A Practical Manual on Groundwater Modelling

This Practical Manual on Groundwater Modelling presents the basic theories of groundwater flow and contaminant transport as applied to the construction of numerical models. It covers the following areas:

• Basic principles of finite element methods as applied to groundwater problems (flow and transport)

• General procedures for constructing models

• Practical tracking methods for the solution of transport problems

• Illustrative examples and case studies

The manual is designed for practising hydrologists, environmental engineers and scientists who require a primer in groundwater modelling. It is also suitable for graduate students of groundwater hydrology.
