Choice Review

Hudak (Univ. of North Texas) seeks to introduce key concepts in hydrogeology in a concise yet informative manner. However, his treatment is perhaps too concise and does not allow the development of some important concepts. Chapters include hydrologic cycle, aquifers, monitoring wells, groundwater flow, well hydraulics and aquifer tests, groundwater quality, and solute transport, managing groundwater pollution, and careers in hydrogeology. There is a seven-page glossary and a 43-citation reference list. Examples are given throughout, and there are numerous simple computer-drawn line figures. With a price near $70 it is difficult to recommend this short book except on the basis of its brevity. Most readers would be better served by more comprehensive books such as C.W. Fetter's Applied Hydrogeology (3rd ed., 1994), at 690 pages and 720 references, or R. Allan Freeze and John A. Cherry's Groundwater (CH, Feb'80). General readers; lower-division undergraduates. I. D. Sasowsky; University of Akron
