"Groundwater Science" is a timely, current, and comprehensive presentation of groundwater hydrology that integrates chemistry, physics, geology and calculus. With the input of students and other hydrology instructors, the author has developed a text reference that will be appreciated by students and professors alike. It provides an accompanying Web site with sample data sets for problems, and links to groundwater sites and public domain software. It integrates up-to-date material on field methods and flow modeling methods. It covers recent contamination topics including non-aqueous-phase liquids (NAPLs), complex solute transport processes, and remediation. It presents clear explanations, two-color figures, case studies, and worked examples throughout. It includes solutions manual for all end-of-chapter problems is available to faculty who adopt the text.

"The writing and presentation is clear and economical. The figures have a crisp and uncluttered look to them. Fitts stresses concepts over formal development....a fine textbook."
-Roger Beckie, Univ. British Columbia, for VADOSE ZONE JOURNAL, 2003
"Groundwater Science would serve well as the text for an introductory groundwater course...The graphics are crisp and explanatory. Data sets needed to work some of the problems in the book are available as text files from the book's Web Site...I found these files to be complete and easy to understand. The references are up to date...concise, well-written, and well-illustrated..."
-Sean A. McKenna, Sanda National Labs, EOS TRANSACTIONS, July 2003
"Groundwater Science is presented in a clear, logical manner, with attractive, effective typeset, and crisp diagrams...I strongly endorse this book for those entering the world of groundwater science for the first time."
-David Sharpe, Geological Survey of Canada
Episodes, December 2002
"The writing is clear and accurate without being wordy... The figures, references, and indexing are also well done. The references include both classics and recent papers, with broad coverage...It's not easy to do so many topics well, but Fitts' book succeeds."
-Laura Toran, for GROUND WATER, 2003
"Fitts takes a decidedly lean and focused approach to the subject. The figures have a crisp and uncluttered look to them. The writing and presentation is clear and economical. Fitts stresses concepts over formal development, avoiding derivations and mathematics where possible. I found his approach to be very effective, and expect it would appeal to the learning style of most students who need to first establish a simple, concrete foundation, supported by their own intuition, before they can abstract concepts in mathematical expressions...Groundwater Science is a good text for an introductory course in groundwater."
- Roger Beckie, University of British Columbia, for VADOSE ZONE JOURNAL, November 2003
"This text should find a suitable market in ground water science, especially with those instructors who prefer more mathematical or engineering perspectives to the subject. Although the text stresses mathematical modeling and contaminant flow, the overall balance provided by the geological perspective from Chapter 4 makes it a suitable choice for any instructor needing a comprehensive, visually appealing, well organized, and well supported textbook on ground water."
- Robert A. Vargo, Department of Earth Science, California University, for the Journal of the American Water Resources Association
