Description:

Students are presented with a working geological model of the subsurface. This includes permeable and impermeable horizons, a simulated lake/river, and a number of wells. In the demonstration phase of the activity dyed water is injected at various points in the model. Students are asked to predict where this dye will travel. Examples are given of various real world scenarios, ranging from groundwater flow from a septic tank to the disposal of hazardous pollutants down a deep well. Students are then invited to experiment with the model in groups.
