Shale Baseline Sampling of Groundwater in North Carolina
Melinda Chapman and Sharon Fitzgerald discuss the U.S. Geological Survey groundwater sampling program to characterize water-suppy well water quality in the area of North Carolina with potential for shale gas production. The sampling program is designed to provide a pre-devolpment baseline that can b...

Water-level Change in the High Plains Aquifer System
In 1986, Congress directed the USGS to regularly report groundwater-level changes in the High Plains aquifer system. To comply with this directive, the USGS compares water levels measured every two years. By measuring water levels across the entire aquifer in one year, measurements made two years la...

Simulated groundwater declines in Central Arkansas
A groundwater-flow model of the Mississippi embayment was used to evaluate changes in water-level altitudes after the addition of wells that simulate potential future pumping from the Sparta aquifer in the Bayou Meto-Grand Prairie area of eastern Arkansas (shown within the black outline) for the 30-...

Paul Hsieh and The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
In April of 2010, Paul Hsieh, a research scientist, readily stepped up to an opportunity to provide a service to the public that pulled him away from his work, that pulled him out of his environment. This was not something thatís in his job description, but it was a way for him to make a tangible c...

The Mississippi Embayment - Declining Water Levels in a Shallow Aquifer
The USGS recently constructed a computer model of groundwater in the Mississippi embayment. This model was used to simulate the rise or decline of water level in a shallow aquifer. Water from this shallow aquifer is utilized by the agricultural based economy in the area. In the animation, groundwate...

Stormwater, Impervious Surface, and Stream Health
Urban development is associated with an increase in impervious surfaces, that is, surfaces such as rooftops, sidewalks, and streets that prevent precipitation from infiltrating into the groundwater.  Impervious surfaces increase the volume and energy of stormwater that reaches streams and can l...

Water Vision
Hydrologists with the Nebraska Water Science Center use geophysics to unlock the groundwater mystery in eastern Nebraska. Because the area was a dumping ground for glacial till when the glaciers retreated 12,000 years ago, the groundwater resources are hard to quantify with more traditional surveyin...

The Mississippi embayment — Where Does the Water Come From?
As the animation begins, the land surface of the Mississippi embayment fades away to reveal underground geologic formations (shown as shades of blue, brown, and gray surfaces). A slice deep into the earth cuts off the eastern half of the embayment so we can peer into the formations (aquifers) beneat...

The Mississippi embayment — a look underground
Water, oil, and gas wells (shown as green lines) are drilled to hundreds or thousands of feet below land surface in an area known as the Mississippi embayment. Information gathered from these wells was used to create a 3D computer model of underground formations. Many of these formations (shown as s...
