Groundwater

Surface water weathers rocks and minerals. The flowing water erodes the sediments and deposites them in a new place.Atmospheric contamination can impact surface water as well as groundwater. The contamination is caused from industrial plants and vehicle emissions. The acidic conditions develop in surface water and can lead to the destruction of ecosystems.

Groundwater can cause erosion under the surface. As water flows through the soil, acid is formed. The acid can cause minerals to dissolve. This is chemical weathering. Minerals that are carried in grundwater can be deposited into new places. Surface water weathers rocks and minerals. The flowing water erodes the sediments and deposites them in a new place. Humans can affect groundwater in many ways. The density of a population can affect the quality and quantity if groundwater. The density of a subdivision not connected to a sewer system can impact grounwater with nitrogen from septic systems.

Groundwater-water held underground in the soil or in pores and crevices of rocksSurface Water-Water on the surface of the planet sunch as a stream, river, lake, ocean, etc...Aquifer-a geological formation containing groundwater such as a caveWatershed-a ridge or crest line dividing two drainage areas such as a river or lake

Aquifers can increase water quantity over time and weather and erode soil underground. Then it deposits the sediments.Humans can impact aquifers by cleaning them and by contaminating them with chemicals wear away rock.

Aquifer

Watersheds can erode and weather land as well as move sediments by the flow of water. By letting spills of toxic chemicals go into our watersheds, through our surface water, and to our groundwater in aquifers, our ecosystems will suffer. Humans can se natural systems to limit pesticide and fertilizer use. We can prevent over fertilization that contamites rivers and lakes.
