GROUNDWATER

  • Water stored in the ground

  • Moving slowly

  • Part of the water cycle

  • Comes from precipitation- infiltrates from land surface.

  • Upper layer unsaturated zone- does not saturate the soil

  • Saturated zone- all the pores, cracks, and spaces between rock particles are saturated with water

  • Aquifer- water-bearing formations yielding enough water

  • Top where groundwater occurs is water table.

  • Aquifers replenishment depends on geologic, meteorologic, topographic, and human factors.

  • Porosity and permeability changes groundwater recharge vary all over the world

Types of Water

  • Meteoric Water

  • Connate Water

  • Magmatic/Juvenile Water

Aquiclude & Aquitard

Aquiclude: A hydrogeologic unit which, although porous and capable of storing water, does not transmit it at rates sufficient to furnish an appreciable supply for a well or spring.

Aquitard: A confining bed that retards but does not prevent the flow of water to or from an adjacent aquifer; a leaky confining bed.
