Slide 6

Alluvial residue in glaciated zones Glaciers propel, scour seds., alter waterway course. Sed comp. relies on upon area/source material. Substantial scope of grn size. Till=clay-rock underneath ice sheet. Ocean level drops as ice advances. Water powered inclination increment. Disintegration, speed, conveying limit increment. Valleys chiseled into bedrock, more seasoned frigid silt (cover prior channel stores) Glaciers retreat. Release increments. Disintegration. Plaited streams, extensive silt limit. Outwash plain (sands and rock). Lakes before subsiding ice sheets. Lacustrine=clay-residue (varved)

Slide 7

Alluvial silt in glaciated territories, Cont Sea level ascents, icy masses subside, water driven angle decreases, release reduces, conveying limit drops. Style changes from plaited to wandering. Lakes. Coarse-grn seds stored in etched valleys. Rock on base, fining upward. Thickness relies on upon conditions amid/taking after glaciation. Icy landforms Region changes with interglacial. Release diminishes. Dregs adjusted. Vital materials: Till, lacustrine, outwash, alluvial valley fill, diamicton, float. Complex facies conveyances

Water Balance Info given in GW Atlas ET=0.5 P 0.6Recharge is from uplands What is the aggregate baseflow flux to streams? Water Balance from Conceptual Model Recharge = Infiltration + Upland Runoff I=0.5P UR=0.6Re Re=0.5P+0.6Re Re=1.25P From guide, P = 40 inch/yr, so Re=50 in/yr

Water Balance Info given in GW Atlas P=43 in/yr, ET=23 in/yr (0.53), Ru=20in/yr (0.46) Also given: Recharge as penetration more than 16 mi2 aquifer represents 16.4 cfs, overland from uplands 11.2 cfs, from waterway 1.4 cfs. 29 cfs add up to Re to aquifer Area of aquifer = 16 mi2 Are these steady? Exhibit with water equalizations. Ru=Baseflow+Storm=Recharge+Storm Total Recharge=baseflow= 29 cfs: more than 16 mi2= 24 in/yr 20 in/yr= 24 in/yr+Stormflow, Negative stormflow?? Issue Watershed Balance: P+OU=ET+Ru not the same as above Aquifer: Infilt+OU+RiverLoss=Baseflow Infiltration = 16.4 cfs; change over to flux over aquifer: 14 in/yr Overland from Upland= 11.2 cfs; 9 in/yr Total Recharge=baseflow= 29 cfs: 24 in/yr Ru=P+OU-ET=43+9-23=29 in/yr not the same as above Ru=Base+Storm, So, stormflow must be 5 in/yr; as a rule, the water flux values appear to be conflicting. Continuously make certain your water parities can be shut.
