The University of the Free State

Modreck Gomo is a researcher in groundwater with experience in a wide range of groundwater science and consultancy projects. His first degree was a BSc Honours in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Zimbabwe, followed by a BSc Honours in Geohydrology (2008), an MSc in Geohydrology (2009), and a PhD in Geohydrology (2011) from the University of the Free in South Africa. He has published over 20 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals. His main research interests include: Investigation of the characteristics of borehole fluid electrical conductivity (FEC) profiles in different aquifer systems; Application of numerical modelling to assess and evaluate the application of analytical methods for analyzing aquifer pumping test data; Investigation of hydrogeochemical processes and groundwater quality assessments; and Procedures for collecting representative groundwater samples in fractured-rock aquifers. Dr Gomo is a consistent reviewer in more than 10 internationally peer-reviewed journals with a focus on groundwater science since 2012. He is also now involved in a number of groundwater projects in the Southern African Development Community region related to transboundary groundwater and capacity building on groundwater collection. He is a registered professional natural scientist in the field of water resources with the South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions (SACNASP) and also a member of the Groundwater Division, South Africa.

This book covers aspects of groundwater resource characterisation and management. The inherent heterogeneous and isotropic nature of aquifers coupled with the unpredictable effects of climate change calls for continuous improvement and understanding of hydrogeology site characterisation techniques in theory and application to better understand and manage groundwater. We believe that this book will be useful for various professionals involved in groundwater-related work to improve the theoretical and practical understanding of hydrogeology site characterisation techniques and groundwater resource management skills.
