Managing groundwater supplies subject to drought: perspectives on current status and future priorities from England (UK)

Effective management of groundwater resources during drought is essential. How is groundwater currently managed during droughts, and in the face of environmental change, what should be the future priorities? Four themes are explored, from the …

Determination of fracture apertures via calibration of three-dimensional discrete-fracture-network models: application to Pahute Mesa, Nevada National Security Site, USA

The Pahute Mesa Corrective Action Unit on the Nevada National Security Site (USA) contains several fractured aquifers that can potentially provide high-permeability pathways for migration of radionuclides away from underground nuclear testing …

Geochemical insights into groundwater movement in alpine karst, Bear River Range, Utah, USA

Alpine karst aquifers control the availability and longevity of some water resources, but are not well understood. A conceptual model of the alpine karst aquifer system in the Bear River Range of northern Utah (USA) has been developed by …

CC-PESTO: a novel GIS-based method for assessing the vulnerability of karst groundwater resources to the effects of climate change

The new GIS-based CC-PESTO method is shown to successfully assess and map the vulnerability/resilience of karst aquifers to effects of climate change. Karst aquifers were chosen due to their importance at the global level and widespread …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Hydrogeology Journal was founded in 1992 to foster understanding of hydrogeology; to describe worldwide progress in hydrogeology; and to provide an accessible forum for scientists, researchers, engineers, and practitioners in developing and industrialized countries. Since then, the journal has earned a large worldwide readership.

Its peer-reviewed research articles integrate subsurface hydrology and geology with supporting disciplines, such as: geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, geobiology, surface-water hydrology, tectonics, numerical modeling, economics, and sociology. Articles explore theoretical and applied aspects of hydrogeologic science, including studies ranging from local areas and short time periods to global problems and geologic time; innovative instrumentation; water-resource and mineral-resource evaluations; and overviews of hydrogeologic systems of interest in various regions.
