The book draws heavily on results of three studies of groundwater resources in fractured rock aquifers .

Traditional groundwater flow modelling is based on the Darcy's law which is valid when the flow is laminar. However, the water flow in fractured aquifers can be non-laminar in discontinuities and.   Understanding of groundwater flow and solute transport in fractured rocks is vital for analysis of water resources, water quality and environmental protection, geotechnical and engineering projects, and geothermal energy production. intervals below land surface), vertical patterns of ground water flow can be determined.

This is an indicator of linear or parallel flow as opposed to radial flow, and often occurs in fractured bedrock aquifers. Linear flow can be caused by a pumping well intersecting a vertical or near-vertical fracture such that flow to the well, at least initially, is dominated by the linear flow along that single fracture. Fractured-Rock Aquifers: Understanding an Increasingly Important Source of Water. This publication is also available in pdf format. Downlod the pdf file (3 MB) [Acrobat Reader] Fractured-rock aquifers in the United States provide water for domestic use, locations for isolating hazardous and toxic waste, and sites for foundations and infrastructure. The Water Research Commission identified hard rock (or fractured rock) aquifers as a theme of groundwater research requiring a high priority in terms of funding. The present project is therefore a part of the WRC Fractured Rock Research Programme. The chlorofluorocarbon gases, CFC, CFC and CFC, were developed during the s.
