Understanding Aquitards and Aquicludes

This resource introduces aquitards and aquicludes, and discusses some of the cutting-edge approaches used to understand the movement of water and contaminants through the ground.

3D geological modelling: structural, facies, properties & conductivity

3D geological modelling: structural, facies, properties & conductivity

Having a geologically realistic conceptual site model is important for characterising hydraulic connectivity throughout aquifer systems, and modelling water transit times.

Quantifying vertical water flow using natural heat as tracer

Quantifying vertical water flow using natural heat as tracer

The use of heat as a tracer promises to be an excellent alternative to traditional assessment methods for quantifying exchange between surface water and ground water.

Groundwater levels and aquifer storage

Groundwater levels and aquifer storage

There are two common mistakes often made when calculating how much groundwater storage levels have changed.

DIY groundwater monitoring

This fact sheet provides a brief review of groundwater monitoring for owners and users of water bores.

Groundwater myths

Some of the most common misunderstandings about groundwater resources are addressed.

Water & time

Water & time

The time-scales over which water circulates through the hydrologic cycle are important for sustainable management of our water resources.

What is groundwater?

What is groundwater?

Groundwater is a vast and slow moving resource that greatly exceeds the volume of other available freshwater sources.

Global water resources

Global water resources

Understanding how water on land, in the oceans and in the atmosphere is connected in the hydrologic cycle is essential for the successful management of our water resources.
