Ground Water Modeling ...not for the weak heart

Okay so this is a class at Iowa State in the Geology Program. It was a 400 or 500 level class depending on if you were a graduate student. Anyhow Bill Simpkins taught the class very well and even though there was only 11 or so of us, I had a great time....anyhow here is a snippet from his class.

Hydrology is the study of the groundwater. Well mostly anyhow...geology of the groundwater is about how water gets out of the ocean and into an aquifer. Water moves through the groound much like how electricity moves through any sort of medium. Ohms law governs electricity....Darcys law governs water moving in the saturated zone.  Q = -KIA is the secret equation.
