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 is an Open Access OMICS Group Journal which is named as Journal of Hydrology: Current Research, which has several related journals in OMICS as well as out of OMICS, the list of OMICS related journals are as follows: Oceanography, Journal of Aquaculture and Research development, Journal of fisheries, Journal of Marine Science etc
Hydrogeology journalâs aims to publish recent trends and developments in the area of hydrology making it freely accessible to one and all without any restrictions.
It provides information in various disciplines such as water cycle, subsurface hydrology and geology, geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, geobiology, tectonics, numerical modeling, economics, sociology, hydrosphere, groundwater modeling, agriculture, environment etc.
