Mapping
A study by hydrologist Inge de Graaf from the University of Freiburg in Germany in co-operation with the University of Victoria and other institutes, indicates that almost 20 per cent of the catchment areas where ground water is pumped suffer from a flow of streams and rivers that is too low to sustain their freshwater ecosystems.

SkyTEM has mapped 1,000,000 kilometres of the Earth – equivalent to almost 25 trips around the world – and collected and delivered more than one million kilometres of airborne electromagnetic data.
Vancouver – Geoscience BC has launched a new project to assess the potential amplification of ground movement associated with earthquakes generated by hydraulic fracturing and fluid injection in an area around Fort St. John and Dawson Creek in northeast British Columbia.
Sydney, Australia – Ground water exploration can be achieved at much lower cost and with less invasive procedures thanks to a new passive technique using existing Earth and atmospheric tidal data being championed by engineers in Australia. Phys.org reports. | READ MORE
Reston, VA – A recent update to an assessment of trends in ground water supply, including an easy-to-use interactive map, has been announced by the U.S. Geological Survey to help professionals identify emerging problems. Water Online reports. | READ MORE
Cambridge, MA – Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found that small water basins formed in humid climates are heavily shaped by the local ground water, which acts to carve out shorter, wider basins. MIT News reports. | READ MORE
Peace Region, B.C. – Geoscience BC has published the final report on a project that acquired, interpreted and shared new baseline scientific information about ground water resources in the Peace region of northeastern British Columbia.
Madison, WI – Supported by funding from the University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute, researchers are addressing the question of how much ground water is being used by trees — and how the changing levels of available ground water may be affecting the trees’ growth over time. University of Wisconsin-Madison News reports. | READ MORE
College Station, Texas – International water law thought leader Gabriel Eckstein has published a new book, “The International Law of Transboundary Groundwater Resources,” forthcoming this week, Texas A&M University School of Law reports. | READ MORE
Australia – A newly developed mobile application can come to the aid of experts looking to source data on ground water level and create awareness about the issue among farmers. Money Control reports. | READ MORE
California – Stanford Earth’s Rosemary Knight recently spearheaded a project to map underground freshwater resources and forecast the intrusion of saltwater into aquifers beneath the California coastal town of Marina.
Whereas oil, gas, uranium, and other metal and mineral reservoirs (including diamonds!) are understood in this country, ground water reservoirs are still not fully understood.
Peace River, B.C. – Geoscience BC is set to continue work this spring on its mapping of ground water resources throughout the Peace River valley. Information from these wells will be used to ground-proof results from previous aerial surveys. Alaska Highway News reports. | READ MORE
Breisgau, Germany – A team of international researchers led by a University of Freiburg hydrologist suggests the inclusion of currently missing key hydrological processes in large-scale climate change impact models can significantly improve our estimates of water availability. Innovations Report summarizes the study. | READ MORE
Dundurn, Sask. – A farmer and former professor and extension specialist at the University of Saskatchewan explores mapping of water table moisture and discusses such data resources as the historic Grey Books and current Water Security Agency in Moose Jaw. Grainews reports. | READ MORE
