What is Groundwater ?
Porosity VS Permeability ?
Porosity is the amount of space in high soil particles .Porosity affects groundwater depending on the amount of space in between soil particles
high porosity =lots of space between soil
low porosity =little space between soil
Permeability are materials ability to allow fluids to pass.
Things in the water table ?
Aquiclude -A body of rock or stratum of sediment that acts as a barrier to the flow of ground water .
Aquifer- A body of permeable rock that can or transmit groundwater .
Zone of Aeration - Region in the group in which pore spaces are filled with air and sometimes water .
Zone of Saturation- The area beneath the water table where all pore spaces are completely filled with water.
Water Table - The level below which the ground is filled with water .
A unconfined aquifer , water flows freely .
A confined aquifer , water flows constricted by imperable rock layers called aquiclude.
