Seyed Mahmood VaeziNejad, et al., report that drought and groundwater withdrawal in recent years has caused numerous problems such as subsidence due to falling of subsurface water table, the reduction of water quality, etc. in cities across the world. This research is a case study that deals with harmful effects of subsurface water withdrawal in the city of Kerman and with the practical monitoring of the subsidence that makes the prediction of land subsidence possible.

The artificial neural network has been used for modeling the monitored results and prediction of future subsidence... More →

Yamaha has announced the inaugural commercial operation of its RMAX remotely piloted helicopter for agriculture spraying service in the U.S. The RMAX flight was completed in California for Napa-based Silverado Farming Company, a vineyard management company. During its debut the RMAX applied a fungicide for preventative control of powdery mildew, one of the most common fungal diseases affecting grapes and many other crops.

For Yamaha, the U.S. debut of RMAX commercial services for the agricultural industry marks the culmination of several years working with the FAA to receive appropr... More →

Michael R. Shultz blogs that outcropping ancient river deposits illustrates the primary challenge to successful groundwater remediation ... stratigraphic heterogeneity. Encountering heterogeneity in the form of stratigraphic layering is common at every groundwater remediation site where sedimentary aquifers are impacted.

Unfortunately, so too is the common practice of layer labeling and counting in which it is assumed that the first sand encountered when drilling (i.e., the A sand), is a homogeneous, isotropic layer, followed by the next layer, etc. This almost never the case, a... More →

WelNet monitors changes in groundwater systems that are caused by pumping, agricultural methods, and local precipitation. The impact of pumping and agriculture is accelerating and pressure on the groundwater resource is intensifying. Hydrogeologists need data to confirm these changes, and make recommendations to adapt to them. While some exciting new information sources, like NASA GRACE satellite program, have become available, data resolution, and therefore local response, remains low.

In groundwater models, the software estimates that groundwater decision-makers rely on, but they ... More →

More than 44 million Americans depend on a private well for their water. Drought conditions and overuse have caused ground water levels to drop all over the country. If a homeowner has a well that is not deep enough, they may have to drill a deeper one or find water elsewhere, an expensive and troubling proposition.

The Journal Nature recently reported that globally, groundwater sources are stressed at 3.5 times their capacity to produce, and the New York Times reported that wells are running dry around the U.S. Midwest. Meanwhile, most people with wells have no idea if the water in... More →

Nearly 7,200 hectares of land in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam is sinking rapidly, with experts blaming it on the depletion of groundwater and massive construction. A report from the City Department of Natural Resources and Environment Thursday said around 20 areas in the city are sinking fast by an average of 15 millimeters in 2015, with one area going down by as much as 28 mm.

Forty other areas sank by 5-10 mm last year. The affected areas are Districts 7, 8, 12, Binh Tan, Binh Chanh, Hoc Mon and Nha Be, with the southern and southwestern areas the worst hit. Districts 8, 12 and Bin... More →

LogitEasy created the USCS Calculator for professional geologists who need to classify soil according to the ASTM Visual-Manual Procedure (ASTM-D2488) and record only the percentage of gravel, sand, and fines in the field, without the soil group name and symbol.

The USCS Calculator allows the geologist to determine the soil group name and symbol from your field data, for use in soil descriptions when preparing boring and test pit logs. Geology students and young professional geologists are welcome to use the USCS Calculator for learning the first part of this soil classification pr... More →

Celine Lim reports that Canadian hydrogeologist Dr. John Cherry credits his stellar career in groundwater research, protection and management to a series of fortuitous incidents in his early years as a professional. The Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize laureate shares his journey with Eco-Business.

It was 1967, Prof. John Cherry had just joined the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, as the first groundwater professor in Canada when he was accosted by a young woman, the only female in the entire engineering department. The American student, Barbara Lund, explained that, after spend... More →

Michael J. Schnieders reports that although initial legislation took place much earlier, the total coliform rule (TCR) of 2001 created quite a bit of stress for the groundwater industry. The TCR contained a significant expansion of microbial testing of wells and public water supplies. Beginning April 1, 2016, and earlier in some states, revisions to the TCR begin to take effect. Are you and your customers prepared?

The new revisions reflect a better understanding of coliform occurrence as well as the total coliform and fecal coliform tests. Although often misunderstood in the past, ... More →
