Modeling managed aquifer recharge processes in a highly heterogeneous, semi-confined aquifer system

Widespread groundwater overdraft in alluvial aquifer systems like the Central Valley (CV) in California, USA, has increased interest in managed aquifer recharge (MAR). Like most clastic sedimentary basins, recharge to the productive semi-confined …

Simulation of groundwater flow paths under managed abstraction and recharge in an analogous sand-tank phreatic aquifer

Understanding the impacts of managed abstraction and recharge, i.e. artificial regulation of groundwater, on flow dynamics contributes to water resources planning and effective management of river basins. Based on the hydrogeological conditions of …

The 3D Water Atlas: a tool to facilitate and communicate new understanding of groundwater systems

Effective management of groundwater resources requires an understanding of the complexity of groundwater systems by the experts, and a certain level of understanding and trust in management by the community. Groundwater data sharing and …

Evidence for natural attenuation of 1,4-dioxane in a glacial aquifer system

Although 1,4-dioxane is generally thought to be recalcitrant, recent studies suggest it may degrade in the subsurface under ideal conditions. A fuller understanding of natural attenuation processes affecting 1,4-dioxane is therefore needed to …

Identification of groundwater contamination sources using a statistical algorithm based on an improved Kalman filter and simulation optimization

Identification of groundwater contamination sources, as a solution to an inverse problem, is mainly based on simulation optimization methods. However, the establishment and solution of an optimization model are extremely complicated for the …

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.

Special issues, recent topical collections, Editors’ Choice articles and more information can be accessed on this Springer website. Past topical collections are listed on the IAH website at:
