What is groundwater?
Porosity vs. Permeability
The Water Table
Zone of saturation: this is the zone contains an area where groundwater fills up all pores in the soil
water table: the boundary between both the aeration and saturation zones
aquiclude: impermeable rock that acts as a barrier to groundwater flow
aquifer: permeable rock that transmit groundwater
2 types of Aquifers
Unconfined, which is when water can flow freely and confined, whereas water flow is restricted.
Effects of depleting groundwater
-More energy from lower levels
- Stream depletion
