Abstract: "Amongst the five elements which are so basic to man*s existence in the Universe, water is considered the •Elan Vital'. This natural resource occurs both as surface and ground water **>dies. Keeping in view the plentiful supplies of the surface water in our country, it looks cynical to over emphasise the importance of the investigations related to groundwater resources. Kit of late, many an experience has shown that a mew lease on life and forward look to growth in agricultural end industrial economy could only be vouchsafed through plentiful groundwater supplies. The area of the present studies is surrounded on three side, by surface water sources. Fascinating to note is that the water supply largely depend, on the ground water resource, tapped by deep tubewells. This very paradox prompted the writer to choose the subject matter of the thesis as something ekin to an applied investigation of the ground water resource, in and around Roorkee. though the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Boorkee and the Uttar Pradesh Irrigation Research itetltuto situated at Roorkee have carried out researches related basically to ground water, no attempt has been made to combine knowledge of geology with ground water hydrology. The chief aim of the writer is to present the data on these lines and the study dominates the applied aspect, over the de.criptive and fundamental feature.. To achieve the .am., the present study i. .upperted by projected field data and inventory over a period of four year, from i960 to 1964. Thi. ha. proved useful towards the •malysi. of ground water regime .tudie, in the area chosen -iifor the purpose. This approach was found necessary as the objective was not only collection of data and apparent academic discussion but also utilisation of result, purpose fully. While presenting the material, emphasis has also been placed on methods of analysis ©f ground water data related to special situations such as nature of ground water reservoir, as revealed by isopach maps, sedimentologieal aspects of the alluvial formations, mapping of the specific capacities of the alluvial deposits, hydrometereological studies, analysis of geohydrologie parameters of water bearing formations, statistical analysis of water level fluctuations, thermograph studies, ground water chemistry of the aquifers and quanti tative assessment of ground water potential. It may also be realised that the boundaries of the chosen topic by the writer are undefined, especially keeping in view of the progress made in the technically advanced countries in the science of hydrogeology. However, it has been endeavoured to include all that was considered significant and useful and could be performed within the limited space, available time and the facilities."
