Helping Desert Communities Find Hidden Water

'Helping Desert Communities Find Hidden Water' is an excellent vignette of the Santa Cruz River valley by the US Geological Survey. Among the illustrations is a video profiling USGS' 3D geologic model. The animation shows the distribution of shallow and deep aquifers and the contact between between basin sediment and bedrock.

And with regard to the benefits of this sort of integrated 3D modeling approach, “[Page’s] work confirmed our unexpected results that there are deep aquifers beneath the shallow ones in the microbasins,” Nelson commented. “The ADWR will use the results of the new USGS studies to create more effective water management strategies.”
