This book is the outcome of the invited topics from various international experts in the field of groundwater resource evaluation, characterization, augmentation, restoration, modeling and management. It comprehensively deals with the resource evaluation through remote sensing (RS) along with GIS, resistivity tomography for identification of potential bore-holes in hard rock region, aquifer parameterization through pumping tests, interpolation of sparse spatial data through the theory of regionalized variables (Geostatistics) and augmentation of groundwater resource through aquifer storage and recovery method (ASR). Characterization of fractured medium parameters, identification of sources of Fluoride and Arsenic contamination and its remediation, groundwater modeling procedures to understand the flow and contaminant migration phenomenon, inverse modeling to evolve the parameters which are controlling the groundwater movement and mass transport and management aspects of the groundwater resources through community participation, and artificial recharge and remediation of contaminated aquifer system have also been brought out in this textbook. It is hoped that the book will be useful for students, young researchers, teachers and managers engaged in the assessment and management of groundwater.
