Depending on the aim of investigation, groundwater recharge studies contribute to develop long- or short-term strategies on water use. In a first step, it must be clarified to which extent the studied hydro-geologic system discharges under steady-state respectively transient hydraulic conditions; both conditions occur naturally world wide, because of the always existing global changes in climates, vegetation, and discharge levels (chapter 1), which became accelerated through human activities since the beginning of the industrial age.
