Introduction

Paul Witherspoon and the Birth of Contemporary Fractured Rock Hydrogeology

Abstract

Paul Witherspoon has been a seminal influence on the development of ideas and methodologies related to the hydrogeology of fractured rocks. His interest in the topic grew from his earliest studies on caprock integrity for underground gas storage, through his midcareer emphasis on the role of aquitards in hydrogeological systems, to his later work on thermohydrologic and hydromechanical couplings in geothermal systems and nuclear waste isolation.
