Groundwater Contamination: Optimal Capture and Containment – This book summarizes a set of tools and techniques that can be used to design efficient and cost-effective capture and containment systems for groundwater remedial action operation. Gorelick, S. R.A. Freeze, D. Donahue, and J.F. Keely, Lewis Publishers, 1989
Optimal Management of Flow in Groundwater Systems – This book combines optimization methods with numerical models for the management of groundwater flow. The resulting management model provides a quantitative tool for optimizing the groundwater system within the context of the specified objective function and constraints. Ahlfeld, D.P and A.E.
