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.
Hydrology Journal is a leading international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes articles with supporting disciplines such as geomorphology, geohydrology, geophysics etc. It describes worldwide progress in the area of hydrology and geology; also provides an accessible forum for researchers, scientists, engineers in developing countries.
OMICS Group is also running one of the leading journals in hydrogeology i.e.. Hydrology: Current Research, which provides a platform to the scientists/ researchers around the globe to share their views/theory worldwide. Scientists & the readers use this widely read international journal to keep up with recent scientific trends in the area of water cycle, subsurface hydrology and geology, geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, geobiology, tectonics, numerical modeling, economics, sociology, hydrosphere, groundwater modeling, agriculture, environment etc..
