Hydrogeology is a branch of geology that focuses on the study and understanding of groundwater. It aims to uncover the intricate processes that occur within aquifers, which are underground rock and sediment layers that contain and transmit water. Hydrogeologists investigate the characteristics of groundwater, such as its quantity, quality, and movement, to assess its availability and sustainability. They also examine how human activities, such as pollution and extraction, can impact groundwater resources. Through their research and analysis, hydrogeologists contribute to the management and conservation of this vital natural resource.
