Abstract

Although the geophysical methods are being routinely used for exploration of groundwater, at times it becomes a challenge because of various factors such as geometry and depth of the aquifer and the yield of groundwater. Further, in the absence of surface manifestations of structures favorable for groundwater occurrence, instead of depending on one particular geophysical method, an integrated geophysical strategy plays an indispensable role not only in mapping and understanding the nature of aquifers but also ensures a better success rate of exploration.
