Groundwater storage in confined aquifers

Herbert Wang

Book Description: Many deep confined aquifers have experienced steep drops in water pressure and are endangered from over consumption. The invisibility of groundwater makes its management dependent on understanding the geological setting and physics of extraction. This book traces the historical development of the concept of groundwater storage in confined aquifers by focusing on benchmark studies by the United States Geological Survey, which began in the latter part of the 19th century in the Dakota Territory and span over half a century. It is the “Saga of the Dakota Sandstone.”
