Groundwater mechanics is the study of fluid flow in porous media. Focusing on applications and case studies, this book explains the basic principles of groundwater flow using mathematical expressions to describe a wide range of different aquifer configurations. Emphasis is placed throughout on the importance of developing simplified models that can be solved analytically to provide insight into complex groundwater flow scenarios and to allow better interpretation of the full numerical solution. Focusing first on identifying the important features of a problem, the book explains how to translate practical questions into mathematical form and discusses the interpretation of the results. Illustrated with numerous real-world examples and graphical results, this is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate Earth science, geological engineering, and environmental engineering courses, as well as a useful reference for researchers and professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Analytical solutions to groundwater flow problems are an essential tool in the hydrogeology toolkit. Otto D. L. Strack has produced a must-have reference, drawing together his considerable lifelong contributions to the application of mathematics in hydrogeology. An extremely helpful text from an authority on the topic.' Adrian Werner, Flinders University, Adelaide
'Written with clarity and purpose, Strack presents a wealth of mathematical solutions and techniques that offer valuable insight into the fundamentals of groundwater flow. This book is indispensable for all who practice quantitative groundwater hydrology.' Henk Haitjema, Indiana University and Editor-in-Chief of Groundwater
'Strack is a recognized expert in the application of analytical techniques to the solution of groundwater flow problems. His classic text Groundwater Mechanics (1989) was a unique collection of these techniques which, while ground-breaking and authoritative, was in some places quite a challenging read. Analytical Groundwater Mechanics is a much clearer distillation of these methods and is full of worked examples and illustrative problem sets. It is a treasure trove of (often clever) analytical solution approaches to groundwater flow problems. I recommend this text for anyone interested in the mathematical modelling of groundwater flow.' James R. Craig, University of Waterloo, Ontario
