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 two head boundaries at the top...

The Ogallala Aquifer

Farmers in Kansas and other states that sit atop the Ogallala aquifer -- the largest freshwater aquifer in North America -- are pumping out water for crop irrigation far faster than natural...

PETE BALNAVES: There's known leakage between the top unconfined aquifer and the bottom aquifer, and so even taking water out of the lower aquifer could change the equilibrium. CAROLINE WINTER: Pete Balnaves says that clean water is precious, and ...

The wells monitor the first unconfined aquifer, rather than the drinking water aquifer, so that any contamination would be detected well before the drinking water aquifer would be impacted. “We also monitor the lagoons to make sure the integrity of the ...
