By Harry Vereecken, Andrew Binley, Giorgio Cassiani, André Revil, Konstantin Titov

This ebook makes a speciality of how hydrogeophysical equipment might be utilized to resolve difficulties dealing with environmental engineers, geophysicists, agronomists, hydrologists, soil scientists and hydrogeologists. We current functions of hydrogeophysical how you can the certainty of hydrological strategies and environmental difficulties facing the stream of water and the shipping of solutes and contaminants. the vast majority of the booklet is prepared as a chain of process-driven chapters, each one authored by means of top specialists. components coated contain: infiltration and solute shipping strategies, biogeochemical functioning of soil-water platforms, coastal groundwater interactions, chilly sector hydrology, engineered obstacles and landfill tactics. additionally, the e-book deals perception into the advance of recent info fusion methodologies, of worth to many hydrogeophysical investigations, and offers an account how the speedily constructing self-potential approach may give invaluable information regarding water fluxes and hydrochemical states in the subsurface.

However, careful survey design and surveying, together with a good conceptual understanding of the problem, of the petrophysical relationships, and the dominant processes are probably the most important factors in successful hydrogeophysical parameter estimation efforts. Obviously, even the most sophisticated approach cannot give a detailed estimate based on very noisy data, but it can provide reasonable error bounds. As hydrogeophysics evolves we must put more emphasis on minimizing, estimating, and parameterization of the errors in our measurements in order to improve the estimations and their uncertainty bounds.

We define direct mapping as a transformation of a geophysical model into a hydrogeological model, where hydrogeological data are only used to develop a petrophysical relationship or provide a qualitative understanding of the relationship between the geophysical and hydrogeological property of interest. 3. Integration methods refer to cases where the geophysical inversion is performed independently of hydrogeological data, and vice versa. The task is to interpolate available data or inverse models given their uncertainties, petrophysical relationships, and a priori information.
