Hydrogeology

How do groundwater resources underpin the UN Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030?

Since earliest times humankind has met much of its needs for good quality water from subterranean sources. During the 20th century there was an enormous boom in waterwell construction for urban water-supply, agricultural irrigation and industrial processing – facilitated by advances in well drilling, pump technology and geological knowledge – and groundwater became a key resource supporting human ...

Verde employs two of the five fastest-growing ‘green’ jobs

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history and, in recent decades, scientists have concluded that the planet is currently going through an era of warming.  There is near-consensus that the latest rise in average temperatures, along with a shift in weather patterns, is in at least part attributable to human activity that has pushed an excess of carbon into the atmosphere. A global drive ...

Hydrology and Hydrogeology explained

Hydrologists and hydrogeologists are water scientists who study the properties of freshwater and its distribution on the continents. Together, hydrology and hydrogeology provide information on how to manage and protect freshwater, humans most essential natural resource. Hydrology and hydrogeology are distinct fields of study that employ different methods and techniques, but they overlap to p...

48% of European Rivers are exposed to Hydromorphological pressures.

48% of European Rivers are exposed to Hydromorphological pressures - Source: EC Environment. Hydromorphology considers the physical character and water content of water bodies. Good hydromorphological conditions support aquatic ecosystems (i.e. hydromorphological elements such as water flow and substrate provide physical habitat for biota such as fish, invertebrates and aquatic macrophytes). W...

World Water Day

World Water Day, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 is ‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century. Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their he...

Hydrogeology and Hydrogeologists

What is Hydrogeology Hydrogeology (hydro- meaning water, and -geology meaning the study of the Earth) is the area of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of groundwater in the soil and rocks of the Earth's crust (commonly in aquifers). What does a Hydrogeologist do? A hydrogeologist makes a significant contribution to the environment by working to better protect and manage ...
