Groundwater Dictionary - a helpful resource

Every industry has its own terminology and jargon and the groundwater industry is no different. The Institute for Groundwater Studies, University of the Free State developed a Groundwater Dictionary which will assist you in understanding this terminology. It was funded by the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry, Directorate: Water Resource Planning Systems (now known as Department of Water & Sanitation.)

In this version of the Groundwater Dictionary, the team of contributors present the most current knowledge on the subject of groundwater science.
