Adventures in Virtual Reality
http://www.beg.utexas.edu/education/advnvr/vrfrnt.htm


In this activity, students look at the topography and cross-section of El Paso Texas and Edwards Aquifer in virtual reality, using historical data of the Edwards Aquifer that contains information on recharge, discharge and precipitation. From this data, conclusions can be made about future discharges of the aquifer.
