Daily Objectives #16 (October 23, 2007)                                        Dr. Sanders

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

v Hydrogeologic Maps and Cross Sections
  • Find borehole data for a given area in Illinois, and use it to delineate flow system boundaries, identify hydrostratigraphic units, and construct hydrogeologic cross sections.

Today's Agenda:

v Hydrogeologic Maps and Cross Sections (Homework #4!)

By the end of the day today, you should have delineated the boundaries of the flow system, collected all the boring log data you need, identified the hydrostratigraphic units, and sketched out what you think the final cross section will look like.  You also may wish to get a start on the final drawing. 

Please cooperate with each other to collect data and analyze the problem; on Thursday, each person should hand in his or her own cross section.
