Why are floods especially common in the spring?
More water is added to a river as groundwater seeps upward.
Winds are more common, causing more movement of water.
Warmer temperatures increase the volume of water in a river.
The still-frozen ground is unable to soak up the water from melting snow.
How does solution activity make limestone rocks permeable for groundwater flow?
cuts down on the number of open pores
makes the pore spaces less connected
fills in many of the limestone’s cracks
gives the limestone numerous pits and holes
Groundwater recharge is the water
that enters a groundwater system by infiltrating the ground
leaves a groundwater system at a natural spring
seeps from the ground into a lake
moves through the pore spaces of rocks
I’ll keep posting the questions.
