The aim of this paper is to facilitate the planning and design of land drainage systems for sound land and water management for engineers and other professionals. It considers the integration of technical, socio-economic and environmental factors and the need for system users' participation in the planning, design, operation and maintenance processes. The text provides guidelines for the appropriate identification of drainage problems, for the planning and design of field drainage systems (surface and subsurface) and the main drainage and disposal systems. The annexes provide more detailed information with technical background, appropriate equations, some cross-references for finding appropriate methodologies, and computer programs for calculation of extreme values, of permeability and some land drainage system parameters. --Publisher's description.

This new edition adds several new chapters and is thoroughly updated to include data on new topics such as hydraulic fracturing, CO2 sequestration, sustainable groundwater management, and more. Providing a complete treatment of the theory and practice of groundwater engineering, this new handbook also presents a current and detailed review of how to model the flow of water and the transport of contaminants both in the unsaturated and saturated zones, covers the protection of groundwater, and the remediation of contaminated groundwater.

The Design, Performance, and Analysis of Slug Tests

The slug test is currently the most common method for the in situ estimation of hydraulic conductivity at sites of suspected groundwater contamination. However, inappropriate procedures in one or more phases of a slug test can introduce considerable error into the resulting parameter estimates. This book remedies this problem by answering virtually every question regarding the design, performance, and analysis of slug tests. This is the first book to provide detailed information on the practical aspects of the methodology of slug tests. All major analysis methods are described in The Design, Performance, and Analysis of Slug Tests. Each analysis method is outlined in a step-by-step manner and illustrated with a field example. The major practical issues related to the field application of each technique are also discussed. This book will help the reader get more reliable parameter estimates from slug tests and increase the utility of slug test data.

Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks

Hydrogeology of Crystalline Rocks deals with deep groundwater in the granite and gneiss basement of the continents. It has become evident during the past years that highly mineralized water is present in an interconnected fracture network of the basement. Thus, the upper part of the crust of the continents can be viewed as an aquifer and investigated with tools common in hydrogeology. This book presents accounts on water-conducting features of crystalline rocks and summarizes the hydraulic properties of the basement. The volume includes reviews, new data and research on the often remarkable chemical composition of deep groundwater. Microbial processes in the deep basement aquifer are probably more important than previously thought. Two contributions focus on this recent extension of research of the biosphere to greater depth in the Earth. This book represents the first multidisciplinary and integrated account of deep groundwater hydrology in crystalline basement. It is of interest to hydrologists and hydrogeologists working with water in crystalline rocks, but also to solid earth geophysicists, geochemists and petrologists with an interest in fluids in the crust. Scientists involved in nuclear waste disposal programs and geothermal energy development will find a wealth of stimulating ideas in this volume.

This publication contains guidelines to sustain irrigated agriculture and protect water resources from the negative impacts of agricultural drainage water disposal. Using case studies from Central Asia, Egypt, India, Pakistan and the US, this study highlights four broad groups of drainage water management options and provides information to enable assessment of their impact and contribution towards development goals and to facilitate the preparation of drainage water management plans and designs. The options are: water conservation, drainage water re-use, drainage water disposal and drainage water treatment. The full texts of the case studies can be found on the attached CD-ROM.

The third edition of Groundwater, AWWA Manual M21, is newly designed and fully updated to give operators, engineers, and other water supply professionals a comprehensive understanding of groundwater. The manual provides a basic understanding of groundwater characteristics - its movement, quality, and geology - and the impact these characteristics have on the design, construction, and maintenance of groundwater-well systems for water supply. Additionally, this manual will help water supply professionals answer many of the questions they have about complex aquifer systems, quality testing, pumps and pumping systems, contamination, and treatment.

Like its predecessors, this third revised edition of the Agricultural Compendium is packed with a wealth of statistical and general information about almost every aspect of agriculture in the tropics and subtropics. "Anyone in tropical rural development, whether in a technical capacity or as an economist/planner making use of technical results, would both save themselves time and increase their understanding and efficiency through possession of this compendium. It is not only a reference volume but potentially a major contribution to mutual understanding and therefore communication between different disciplines." commented Soil Survey and Land Evaluation after the publication of an earlier edition. Numerous sections (e.g. Chapter 7, Part B - Fisheries) and even complete chapters (e.g. Chapter 3, Geodosy; Chapter 10, Sociology) have been rewritten for the present edition. A number of new sections have also been added (e.g. in Chapter 3, a section on remote sensing techniques). Furthermore, in view of the now common use of scientific pocket calculators and personal computers, a number of graphs have been replaced by the original formulae.
