Aquifers within the Pampa del Tamarugal Basin (Atacama Desert, northern Chile) are the sole source of water for the coastal city of Iquique and the economically important mining industry. Despite this, the regional groundwater system remains poorly understood. Although it is widely accepted that aquifer recharge originates as precipitation in the Altiplano and Andean Cordillera to the east, there remains debate on whether recharge is driven primarily by near-surface groundwater flow in response ...

Tufa-depositing springs in the southern Driftless Area of Wisconsin, USA, are used to inform the response of shallow and local groundwater flow systems to changes in climate over the last 3,000 years. The springs emanate from a shallow, unconfined, sedimentary bedrock aquifer and at stratigraphic positions similar to a shallow, perched aquifer that was identified in the eastern Driftless Area. The perched aquifer was shown to be stable under current climate conditions and over decadal time scale...

Abstract Outcrop-analog studies of the Upper Cambrian Tunnel City Group sandstones in southern Wisconsin show the utility of lithostratigraphic information in hydrostratigraphic studies of siliciclastic sandstone aquifers. Recent work supports the lateral continuity of discrete groundwater flow through these sandstones. Lithologic description of the Reno Member of the Lone Rock Formation (Tunnel City Group) in outcrop and core reveals repeating sequences of three dominant lithofacies, including ...

A solid waste landfill siting exercise has been developed for an introductory environmental geology course. Students are asked to site a county landfill using the actual state guidelines developed and enforced by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The students work in small groups and synthesize information from a variety of resources, including maps of geology, hydrology, land use, and topography. After choosing a site, students explain the benefits and drawbacks of the chosen locat...

Abstract Sandstones often escape extensive hydrogeologic characterization due to their high primary porosity and perceived homogeneity of permeability. This study provides evidence for laterally extensive, high permeability zones in the Tunnel City Group, an undeformed, Cambrian-aged sandstone unit that exists in the subsurface throughout much of central and southern Wisconsin, USA. Several discrete high-permeability zones were identified in boreholes using flow logging and slug tests, and the i...
