Long Demonstrations, Set #2

Session #2 (Monday 8:30) , repeated in Session #5 (Wednesday 3:15)



L2A: Constructing Flow Nets with GIS (Robert Newton, Smith College). Visualizing the potentiometric surface is the first step in understanding patterns of groundwater flow. GIS software is a useful tool for constructing 3 dimensional surfaces from arrays of elevation data. In this example, we will use ArcMap together with elevations of seepage lakes from the Sand Hills of Nebraska to examine the underlying groundwater flow system.

L2B: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Water Resource (Constantin Cranganu, New York University). Water is fundamental to the human life and the functioning of the natural environment. The scope and scale of water resources problems make GIS software a powerful tool for developing solutions. This session will demonstrate how water quality and environmental health issues can be analyzed together, how hydrologic information can be built up, and how decisions can be made using GIS.
