Sometimes referred to as groundwater contamination, groundwater pollution is not as easily classified as surface water pollution, as contamination may not be easy to recognize. Groundwater, by it's very nature, is more susceptible to contamination from sources that may not directly affect surface water bodies. Groundwater can become contaminated by those drilling for oil or gas wells. Groundwater may be polluted through a spill or ongoing release of chemical or radionuclide contaminants into soil, polluting the aquifer below yet not the surface water body above. This is defined as a toxin plume, and as it travels it is defined as a plume front. Analysis of groundwater pollution usually focuses on the soil characteristics, geology,hydro geology, hydrology and the nature of the contaminants at the site.
