GroundwaterU Video Summary

This video illustrates (via animation) how freshwater aquifers are present beneath the ocean floor, and how these offshore supplies can be tapped for agricultural use and urban water supply. It also illustrates how the use of offshore aquifers to enhance oil extraction can affect groundwater supplies onshore and potentially lead to land subsidence.
