Induced Infiltration Animation: Woburn Wells G & H and the Aberjona River part of Activities
Induced infiltration of surface water into an unconfined aquifer by municipal wells is a common occurrence and an increasingly important regulatory issue across the U.S. The role of the Aberjona River in providing ...
When Does Aquifer Heterogeneity Matter? Predicting the Influence of Alternative Conceptual Models on Contaminant Plume Migration part of Activities
In this classroom activity, students are given two alternative conceptualizations of aquifer/aquitard distributions in a glacial aquifer system and asked to predict differences in the migration of contaminant ...
Wetland Visualizations part of Visualizations
Compiled by Suzanne Savanick at SERC. Find wetland images and visualizations that illustrate wetland loss or wetland function. Browse the complete set of Visualization Collections. National Estuary Program Habitat ...
Geology and Ecology of Soils part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Soils provide nutrients, water and support for growing plants, host an amazing variety of organisms, and even influence global climate. This class will focus on the dynamic systems in soil and on the interactions ...
Geohydrology part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
GEOhydrology is the study of groundwater and its physical and chemical interactions with the physical environment. The course will be focused on those geologic principles that govern the occurrence, movement and ...
Watersheds and Hydrologic Cycle part of Visualizations
Find animations showing the hydrologic cycle, how watersheds are delineated, and film footage of a trip down the Rhine River watershed.
Effect of Fractures on Groundwater Flow Patterns part of Activities
This exercise uses TopoDrive (Hsieh, 2001), a simple, easy-to-use model available from the USGS, to explore the effects of fracture heterogeneities on groundwater flow patterns.
Groundwater part of Visualizations
Find animations exploring permeability, groundwater speed, the hydrologic cycle and groundwater, cone of depression, and geyser eruption.
Principles of Soil Science part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Soils are complex features that reflect both past and present environmental conditions. This course is an intensive survey of the properties, genesis, and spatial distribution of soils, emphasizing key applications ...
Earth and Life (a team-taught 16 credit program combining geology and biology) part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
This course was a 3-quarter program (F,W,S) with 16 credits per/quarter (because Evergreen has a "block system"). This was a team-taught 16 program (as are most programs at Evergreen) that combined lower ...
