v Describe the variables that influence water level in a well and its response to pumping.

v Perform calculations with and convert between different units of hydrologic measurement for length, area, volume, velocity, volumetric flow rate (discharge), and temperature.

v Determine
the number of significant
figures appropriate in a quantitative estimation. (Visit
these
websites for a good
summary and a pretty
good summary of the rules for counting and calculating with "sig
figs".)
