http://www.lineone.net/dictionaryof/difficultwords/d0001377....

Aquiferous
Layer or area of land containing water.
Porous and permeable geological formation, capable of storing saturation water and allowing its circulation; its size is variable and its exploitation is usually profitable. Water penetrating ground through infiltration may be retained in the alteration layer or else go down even deeper. An aquiferous may appear when water occupying the pores and cracks between particles is not retained in them.
An aquiferous' lower limit lies on an impermeable rocky substratum or level; its upper limits is called freatic level.
