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.
OMICS Group runs more than 700+ peer-reviewed journals. Hydrogeology open access journal from OMICS Group, named as the Hydrogeology: Current Research, provides free information to the researchers & the readers in the sciences of water.
Hydrogeology Open Access journal aims to publish recent trends and developments in the sciences of earth making it freely accessible to one and all without any restrictions, 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..
The primary mission of the Hydrogeology open access journal is to provide a wider platform for publishing current events and trends in the sciences of water.
