Title: Ground water and small research basins: an historical perspective

Author: Verry, Elon S.;

Date: 2003

Source: Ground Water. 41(7): 1005-1007.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Scientists have been studying hydrological processes within a watershed context for hundreds of years. Throughout much of that history, little attention was paid to the significance of ground water; in nearly all early studies, ground water was never considered. In many recent studies, ground water fluxes are assumed to be insignificantly small. The following is a brief history of the evolution of watershed studies, including the recent increase in interest regarding the influence of ground water on the hydrology and geochemistry of research watersheds.
