Groundwater is often referred to as a "hidden resource". In this area you can find out more about the importance of groundwater, whether for your own interest or studies, or to pass on to others.

We hope that the information we give encourages you to value water, including groundwater, more highly. We also hope to encourage more individuals to think about following a career in hydrogeology or a water-related subject.
Currently working in the field of hydrogeology/groundwater related matters and seeking specialised information or professional development?

This area includes links to a variety of courses, training and events. It also provides leads and resources concerning the basic and relatively unchanging principles of hydrogeology right through to highly-specialist scientific investigations of topical and complex subjects. IAH's aim is to encourage and harness such knowledge, to stimulate further research, and to help like-minded professionals network, learn and share.
