Abstract

Many Celtic regions comprise hard fractured rock aquifers and hilly terrain. They are generally regions which have also been affected by repeated glaciation and deglaciation during the Pleistocene period. This has influenced their hydraulic properties and the groundwater flow systems which have developed. Geophysical borehole logging provides a useful method to examine the occurrence of groundwater, water inflows and the movement of water in local and regional groundwater flow systems. The downhole measurements show that wellbore flow, aquifer layering and separate groundwater circulations are common features of the hydrogeology.
