The author of this book, Mr. C. P. Kumar, is a Scientist who works at the National Institute of Hydrology (A Government of India Society under Ministry of Water Resources), Roorkee -247667 (Uttarakhand), India. His research areas of interest are assessment of groundwater potential; saline water intrusion in coastal aquifers; numerical modelling of unsaturated flow, groundwater flow and contaminant transport, management of aquifer recharge; and impact of climate change on groundwater.

The Review of the Book

This book is intended to provide a comprehensive treatise on assessment and modelling of groundwater. It presents the related aspects on assessment of groundwater modelling, groundwater modelling software, modelling of unsaturated flow, modelling of sea water intrusion, and impact of climate change on groundwater resources. 

This book is expected to be quite useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students (water resources engineering), field engineers and researchers working in the area of assessment, development and management of groundwater resources.
