The NeDNR is developing a series of interactive water-based applications. Users can alter base streamflow by changing the variables tied to streamflow. Please click on the links below to load the applications.
In this application, you can explore some interactions between surface water and groundwater to answer the following questions:
- How do the relative positions of the water table and stream level affect the direction of flow and rate of interaction between the stream and the aquifer?
- How does precipitation affect streamflow?
- How does soil texture (that is, whether soil particles are coarse like sand or fine like clay) affect recharge and streamflow?
Concepts addressed in this application include water table elevation, gaining and losing streams, runoff, recharge, baseflow, soil texture, and hydrographs.
