Hi everyone, today am going to cop on various ways in which underground water may exists and this are; Springs wells Artesian basin and Artesian wells. Springs A spring is a natural outflow of water from the rocks. Such water flows natural from the underground. The following are ways in which springs occur; Springs occurring where there is a well jointed limestone; springs occur when a jointed limestone area is saturated to the level of water table. The water guided by the joints flow out of...Read More...

Hi everyone, on my research today am going to look on how the occurrence of underground water can be affected in various way like; Precipitation and evaporation in the area. This are the major factors which influence the occurrence of underground water. If the precipitation is high and evaporation is low ,then more water is likely to enter the ground into the saturated zone. Consequently,the water table in areas with heavy or high precipitation is generally high or nearer to the surface.in...Read More...

. Ground water refers to the body of water derived from percolation and contained in the soil, subsoil and underlying rocks above an impermeable layer. This water originates from; When it rains, part of the rainwater runs off to form or join streams and finally into the oceans and lakes. The remaining percolates down into the ground. After winters, especially in the high latitudes, snow melts and part of this water runs off into oceans, lakes and seas but the remaining percolates into the...Read More...
Waterfalls are sharp breaks in the river channel over which the river falls. They are known as cataracts when they occur in series more or less at equidistant along the river valleys. Cataracts are generally waterfalls of considerable size falling headlong over a precipice. Waterfalls of small heights and lesser steepness are called cascades and are often applied to a series of small falls along a river. Types of waterfalls. Fan waterfalls Frozen waterfalls Horsetail waterfalls Multi-step...Read More...

River profile is the longitudinal section of a river from source to mouth. It shows the shapes of a river from source to mouth. The river profile is divided into the following three stages; Youthul stage. Mature stage. Old stage. Youthful stage. This is also known as torrential stage. It is the upper course of a river. At this stage, river is fast and aggressive. Vertical erosion is dominant and the main featuresformed are as aresult of erosion. These features include; V-shaped valleys Water...Read More...

Rivers are some of the most effective agents in the formation of various landforms. As the river flow downstream it shape and sculptures the land beds, transports eroded material and finally deposits the material which are called load. River Erosion. It take place through the following processes; Hydraulic process. Corrosion. Attrition. Solution. Hydraulic process. This is the eroding force of water on rocks and it take place when a river surges into cracks, sweeping against banks on the...Read More...

The mass of water on Earth remains fairly constant over time but the partitioning of the water into the major reservoirs is variable depending on a wide range of climatic variables.The water moves from one reservoir to another like from the ocean to the atmosphere, by the physical processes of evaporation, condensation and precipitation and subsurface flow. In doing so, the water goes through different forms like liquid and solid . The hydrological cycle involves the exchange of energy,...Read More...

Hey everyone, I'm back and the resultant of my disappearance made me come up with the importance of horological cycle and how it forms water that we use in our homes and also in the industries. Horological cycle It's the endless circulation of water from the ocean into the atmosphere through evaporation, back to the land in form of rain and again to the ocean in form of surface runoff. Usually, heavy rainfall splatters against our roofs and the land become well watered but with time, this...Read More...

Hey everyone, today my research is based on problems and solutions commonly likely to be encountered when pumping water. Having an abundance of water in the monsoon and scarcity in the dry season is a common feature. The major use of water is for irrigation industries, navigation and household consumption. Agriculture is dependent on pump irrigation but they very low in rivers and canals in dry months. Pumping water for irrigation which is also limited by the seasonal draw down of...Read More...

Water pumped from the groundwater system causes the table to lower and alters the direction of water movement. Some water that flowed to the streams no longer does so and some may be drawn in from the stream into the groundwater system, thereby reducing the amount of streamflow. Contaminants introduced at the land surface may infiltrate to the water table and flow towards a point of discharge either the well or the stream. Its declines may affect the environment for plants, animals and that...Read More...

Hey everyone, today am going to cope on how the underground water is remove from the ground, up to surface and got used up by the consumers. We get water from aquifers through the use of wells,if well is drilled in the right location in an artesian aquifers, the pressure will cause it to follow on it’s on. The saturated zone beneath the water table is called an aquifers, and they huge storehouses of water. When a water-bearing rock readily transmits water to wells and springs, it is called...Read More...

Hey everyone today i’m going to cope on groundwater, Groundwater is the water found in the cracks and spaces in soil, sand and rock. It is stored in and moves slowly through geologic formations of soil, sand and rocks called aquifers.Its helps in various ways; Supplies drinking water. Helps in the growth of food. Is a source of recharge for lakes, rivers and wetlands. Important in many industrial processes. Groundwater is often cheaper, more convenient and less vulnerable to pollution than...Read More...

The reason as to why we do not get our drinking water from the ocean is that the desalination of water requires a lot of energy. Energy and technology to desalinate water are both expensive which means that desalinating water can be pretty costly and also prefered the use of local fresh water than to desalinate seawater. How energy is used to separate salt from water. There are two methods of breaking the bonds in saltwater which are; Thermal distillation. Membrane separation. Thermal...Read More...

There are millions of people all over the world who don’t have access to water or if they have access, that water is unable to be used. About 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water and 3% of it is actually freshwater that is fit for human consumption. Clean drinking water is scarce and there are millions of people across this globe who spend their entire day searching for it. Yet people who have access to safe, clean drinking water take it for granted and don’t use it wisely. Water...Read More...

Runoff water background

Agnes Naserian (Sweetwaters)
surface runoff is the flow of water that occurs when excess storm water ,melts water or excess water from rivers and dams flows over the Earth's surface. In the year 2005, 2.2 inches of surface water runoff was measured and the volume of water flowing through a flume it covered a 295 acre basin.Runoff amount was underestimated because there was a significant portion of the period in the mid-December and mid-March in which runoff couldn't be monitored or estimated. The remaining 68 percent...Read More...
