    Reviews and evaluates field methods used to study ground-water contamination. 30 peer-reviewed papers examine:

    • ground-water sampling and sampling in unsaturated soils

    • well-drilling (construction and monitoring)

    • geophysical exploration

    • quality assurance

    • soil permeability

    • and nonpoint source investigations.

    Some case histories are included: for hydrologic engineer, hydrogeologists, soil scientists, and geotechnical engineers.
