The Story of Caves

The Story of Cave Development. How do caves and their decorations come into existence? Caves are formed and decorated by water - the tunnels, chambers, shafts and finely sculptured walls have all been carved out by flowing water. Stalactites, stalagmites, curtains, frozen waterfalls, rimstone dams and, the most remarkable all of cave formations - helictites have all be created by nothing more than water laden with minerals. This video explains how.

How Groundwater Moves in Southeast Minnesota [Part 1]

This realistic animation very effectively illustrates the nature and original of flow in karst terrain, including the dissolution process, flow along fractures, and disappearing streams, for example.

Fresh water under the ocean

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.

What is the Critical Zone?

This brief animation describes and provides a spatial perspective of the "Critical Zone", which is a relatively thin layer on the earth, extending from the tops of trees to groundwater. It is the interface where air/water/soil/rock meet to make life possible on earth.

Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) Project Overview

This video describes plans for an Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASP) test project in the Elmodel Wildlife Management Area in Georgia. ASP is a way of storing water in deep aquifers until they are needed during periods of drought. Multimedia include a map of ASR Projects in the U.S. and an animation of the ASP process, which consists of pumping water from the shallow Floridan Aquifer into the deeper Claiborne and Clayton Aquifers. During dry periods, groundwater will be pumped from these storage aquifers to supplement river flow.
