  • Aquifer Depletion 2 - 743 Words
    An aquifer is an underground layer of water bearing rock. Many areas on earth have an underlying aquifer, which can supply fresh water through the use of a well. Aquifers were first tapped for water in the early 1900's for irrigation. Aquifers were originally believed to be an inexhaustible resource thus humans began tapping them for municipal and industrial uses as well (Aquifer, 2007). Now, many countries are over pumping aquifers in a struggle to fulfill their growing water supply demands....

  • Solving Vertical and Horizontal Well Hydraulics Problems Analytically in Cartesian Coordinates with Vertical and Horizontal Anisotropies
    A new generalized three-dimensional analytical solution is developed for a partially-penetrating vertical rectangular parallelepiped well screen in a confined aquifer by solving the three-dimensional transient ground water flow differential equation in x-y-z Cartesian coordinates system for drawdown by taking into account the three principal hydraulic conductivities (K _x, K _y, and K _z) along the x-y-z coordinate directions. The fully penetrating screen case becomes equivalent to the single...

  • The Consequences of Human Use of Water
    APES 3/22/12 One consequence of human use of water is the wasted water resulted from inefficient irrigation. Less than half of the freshwater we use for irrigation is actually absorbed by crops. Wasteful practices like “flood and furrow” irrigation, which involve liberally flood fields with water, use up water unnecessarily because it may evaporate from standing pools in the field. This kind accounts for 90% of worldwide irrigation. Overirrigation leads to waterlogging and salinization, which...

    GEOHYDROLOGY HYDROLOGIC CYCLE The movement of water on the earth's surface and through the atmosphere is known as the hydrologic cycle. Water is taken up by the atmosphere from the earth's surface in vapour form through evaporation. It may then be moved from place to place by the wind until it is condensed back to its liquid phase to form clouds. Water then returns to the surface of the earth in the form of either liquid (rain) or solid (snow, sleet, etc.) precipitation. Water transport can...
