Overview

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

Groundwater is a critical resource and the PrinciPal source of drinking water for over 1.5 billion people. In 2001, the National Research Council cited as a "grand challenge" our need to understand the processes that control water movement in the subsurface. This volume faces that challenge in terms of data integration between complex, multi-scale hydrologie processes, and their links to other physical, chemical, and biological processes at multiple scales.

Subsurface Hydrology: Data Integration for Properties and Processes presents the current state of the science in four aspects:

  • Approaches to hydrologie data integration
  • Data integration for characterization of hydrologie properties
  • Data integration for understanding hydrologie processes
  • Meta-analysis of current interpretations

Scientists and researchers in the field, the laboratory, and the classroom will find this work an important resource in advancing our understanding of subsurface water movement.
