The University of the Free State

Modreck Gomo is an Associated Professor in groundwater working at the Institute of Groundwater Studies, the University of the Free State in South Africa. 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 Ph.D. in Geohydrology (2011) from the University of the Free State in South Africa. He has experience in a wide range of groundwater science and consultancy projects. He has contributed to various capacity-building projects on groundwater and transboundary aquifers in the SADC region. He has consistently published theoretical and experimental work on a variety of groundwater aspects with the main purpose of improving groundwater site characterization techniques of aquifer pumping tests, assessing hydrogeochemical processes, and their influence on groundwater quality. Modreck Gomo is serving as an Editorial board member for Sustainable Water Resources Management (SWAM) and Discover Water journals. Prof. Gomo has been a consistent reviewer in more than 10 internationally peer-reviewed journals with a focus on groundwater science since 2012. He is a registered professional natural scientist in the field of water resources with the South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions (SACNASP).

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.
