Detailed information is included on the origin, transportation, and extraction of groundwater from the subsurface. Also included are guided notes that follow the presentation with an answer key included.
This package also includes a laboratory exercise that will help students explore porosity and how to determine which sediments make the best aquifers by examining relationships between porosity, grain size, and specific yield of various sediment sizes. An answer key is included for conceptual questions to answer at the end of the lab.
