater levels to groundwater contamination and the role of aquifer modelling.
