Groundwater Field Station for Geoscience Students
Paul F. Hudak January-February 1999 Journal of Geography v98 n1 p23-28

This article from the Journal of Geography describes how to create a low-cost groundwater field station for a college hydrogeology course. The article discusses how students use the station to collect and interpret data from wells, and to study spatial hydraulic-head measurements to learn about groundwater flow. The article also discusses why hands-on activities are a valuable addition to a hydrogeology course.
