Editorial Reviews

Review

"It can be readily understood by all newcomers to numerical methods requiring only basic mathematical techniques....Short FORTRAN-computer programs for almost every problem...is a great advantage of the book....This book is as good as a complete and very detailed university course."
--JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICS
"Very timely....The authors have succeeded in avoiding complex formulated expressions without losing mathematical consistency....This introductory textbook...will be very useful in the development of college hydrogeology courses."
--GROUNDWATER MODELING NEWSLETTER
"A clear, concise little volume on a subject that has needed such a treatment. It provides the best introduction to date on the most important tool of groundwater hydrology, the computer model...."
--CHOICE
"This well-written, soft-bound book is a very good treatment of numerical methods applied to modeling ground water flow....The book will also be valuable as a reference for practitioners working in the area of ground water flow. I personally would buy the book for my own library."
--WATER RESOURCES BULLETIN

Format: Paperback
I found this text very valuable in explaining the differences between these two methods and how each handles the dependent variable (head) and its first derivative (flow). The text also discusses Laplaces equation, iterative methods including Gauss-Seidel/SOR. Chapters are dedicated to finite difference and finite element methods under steady-state and transient conditions. It also demonstrates how each element is handled separately using finite element method and then the equations are assembled into a conductance matrix.
This text is a very good complement to other modeling texts. However, if you want to learn how to set up your hydrogeologic conceptual model, what data is needed to develop a good model, how to choose your numerical model, verify, calibrate your model, interpret results and perform a post audit, this is not that text. For the purpose of model setup etc. I would recommend Applied Groundwater Modeling.

I've used this book in two of my groundwater modeling classes. Despite the fact that it is a little outdated, it has the clearest explaination I've come across of the mathematics behind groundwater modeling. In addition, it contains very good example problems.

Awesome literature for groundwater modeling. Any serious minded water resources engineer should get this book. I definitely would recommend this as a vital tool for ground water design engineers.

I found this book somewhat outdated. Even though it was well-written if was of little value. There are several other books of better quality.
