Summary
Understanding of groundwater has developed significantly since 1972 when the first part of the original volume of Groundwater Studies was published by UNESCO. Yet for someone who is just commencing the study of groundwater, there is still a need for a text which will help in starting their work. For those with a greater experience in hydrogeological investigations, there is a need to increase awareness both of more recent work and information about techniques which are outside their previous experience. This new volume is intended to meet both of these needs and therefore it has the subtitle `An International Guide for Hydrogeological Investigations?.
