Groundwater is an essential and vital water resource for drinking water production, agricultural irrigation, and industrial processes. The better understanding of physical and chemical processes in aquifers enables more reliable decisions and reduces the investments concerning water management. This Special Issue on "Water Flow, Solute and Heat Transfer in Groundwater" of Water focuses on the recent advances in groundwater dynamics. In this editorial, we introduce 12 high-quality papers that

By presenting this integrative volume, we aim to transfer knowledge to hydrologists, hydraulic engineers, and water resources planners who are engaged in the sustainable development of groundwater resources.
