By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:

v Sketch a diagram illustrating the components of a well.

v Measure depth to water in a well, and total depth of the well.

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".)

v Explain what is expected in Homework #1, due at the beginning of our next class.
