1 Monday February 14 : Groundwater Discharge: Pumping and Springs Weds February 16: Groundwater and Surface Water Assignment #3 due (available on Sakai) Quiz “Extra” online quiz (based on Hydro Cycle lecture – Jan 19 th ) closes on Sakai You can submit your presentation topic ideas (a few sentences) any time. First come-first served for topics and dates. Topic ideas are due by the Wednesday before spring break. For aquifers, flow is generally horizontal. Transmissivity is hydraulic conductivity x aquifer thickness (T=Kb) Pumping a well creates a cone of depression Where does pumped water come from? Unconfined aquifer: pores drain as the water table drops Where does pumped water come from? Confined aquifer stays saturated. Water comes from compression of the material (and expansion of water) Storativity (S) is defined as how much water is released when head drops 1 unit. For confined aquifer, storativity is a function of the aquifer thickness and its compressibility For unconfined aquifer, storativity = specific yield.
