About this book


Geological models used in predictive hydrogeological modeling are not exact replicas of the objects they represent: many details related to structures and properties of the objects remain unknown. Those details may considerably affect simulation results. A provable evaluation of the uncertainty of hydrogeological and solute transport simulations are almost impossible. In this book, the author describes how to obtain the best-possible results in simulations, based on the available data and predefined criteria that are turned into transforming mechanisms. The latter are mathematical expressions for evaluating model parameters supporting effective simulations. Examples of the mechanisms as well as methods of their evaluation are provided in this book. It is also shown how these mechanisms can be used for the interpretation of hydrogeological data. The first edition of this book was published in the series SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences.

From the reviews of the second edition:

“An excellent introduction to hydrogeological models and the variety of methods to treat uncertainty surrounding models. … This book provides an alternative way of treating model uncertainties, which, in my opinion, is a great contribution to the hydrogeological community. … The active voice is used throughout the book; reading is like the author telling stories, making the book intelligible and entertaining. … I highly recommend this excellent book to anyone who has an interest in hydrogeology and numerical modeling.” (Peiyue Li, Environmental Processes, April, 2014)
