This book contains the results and findings of the advanced research carried out in a pilot area with a thorough investigation of the structure and functioning of an aquifer in a granitic formation. It characterizes the hard rock aquifer system and examines its properties and behavior as well as systematically details the geophysical, geological and remote sensing applications to conceptualize such an aquifer system.
Equipped with latest techniques applied to hard rock aquifer systems
Most of the modern techniques such as Geostatistics and Aquifer Modeling in one place
Most of the work included in the book as an example stems from a single aquifer system
Additional examples from a variety of the aquifers from many places of the world included
The theoretical developments are supported by case studies to explain the research work and ensure the applicability
