Groundwater depletion, a term often defined as long-term water-level declines caused by sustained groundwater pumping, is a key issue associated with groundwater use. Many areas of the United States are experiencing groundwater depletion.

For example, terrestrial hydraulic gradients that reflect both short and long term climatic conditions almost always transport both surface and ground water toward the coast. There is plenty of water in the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay to recharge aquifers in the area, but that bay/ocean water is salt water.

The Atlantic Ocean salt level is 35 parts/thousand. Water with salt levels greater than parts/thousand is "brackish," and less desirable for drinking, irrigation, or industrial uses.

The purposes of this report are (1) to document the magnitude and trends in long-term groundwater depletion in the United States, and (2) to provide additional background information and details that support the methods and calculations used to estimate groundwater depletion for the 40 areas and 1 land use category of depletion in the United.

GROUND WATER CHEMISTRY The most important sources of dissolved substances in ground water are the minerals in the soil, in near-surface sediments, and in the sediments of the aquifer which contain the ground water. The chemical quality of the recharge also influences the quality of the water in the aquifers.

Figure 1. Ground water is the second smallest of the four main pools of water on Earth, and river flow to the oceans is one of the smallest fluxes, yet ground water and surface water are the components of the hydrologic system that humans use most.

The least mineralized ground water is found in abroad belt that extends southward from the New England states, along the Atlantic Coast to Florida, and then continues to parallel much of the Gulf Coast.

Similarly, along the Pacific Coast from Washington to central California, the mineral content is also very low. Hydrogeology and simulation of ground-water flow and land-surface subsidence in the northern part of the Gulf Coast aquifer system, Texas / (Reston, Va.: U.S.

Florida is well known for its magnificent beaches and entertainment parks, but it also has a large number of magnificent lakes that provide respite from busy daily lives, places to come for the winter for the snow birds, great spots to catch some prize fish and spectacular environment for water sports – kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and nature observing.

Declining water quality is another consequence of climate change. Water temperature, for example, will generally rise in streams, lakes, and reservoirs as air temperature rises. This tends to lead to lower levels of dissolved oxygen in water, hence more stress on the fish, insects, crustaceans and other aquatic animals that rely on oxygen.

Unit 8 // Section 1. Water resources are under major stress around the world. Rivers, lakes, and underground aquifers supply fresh water for irrigation, drinking, and sanitation, while the oceans provide habitat for a large share of the planet’s food supply.

Today, however, expansion of agriculture, damming, diversion, over-use, and pollution threaten these irreplaceable.

Saltwater intrusion is the movement of saline water into freshwater aquifers, which can lead to groundwater quality degradation, including drinking water sources, and other consequences. Saltwater intrusion can naturally occur in coastal aquifers, owing to the hydraulic connection between groundwater and e saline water has a higher mineral content than.

In this course we will read, discuss and critically evaluate papers that deal with at least three environments where surface water and groundwater mixing is common: the coastal zone, hyporheic zone of stream beds, and carbonate karst aquifers. These topics may change depending on interests of students in the class.
