Since 1956 a world-wide forum on the management of groundwater for the benefit of mankind and the environment 

iah
IAH is an international scientific and educational organisation whose aims are to promote research into and understanding of the occurrence and importance of groundwater, and its proper management and protection for the common good throughout the world. Founded in 1956, IAH now has around 3900 members in 135 countries, and achieves its objectives through a programme of congresses and conferences, scientific commissions and national chapters and the publication of books, as well as publishing the Hydrogeology Journal. In recent years, IAH has played an increasingly important role as an advocate for groundwater in world water policy, and has formed partnerships with other international associations and the agencies of the UN system to further this aim. The Association is open to scientists, engineers and other professionals working in the fields of groundwater resources, and welcomes all who support our aims to join IAH. You can follow the link below to find out more about groundwater and groundwater events, about the benefits of membership of IAH, how the Association is run and about our activities

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    Hydrogeology Journal has acquired a large worldwide readership since its inception in 1992. The Journal's emphasis is to:

    Foster understanding of hydrogeology, a practical discipline aimed at bettering the human situation on earth; Describe worldwide progress in hydrogeology; and Provide an inexpensive and widely accessible forum for scientists, researchers, engineers, and practitioners in developing and industrialized countries alike.

    A mainstream paper in Hydrogeology Journal integrates subsurface hydrology and geology with the other supporting disciplines (such as geochemistry, geophysics, geomorphology, geobiology, surface-water hydrology, tectonics, mathematics, numerical modeling, economics, and sociology) to explain phenomena observed in the field.

    Hydrogeology Journal publishes peer-reviewed papers in both theoretical and applied aspects of hydrogeologic science, including:

    Theoretical and field studies ranging in scale from local areas and short time periods to regional or global problems and geologic time; Techniques and innovative instrumentation in the laboratory and field (for example, hydrologic, geochemical, geophysical, and mathematical); Water-resource and related mineral-resource evaluations; Reports of observed hydrogeologic phenomena; Overviews of hydrogeologic systems of interest in various regions; State-of-the-art-reviews; Philosophy of scientific methods in hydrogeology; Interaction between populations and hydrogeologic systems; Economics of hydrogeologic systems; Ramifications of hydrogeology on both environmental protection and optimal employment of natural resources; and History of hydrogeology and biographies of eminent hydrogeologists.
