Editorial Reviews


"Applied Groundwater Modeling is a good reference for the practitioner performing groundwater modeling. The index is helpful for locating topics of interest, and the literature review and references cited are comprehensive....In summary [this book] partially fills a void that has existed in the field of groundwater modeling."
"This is an excellent opportunity for those who, having the necessary skills, are prepared to take seriously the concept that ground water dynamics can be effectively both represented and resolved in numerical terms."
"The book presents a useful text that guides the engineer and practitioner through all major stages in the complex adventure of modeling groundwater flow and transport mechanisms in actual field settings. An extensive selection of most recent references helps with understanding of current development in subsurface modeling, while many figures from actual case-study applications bring modeling experience closer to the reader."
"I believe Applied Groundwater Modeling is a major contribution to the field of groundwater hydrology. It is the type of book that will raise the level of expertise of anyone who reads it."
"A very significant contribution that addresses a longtime need among hydrologists and others using groundwater models. It will be kept on the work table and not on the bookshelf. It will establish a standard of quality with which future modeling studies will be preformed and reviewed."
"Applied Groundwater Modeling will be a commonly used reference for students, academicians, consultants, and regulators. After years of trying to decipher and apply the cryptic methods and arcane notations used by numerical modelers of groundwater flow systems, these seeming mysteries are revealed in an easily understood manner. The terminology, methodologies, and case studies are presented with the eye of a research scientist, the nose of an academic, and the touch of an experienced practitioner. As a result, the reader will be rewarded with the fundamental knowledge needed to use these valuable tools."

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Miljř Ressourcer DTU on November 27, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is probably the best ever written on the subject. In other words, the content is really 1st class.
However, the print quality is so poor that I wonder how Anderson and Woessner or their 'managers' did ever even think about letting Elsevier do the print. It looks like something that come out of a fax machine. The figures are difficult to read. Grey-scales in figures have turned into slightly different tones of just black, and sometimes you need the Academic Press print of 1992 to fully understand the figures. The layout of tables that run over two or more pages have been altered to become inlogic compared to the Academic Press print version. Also the letters of the bulk text lacks reader friendliness. My advise is to look for the book printed by academic press and not by Elsevier.

This text was used in my groundwater modeling class and was useful and instructive specifically for GMS and MODFLOW. The binding split after normal use during the quarter to almost every student enrolled in the course.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Simon Woodward on April 15, 2009
Format: Hardcover
What I like about this book is the breadth it provides on the art and philosophy of groundwater modelling. It is really about the practice of applying existing codes, there is very little detail about the theory behind the codes. There are numerous examples mostly using FDM (MODFLOW, PLASM) and occasionally FEM codes (AQUIFEM-1), and lots of discussion on things to keep in mind. There are whole chapters on (1) boundary conditions (2) transient models and (3) conceptual models which I thought was great. There is a useful discussion on water balance too. There is very little however on unsaturated flow or solute transport, both of which get only a few pages in the last chapter.
