Mapping Groundwater for Sustaining Water Supply

But current monitoring tools are either costly or insufficient for deeper aquifers, limiting our ability to monitor and practice sustainable management. Now, a new paper bridges seismology and hydrology with an application that uses seismometers as a cost-effective way to monitor and map groundwater.
