Groundwater Assessment allows to knowledge the management and the governance of water resources. This assessment is based on the hydrogeological characterization of aquifers (porous media, fractured, karst, transboundary and coastal systems) that is coupled to industrial, environmental and social factors. The groundwater assessment requires a development of methods and tools who have not stopped evolving according to the thematic assessments as marine intrusion, mining activities, supply of water, exploration of the new water resources. Over the years, the degradation of the quantitative and qualitative of water resources are identified in the worldwide and due especially to the urbanization, drying of shallow wells, modification of the recharge area, intensive pumping resources in deeper wells, additions of new wells, intensive use particularly for industrial, agricultural activities and domestic water supply.
This Special Issue brings together emerging approaches related to the methods and tools of the groundwater assessment. This has led to emphasis on planned and optimal development in terms of quality and quantity of water resources, groundwater extraction assessments and groundwater quantity estimates in order to knowledge the comprehension of hydrogeological parameters that characterize the physics of groundwater flow in aquifers which are considered as an important stage for groundwater resource assessments, to assess the groundwater flow system including seasonal groundwater and discharge annual recharge. The present special issue draws from worldwide hydrogeological investigations in the fields, laboratory approaches, numerical simulations of groundwater flow and modelling of the contaminant transfer and multidisciplinary approaches which are conducted for a better assessment of resources in heterogeneous hydrogeological systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
