Surficial mapping of groundwater flow systems with the application to the Oak River Basin, Manitoba
MetadataShow full item record
The concept of local topographic depressions serving as focal points for groundwater recharge and discharge is presented through the development of transient flow diagrams. By combining this concept with the hydrograph results of type piezometer nests in a prairie upland environment a hydroecological classification of sloughs is developed. This classification is applied to the reconnaissance mapping of flow systems in the Oak River Basin, Manitoba where the mapping is verified by test piezometer nests.
