Summary
Hard rocks have a strong influence upon the hydrological cycle and their poor ability to transmit, store and yield groundwater may impose constraints upon socio-economic development. This book deals with the new methodologies and the means of exploiting groundwater resources in hard rocks: exploration and well-location, well-building methods, borehole and dug-well designs, methods for the analysis of pumping test data. Case studies are included
