Summary:

Groundwater prospecting involves various methods to locate suitable quality and quantity groundwater for extraction. Groundwater prospecting and extraction can both be part of general water resource management strategies to increase supply, or respond to climate change induced water scarcity or variability. Prospecting and extraction methods depend on the desired water quality and its final utilization, and can include hydrogeological investigations, geophysical surveys, remote sensing assessments, and the more simple method of investigating already existing well sites in the area and their depths and characteristics.
