Abstract:
Most modern textbooks that deal with subsurface water, or hydrogeology, include a brief summary of the historical development of the science. In our book, we have expanded on this general theme without introducing the more technical aspects of the topic. We have, however, emphasized two important points that are commonly overlooked. First, most of the fundamental contributions made during the 1800's were not American but were primarily European. Second, 1885 was the date of the first ground -water publication of the United States Geological Survey, but it did not mark the birth of hydrogeology in the United States. Some American contributions were made about 80 years earlier. The authors are grateful for the assistance of many individuals. T. N. Narasimhan, M. P. Anderson, F. M. Phillips, D. B. Stephens, J. V. Brahana, C. W. Fetter, D. Deming, and D. I. Siegel were given the initial version of our book and provided numerous useful comments.
