Mary Anderson's selection for this Benchmark Series volume, and the commentaries that she has prepared to accompany the 35 reprinted papers, detail the development of groundwater hydrology during the 20th century. The fundamentals are covered with a translation of Darcy's experimental results that led to Darcy's law, as well as classic papers by Meinzer, Theis and Hubbert, among others. The development of pumping test theory and practice, approaches to estimating aquifer parameters in the field, and flow system analysis are dealt with. Papers reflecting early concerns regarding quantification of uncertainty, how recognition of groundwater interaction with surface water grew, and research on contaminant occurrence and transport, are included. Slichter's (1905) seminal contribution that identified dispersion in the field, and Skibitzke & Robinsons (1963) laboratory findings, are linked with more recent attempts to represent dispersion and heterogeneity with models.
