Hydrogeology is the branch of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of groundwater within the soil and rocks of the Earth's crust. Science of hydrogeology deals with a specific part of the hydrologic cycle mainly the part that is underground. Hydrogeology is the branch of the earth sciences dealing with the water flow through aquifers and other shallow porous media. The very shallow flow of water in the subsurface is pertinent to the fields of soil science, agriculture and civil engineering, as well as to hydrogeology. The general flow of fluids in deeper formations is also a concern of geologists, geophysicists and petroleum geologists. Groundwater is a slow-moving, viscous fluid; many of the empirically derived laws of groundwater flow can be alternately derived in fluid mechanics from the special case of Stokes flow.
Hydrogeology journal from OMICS Group, named as the Hydrogeology: Current Research, publishes peer-reviewed open access articles which are related to the field of water cycle, subsurface hydrology and geology, geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, geobiology, tectonics, numerical modeling, economics, sociology, hydrosphere, groundwater modeling, agriculture, environment etc..
OMICS Group International runs over 700+ peer-reviewed journals, Hydrology: Current Research is also one of them.
Hydrogeology open access journal aims to publish recent trends and developments in the sciences of water making it freely accessible to one and all without any restrictions.
Hydrogeology articles open access provides a greater chance of visibility to the readers, which in turn leads to maximum number of article citations.
