Stochastic approaches in groundwater hydrology have been rather limited towards evaluating the properties of flow in the porous media such as diffusion process. More recently the large scale problems of groundwater systems have been evaluated by stochastic approaches. In this paper, stochastic approaches in groundwater hydrology have been reviewed in focusing the researches by Freeze(1975). The definitions of important terms, homogeneous, uniform, and isotropic, have been discussed in connection with stochastic representations of porous media or aquifers.
