Geoscience Workshop: Analog Models of Groundwater Flow

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Learn how to use the sand tank groundwater model. Participate in a session that demonstrates of how this interactive tool shows how water and contaminants flow through different types of materials. You will see groundwater in action and we will discuss how this model could be used in your classroom.  Help build a shoe box model in this workshop that will let you model some big ideas in hydrogeology: groundwater comes from precipitation; groundwater flows through the pores between the grains (no underground streams or lakes); and, groundwater and surface water are connected. Take home a list of supplies and a lesson plan so that you can build your own model. Use our model of a karst landscape to see the results of fracture flow (and underground streams).
