Summary:The authors describe project performance, methods for field study of rocks, soils, and outcrops and how to evaluate impacts of air pollution and water resources systems. Furthermore, they develop guidelines for graphic and text presentation of results of studies and describe superficial rock characteristics and subsurface geological mapping techniques. The text covers hydrogeologic methods, groundwater monitoring systems, contamination and waste management and discusses groundwater flow in fractured and granular aquifers, including a special reference to karstic aquifers. In addition to this, international waste management rules and regulations are listed. A glossary is provided of geological and hydrogeological terms, as well as a standard terminology for soils, rocks, and contained fluids
