As the groundwater is depleting at increasing rates in worldwide, it is become necessary to protect and manage aquifers worldwide. Therefore, an attempt has been made to protect and manage the aquifers all over India. The title of this book itself reflects the objective and applications of this book in the direction of managing groundwater storage. This book is based on the geophysical survey done by author itself for the investigation of aquifers in a particular region. Present book encompasses the suitable methodology adopted for the aquifer mapping which includes collection and processing of sounding data using software. The use of geophysical techniques for aquifer investigation is demonstrated with case studies. The present study reveals the current scenario of groundwater in study area and its comparison with standard data generated by apex agency of groundwater in country. Overall it is concluded that the 2D and 3D models of water bearing formations can be generated by using software in association with geophysical data. This reflects that the suitability of geophysical survey for revealing groundwater potential zones.
