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 new findings are published in OMICS Group open access journal named as Hydrogeology: Current Research, the journal publishes recent trends and developments 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..
New findings in Hydrogeology are described in an open access journal to facilitate the exchange of information between researchers around the globe.
It is freely accessible to one and all without any restrictions.
Hydrogeology new findings which are published in the journal provides an open source of information to the readers & scholars, which use this widely read articles to keep up with recent research in the area of hydrology and geology.
