State-of-the-art theory and practice of groundwater contamination, mitigation, and remediation Ground Water Contamination, Second Edition is a thorough update to the leading book on groundwater contamination and remediation for scientists and engineers. Written from both a theoretical and practical viewpoint, this edition focuses on the critical new challenges facing professionals seeking to prevent, mitigate, or remediate groundwater problems -- especially today's highly-complex transport problems. Detailed new coverage includes a full chapter on sorption, biodegradation, and natural attenuation processes; extensive new coverage of risk assessment; and the results of major field studies on several military and Superfund sites. The book reflects increased concern about source zone areas with non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs), residual oils, vapors in the unsaturated zone, gasoline spills which float on the water table, and chlorinated solvent spills which sink to the bottom of aquifers. Coverage includes: bull; bull; Detailed coverage of analytical and numerical methods bull; Extensive case studies and field research from military and Superfund sites bull; Waste site characterization and remedial design bull; Emerging remediation methods, including surfactant and co-solvent soil flushing The new edition includes access to programs and worksheets for Microsoft Excel via the World Wide Web, and contains an extensive set of revised homework problems and solutions for topics such as groundwater flow, well mechanics, and contamination transport. Ground Water Contamination, Second Edition is an essential resource for all hydrogeologists, civil and environmental consulting engineers, and other professionals concerned with groundwater contamination and remediation. It is ideally designed for use in the college classroom.
