Introduction to Ground Water. -- Index. Hydrologic Processes at the Earth's Surface. Basic Principles of Ground-Water Flow. Introduction to Ground Water provides the reader with the fundamental principles of the hydraulic cycle. Also complete with illustrations and real-life case studies, this text takes a comprehensive and realistic approach to the subject of hydrology. It also contains strong interactive computer-based programs for solving and simulating hydraulics groundwater processes.
