Applications in Hydrogeology for Geoscientists presents the most recent scientific developments in the field that are accessible yet rigorous enough for industry professionals and academic researchers alike.
A multi-contributed reference that features the knowledge and experience of the field's experts, the book's chapters span the full scope of hydrogeology, introducing new approaches and progress in conceptualization, simulation of groundwater flow and transport, and progressive hydro-geophysical methods. Each chapter includes examples of recent developments in hydrogeology, groundwater, and hydrology that are underscored with perspectives regarding the challenges that are facing industry professionals, researchers, and academia.
Several sub-themes-including theoretical advances in conceptualization and modeling of hydro-geologic challenges-connect the chapters and weave the topics together holistically. Advances in research are aided by insights arising from observations from both field and laboratory work.
- Introduces new approaches and progress in hydrogeology, including conceptualization, simulated groundwater flow and transport, and cutting edge hydro-geophysical methods
- Features more than 100 figures, diagrams, and illustrations to highlight major themes and aid in the retention of key concepts
- Presents a holistic approach to advances in hydrogeology, from the most recent developments in reservoirs and hydraulics to analytic modeling of transient multi-layer flow and aquifer flow theory
- Integrates real life data, examples and processes, making the content practical and immediately implementable
Dr. Zekai Sen obtained his B. Sc. and M. Sc Degrees from the Technical University of Istanbul, Civil Engineering Faculty, in 1972. His post-graduate studies were carried out at the University of London, Imperial College of Science and Technology. He was granted a Diploma of Imperial College (DIC) in 1972, M. Sc. in Engineering Hydrology in 1973 and his Ph. D. in stochastic hydrology in 1974. He worked in different countries such as England, Norway, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. He worked in different universities such as the King Abdulaziz University, Faculty of Earth Sciences, Hydrogeology Department; Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Astronautics and Aeronautics, Meteorology Department. His main interests are hydrology, water resources, hydrogeology, atmospheric sciences, hydrometeorology, hydraulics, science philosophy and history. He has published about 230 SCI scientific papers in different international top journals and has seven book publications, including the forthcoming Practical and Applied Hydrogeology (2014).
