Abstract

Fractured bedrock aquifers have traditionally been regarded as low-productivity aquifers, with only limited relevance to regional groundwater dynamics and storage. However, as this volume demonstrates with contributions from Europe, Africa and America, it is increasingly being recognized that understanding and characterizing these complex bedrock aquifers is fundamental to managing catchments and subsurface water and energy resources.
