This book presents a rigorous mathematical development of soil water and contaminant flow in variably saturated and saturated soils. Analytical and numerical methods are balanced: computer programs, among them MathCad and Fortran, are presented, and more than 150 practice and discussionquestions are included. Students are thus exposed not only to theory but also to an array of solutions techniques. Those using the book as a reference will appreciate the careful development of basic flow equations, the inclusion of solutions and methodology currently available only in journals andproceedings volumes, and the examples and calculations directly applicable to their own work.
Arthur W. Warrick is at University of Arizona.

Editorial Reviews

"I consider Soil Water Dynamics to occupy a unique station among its contemporaries. Many topics necessarily overlap in soil physics texts...but the focus of Warrick's book is less general and hence is able to provide greater detail. Many professionals and advanced students in soil physics,engineering, and hydrology will welcome Dr. Warrick's new book as a reference, an introduction in some cases, to advanced quantatative methods in flow and transport."--Jon M.
