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:

  • examines the role of models in regulation, litigation, and policy development;
  • explains ground water processes and describes specific applications for models;
  • presents emerging technologies; and
  • offers specific recommendations for better use of ground water science in policy formation.
