The discovery of toxic pollution at Love Canal brought ground water contamination to the forefront of public attention. Since then, ground water science and modeling have become increasingly important in evaluating contamination, setting regulations, and resolving liability issues in court.
A clearly written explanation of ground water processes and modeling, Ground Water Models focuses on the practical aspects of model application. It:
