Hydrogeology 101: Introduction to Groundwater Flow
19:44
There are two main things which control groundwater flow. These are the hydraulic gradient and the permeability of the subsurface. We will look at both of these terms and then see how they work together in Darcy’s Law. Finally, we will look at some practical applications of Darcy’s Law. Link to pdf notes: https://bit.ly/3e86loF
