Homework #1 is due at the beginning of class today.
Lab #1 is due at the beginning of class today.
If you have not yet responded to the e-mail message I sent last week, please do so before leaving today. (If you didn't get it, let me know asap!)
|Thought questions: What did it mean? What is a flow system? What are boundaries to flow? Is flow constant? Is it the same everywhere? Why? Why not?|
to do: Sketch a diagram of the flow system in last week's ground
water model, including the following features:
Boundaries of the flow system
Flow directions (show with arrows)
|Thought questions: What did it all mean? Why did water level change? Why didn't it change faster/slower? How can we quantify this?|
Compare the graphs from each group. (For example, do they show
the same thing
happening, and at the same rate? How are they the same? How
In your original group, you made a list of variables that might affect the relationship between pumping and water level in the well. In your new group, compare lists and compile a longer list. Take that list and quanitify all those that you can for the tests that we done on Wells #1, #2, and #3. For example, if you wrote, "Depth of the well" as a variable, then collect data on the depths of each of the three wells. Do this for each of the variables, and see if you can explain the differences by using this data.
Propose a test that would allow you to quantify the relationship between pumping and water level in the well. You did this in your original group; now in your new group, compare your answers and resolve them.
