    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. Groundwater contamination is extremely difficult, and sometimes impossible, to clean up. Groundwater contaminants come from two categories of sources: point sources and distributed, or non-point sources. Landfills, leaking gasoline storage tanks, leaking septic tanks, and accidental spills are examples of point sources. Infiltration from farm.

Intended for hydrogeologists, engineers, and college students in those or related fields, this updated edition discusses the theory and practice of ground water contamination modeling and remediation.

New coverage includes a full chapter on sorption, biodegradation, and natural attenuation processes. contamination entering moving groundwater, an area of contaminated groundwater, called a.

plume, can form (Diagram 3). A combination of moving groundwater and a continuous source of contamination can, therefore, pollute very large volumes and areas of groundwater. Some plumes at Superfund sites are several miles long.

A PDF is a digital representation of the print book, so while it can be loaded into most e-reader programs, it doesn't allow for resizable text or advanced, interactive functionality.
