Aquifer Types

A short describtion of the two most common aquifers; confined and unconfined.

HSAG Calculating Groundwater Velocity Unconfined Aquifer

Observe the movement of water through an unconfined aquifer and calculate its groundwater velocity.

Boussinesq, unconfined groundwater flow on a sloping aquifer bottom

A nice example of groundwater flow on an inclined sloop. The data are in the title of the figure. We start with some initial head which is a sine between the...

Sinkhole test video

This is an experiment of one type of sinkhole formation. The bottom layer (filled with water) is the confined aquifer which has a small opening in the middle...

Aquifers are bodies of saturated rock and sediment through which water can move, and they provide 99% of our groundwater. Humans rely on aquifers for most of our drinking water. However, we are not only depleting this supply but are its biggest ...
