In recent years, groundwater (GW) is becoming increasingly important due to population growth, preparation for climate change, flood control, and above all water quality awareness. While in far and recent history most of the water for agricultural and domestic use was of surface origin, in the recent few decades, the portion of groundwater used in many countries is significantly higher than the portion of surface water used. This makes the study of groundwater and related fields such as vadose zone hydrology, subsurface contaminant fate and transport of high importance.
