Groundwater Discharge and Flow Rate part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This activity allows students to understand the groundwater flow. Using a groundwater map, they will draw flow lines and determine the discharge and rate of flow.
Porosity and Water Flow in Soils part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
Three different types of sediments will be taken and the porosity and water flow rate for each type will be determined. From this activity, students will understand concepts of porosity and water flow through soil material.
Finding Soil Material for a Construction Project part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
For this activity, students will prepare soil maps and data tables using the soil data from United States Department of Agriculture- Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS). Using 'Web Soil Survey (WSS)', an online program developed and operated by USDA-NRCS, a small area around Marietta City will be chosen and possible sites for acquiring soil as a construction material for an engineering project will be determined.
