Field Hydrogeology
1010402Field HydrogeologyWater is a natural resource unique to the planet Earth. Water is life to us and all living things. After discounting the volumes represented by oceans and polar ice, groundwater is the next most significant source. It is approximately 50 to 70 times more plentiful than surface water (Fetter 1994). Understanding the character, occurrence, and movement of groundwater in the subsurface and its interaction with surface water is the study of hydrogeology. Field hydrogeology encompasses the methods performed in the field to understand groundwater systems and their connection to surface water sources and sinks.
