Groundwater Hydrology

Edited by Muhammad Salik Javaid

Abasyn University, Pakistan

The two fields of knowledge “geology” and “hydrology” always go hand in hand, often giving rise to the terms “geohydrology” and “hydrogeology.” The importance of the science of water, commonly called “hydrologic science,” is always complemented by the “science of the interior of the earth.” Whereas hydrology is concerned with the quality and quantity of underground water, its movement, extraction, and recharge, geology talks of the rock matrix and the structure in which this water is contained, stored, and moved around.In recent times, the knowledge of geohydrology or the hydrology of groundwater has gained an impetus many times its original scale; and with that, acquisition, expansion, research, advancement, and dissemination of this knowledge have become more significant. With so many dimensions of geohydrology available for exploration, research, and technological advancement, any work contributing to any dimension of geohydrology and groundwater will find its right place. This compilation of chapters is going to play a very important part in furthering the knowledge of geohydrology and may prove an interesting and useful read for various cross-sections of academia, researchers, engineers, hydrologists, and all categories of water consumers.
