Hydrogeological environments in Africa

How and where groundwater occurs depends primarily on geology; geomorphology/weathering; and rainfall (both current and historic). The interaction between these three factors gives rise to complex hydrogeological environments with countless variations in the quantity, quality, ease of access to and renewability of groundwater resources. Developing groundwater resources therefore depends on a good understanding of hydrogeology. Africa has huge diversity in geology, climate and hydrology, and as a result, the hydrogeology of Africa is hugely variable. (Read the full article...)
