Groundwater in the Environment

An Introduction

€ 80.95


  • Provides a thorough introduction to all aspects of groundwater systems and their management.

  • Uses straightforward language to explain the origins, nature and behaviour of subsurface water.

  • Draws on case studies and cutting edge research from around the world.

  • Assumes little mathematical experience.
