The developments in science pave way to the betterment of the mankind. A field of research develops only when it copes up with the recent developments. This book aims to bring together and document the recent developments in the field of water research. This book is an agglomeration of different aspects of water research and recent developments covering surface water, rain water and ground water. Several multi-disciplinary papers covering geophysical applications, hydrogeochemical aspects, isotopic signature, speciation of trace elements, etc
