Groundwater Geophysics in Hard Rock

1st Edition

Prabhat Chandra Chandra
October 19, 2015

In hard rock terrain, shallow water wells generally have a poor to moderate yield. Sinking wells deeply to tap yielding fracture zones often backfires, because the borehole may miss the saturated fracture zones at depths. A wrong approach to groundwater exploration in hard rock has therefore often...
