Abstract:

Groundwater-surface water interactions include the exchange of fluids and solutes between groundwater and surface water, which can affect water quality and water supply. Investigating the interaction of groundwater and surface water is essential to water managers and hydrologists for the improvement of effective water-resource policy, water resource protection and management. The effects of groundwater-surface-water exchange can occur on a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Hence, useful predictions based on point measurements are difficult because the characteristics of groundwater-surface water exchange can vary over time and across a site or region. Research into groundwater-surface water interaction has revealed many challenges on our ability to make measurements accurately as well as on appropriate scale. Despite these challenges, innovations in monitoring methods using geophysics, tracers, temperature, and remote sensing have provided new insights into spatial and temporal variation in groundwater-surface water interactions.


Keywords: Groundwater (GW)-surface water (SW) interaction, Scales of interaction, Monitoring challenges, In-situ monitoring of GW-SW interaction
