Mensagem do Editor: Os artigos da escolha dos Editores de 2017

Editors’ Choice articles are ones that were printed in the 2017 Hydrogeology Journal (HJ) volume and selected for special attention by our editorial team (Martin Appold, Jean-Michel Lemieux, Liz Screaton, Maria-Theresia Schafmeister, Cliff Voss). At the conclusion of the publishing year, the editors selected five articles from among the ∼140 printed articles in the regular issues. These articles are distinguished by a variety of positive attributes including: outstanding science, innovative approach, potentially important conclusions, interesting field area or phenomenon, unusual topic, political/social/historical/philosophical interest, etc. The HJ editors believe that readers will find these articles to be especially interesting and valuable.

Editors’ Choice articles are highlighted on the International Association of Hydrogeologists’ (IAH) website (, in the IAH newsletter, and on the Hydrogeology Journal website (

The Editors’ Choice articles for the 2017 publishing year are listed in Table 1.
