Groundwater science projects within the Thames Basin

An understanding of hydrogeological processes is usually developed at individual sites or river reaches. Transferring this site-specific understanding to the entire Thames Basin is problematic because of the increase in geological complexity at large scales.

As a result there are very few studies that consider the hydrogeology of the Thames Basin in its entirety.

However the introduction of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) asks that we adopt a basin-wide approach to water resource management and for this reason we have begun to look at basin-scale hydrogeological understanding.
