Agricultural irrigation leachate is often the largest source for aquifer recharge in semi-arid groundwater basins, but contamination from fertilizers and other agro-chemicals may degrade the quality of groundwater. Affected communities are frequently economically disadvantaged, and water supply alternatives may be too costly. This study aimed to demonstrate that, when addressing these issues Cited by: 7.

    The purpose of this chapter is to describe a number of techniques that can be used to evaluate runoff to obtain a better understanding and evaluation of ground-water resources. In particular, the following will be examined: 1. Ground-water runoff 2. Surface runoff 3. Regional ground-water recharge rates 4.

Flood forecasting 'Estimates of ground-water recharge rates for two small basins in central Nevada' -- subject(s): Hydrogeology.

Estimates of ground-water recharge rates developed from hydrologic modeling studies are presented for 3-Springs and East Stewart basins, two small basins (analog sites) located in central Nevada. The analog-site studies were conducted to aid in the estimation of recharge to the paleohydrologic regime associated with ground water in the vicinity.

Hydrologic implications of greater ground-water recharge to Las Vegas Valley, Nevada Article in JAWRA Journal of the American Water Resources Association 36(5) - June with 8 Reads. A spatially variable net infiltration model (INFIL ) was used to estimate the volume and spatial distribution of potential recharge to two basins: Red Light Draw and Eagle Flats.

The three rivers that drain the most water, from most to least, are the Amazon, Ganga, and Congo Rivers.[6] [edit]Endorheic drainage basins Endorheic basin in Central Asia Main article: Endorheic.

Szilagyi, Jozsef Zlotnik, Vitaly A. Gates, John B. and Jozsa, Janos Cited by: Estimating groundwater recharge in arid or semiarid regions can be a difficult and complex task, since it is dependent on a highly variable set of spatial and temporal hydrologic parameters and processes that are dependent on the local climate, the land surface properties, and subsurface characteristics.

As a result, traditional methods for estimating the recharge can result in a wide range of Cited by: 2. However, recharge rates are one of the most poorly constrained hydrological parameters in almost all groundwater flow and transport models (Lerner et al.,Anderson and Woessner, ), and the least understood, largely because recharge rates vary widely in space and time, and rates are difficult to measure directly (Healy, ).Cited by: ABSTRACT: To quantify and model the natural ground water recharge process, six sites located in the midwest and eastern United States where previous water balance observations had been made were compared to computerized techniques to estimate: (1) base flow and (2) ground water recharge.

Although most engineered MAR systems (e.g., infiltration basins, aquifer storage, and recovery) can achieve high recharge rates (>10 m per year) their small, localized footprint (few tens of square meters to a few hectares), high capital and maintenance cost along with requirements for creation and maintenance of conveyance and pumping systems Cited by: 1.

Vegetation and climates of the l years in the vicinity of the Nevada Test Site, south-central Nevada U. Abstract [1] Water levels in aquifers typically vary in response to time-varying rates of recharge, suggesting the possibility of inferring time-varying recharge rates on the basis of long-term water level records.

Presumably, in the southwestern United States (Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, southern California, and southern Utah), rates of mountain front recharge to alluvial aquifers depend on.

Year Published: Seasonality of nitrate sources and isotopic composition in the Upper Illinois River. To improve understanding of spatial, seasonal, and inter-annual variations in nitrate sources and in-stream processes in the Illinois River system, nitrate concentrations and isotopic compositions were measured in water samples collected over a four-year period (–) from the.

Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of.

For example, in the large depletion area of the Central Valley, California, the time period for depletion estimates made using a calibrated transient model (Faunt and others, b) overlapped with the GRACE gravity-based estimates (Famiglietti and others, ) for a few years; the values computed using the two methods varied from their mean.
