NGWA releases mobile application of groundwater and water well system terms

July 4, 2011  By Administrator

July 4, 2011, Westerville, OH – A glossary of ground water and water well terms is now available as an iPhone application downloadable online from the App Store from the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).

The application for Apple’s iPhone is offered at an introductory price of $1.99 US through July 30. Also, educational institutions can receive a discounted rate for multiple purchases.
NGWA executive director Kevin McCray said the Lexicon of Groundwater and Water Well System Terms contains more than 1,900 terms useful to all professionals in the ground water industry, and other professionals and students in the Earth sciences.
While NGWA uses the terms internally and for its three journals—Ground Water, Ground Water Monitoring and Remediation, and Water Well Journal—McCray said the glossary serves a greater purpose.
“Here, in one place, the user can find reliable definitions for terms critical to professional work, research, and study dependent upon accuracy and precision,” McCray said. “This glossary represents a comprehensive listing of groundwater and water well terms reviewed exhaustively by a task force of 60 groundwater industry professionals.”
“And now, with this mobile application, professionals, researchers and students can get the definition of terms they need with unprecedented ease,” McCray said.
The glossary also is available as a downloadable PDF file from NGWA’s online bookstore at
