This book deals with the concept of moments, and how they find application in subsurface hydrologic problems-particularly those dealing with solute transport. Both temporal and spatial moments are dealt with in some detail for a wide variety of problems. Several examples using experimental data, both from laboratory columns and field experiments, are provided to give the readers a clear idea about the scope of this method.
From the reviews: "This book studies specific aspects of moment analysis for PDE governing the contaminant transport analysis; it contains 12 chapters. ... A large number of experimental data
