How does the rate of groundwater flow compare with that of moving ocean water or river currents?
Groundwater flow is very slow compared to currents in surface water, generally moving at less then one and one-half meters per day. ...
What is one of the negative consequences of dumping waste in landfills?
It can pollute the groundwater.
Asked in Music Theory
Why are orchestral shells shaped like a dome?
Because of acoustics-- when a sound hits a flat surface, it bounces off. If that surface is curved one direction, sound will travel that direction. If sound resonates to a dome surface bent outward to the audience, naturally the sound will move the direction that the dome is facing when the sound bounces off of the surface. <3 Luv Clo ...

Asked in Earth Sciences, Water Cycle
What is the hydrologic water cycle?
The hydrologic cycle begins with the evaporation of water from the surface of the ocean. As moist air is lifted, it cools and water vapor condenses to form clouds. Moisture is transported around the globe until it returns to the surface as precipitation. Once the water reaches the ground, one of two processes may occur; 1) some of the water may evaporate back into the atmosphere or 2) the water may penetrate the surface and become groundwater. Groundwater either seeps its way...

Asked in Animal Life, Insects
Why does a pond skater insect not sink?
A pond skater insect is held up by surface tension. Water molecules have an attraction for each other. At the surface of the liquid there is no water in one direction (up, naturally) so the molecules at the surface are pulled with a net force downwards. This creates a surface layer which has a high viscous property (know as surface tension). To penetrate this layer requires a measurable force. Since the weight of a pond skater does not exceed this force it...
Asked in Lakes and Rivers
How does groundwater move from one place to another?
it moves because rigo said so Groundwater is not "held" in one place underground--it flows through the aquifer. Groundwater is transported through aquifers because of two main reasons: gravity and pressure. In unconfined aquifers, which we concentrate on because they are more likely to be contaminated, water always flows from high points to low points because of gravity. ...
