Dutch IAH member Bram Bot informed us about a new and interesting publication (in Dutch), the «Grondwaterzakboekje». The «Grondwaterzakboekje» is a pocket companion for groundwater hydrologists. It is not a textbook, but a concise, 250-page compendium packed with useful equations, typical parameter values, checklists, rules of thumb, overviews, tables, graphs, examples and illustrations.

GrondwaterzakboekjeThe «Grondwaterzakboekje» comprises 21 chapters, covers every aspect of groundwater hydrology and includes extensive appendices. Practising hydrologists throughout the Netherlands would like to have this little book within reach at all times.

Some aspects are described in terms of practices specific to the Netherlands and the language will obviously be an obstacle to users who are not of Dutch or Flemish origin.

We have read the book and would like to recommend it to all Dutch experts working with groundwater – this is a key publication that should be in every Dutch water library!
