Hydrogeochemistry Fundamentals and Advances, Groundwater by Viatcheslav V. Tikhomirov

By Viatcheslav V. Tikhomirov

Water is the Earth’s most valuable resource.  till contemporary years, water was once frequently ignored as being overly plentiful or on hand, yet a lot has replaced everywhere in the world.  As weather switch, human encroachment on environmental components, and deforestation turn into higher hazards, the learn of groundwater has develop into extra vital than ever and is growing to be as some of the most very important parts of technological know-how for the way forward for existence on Earth.

This three-volume set is the main accomplished and updated therapy of hydrogeochemistry that's available.  the 1st quantity lays the basis of the composition, chemistry, and checking out of groundwater, whereas quantity covers useful purposes reminiscent of mass move and transport.  quantity 3, which completes the set, is a sophisticated examine of the environmental research of groundwater and its implications for the future.

This first quantity within the set is a crucial milestone in hydrogeochemistry, overlaying the basics of groundwater science.  It additionally is going extra into checking out equipment, functions of trying out, and analysis.  it's not in basic terms the introductory textual content for this groundbreaking and impressive new three-volume venture, however it can be a beneficial reference for the scientist, engineer, or student.  no matter if as a textbook or a reference paintings, this quantity is a must have for any library on hydrogeochemistry.

Example text

They believed in the existence of the primary source of all matter on Earth. This philosophical concept, later called naive monism, became commonly recognized by Classical Greek philosophers. According to this philosophy, the “primary substance” existed, from which emerged all other matter. Thales believed that such primary substance was water. A different viewpoint on the nature of matter was held by Leucippus of Abdera or Miletus (Vth century BC) and his student Democritus of Abdera (460–370 BC).

This classification was for a long time commonly used abroad and in our country. First systematic ground water and their composition study in Russia is associated with the names of agrologist Vassily Vasilyevich Dokuchayev (1846–1903) and his students. Early in the XXth century he created in Petrograd a chemical laboratory of Russia’s Ministry of Agriculture. In 1914 Pavel Vladimirovich Ototsky (1866–1943) noted a regular change in the properties and composition of ground waters in the Russian territory.

Applied hydrogeochemistry is oriented to the solution of specific economic issues. These issues include: a. Search and appraisal of ground water as an economic deposit (potable, mineral, industrial, thermal and other); b. Protection and monitoring of ground water quality, especially their commercial development areas; c. Engineering evaluation of the interaction between ground water and various technological materials in order to assure the reliability of engineering facilities and underground communications; d.
