The Guarani Project Documentary The Guarani Project - The Guarani Project's Kickstarter Campaign - The Guarani Project is a journalist, a filmmaker and a photographer from three different backgrounds and countries coming together to document an issue that is both current and pressing in the twenty-first century: Sustainability. Under the fertile South American low lands of Argentina, Southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, lies the Guarani Aquifer. The Guarani aquifer holds enough water to supply the worlds population with 100 liters of water a day, every day for 200 years. As a self-sustaining body of water it will never deplete; an aquifer recharges its water supply by absorbing rainwater and water leaked from lakes, rivers and reservoirs. The Guarani Aquifer has a recharge rate of between 165 to 170 kilometers cubed per year, which is the equivalent of over 67 million Olympic sized swimming pools flowing into the aquifer each year. The Guarani Aquifer sounds like the answer to the worlds water problem, but if the Guarani Aquifer is not appropriately monitored, agricultural and industrial use of the aquifers water could destroy this natural resource. The Guarani Project is a documentary about the challenges facing the Guarani Aquifer, and the indigenous people who depend on it. Disclaimer - We know this video contains footage from Indonesia; it's from a previous project. As we haven't yet started the Guarani project's filming we don't have footage of the ...

Introduction on a theme: Humans As Aquifers - CEMI - Denton Music, film, narration: Jessica Leza piano: Scott Marosek For those times in which we exist simply to move water from place to place. "Dehydration is the loss of water and important blood salts such as potassium and sodium. The kidneys, brain, and heart cannot function without a minimum of water and salt. Signs of Dehydration begin with thirst, dry mouth, cracked lips, and progress with the development of sunken eyes, a rapid but weak pulse, cold hands and feet, blue lips, rapid breathing, confusion, and lethargy. Untreated severe dehydration may result in seizures, permanent brain damage, or death. Thank you for coming tonight. Please turn off any cell phones, pagers, or electrical devices."

The Hydrologic Cycle In this film, we travel throughout the campus of Boston University asking various people a few questions about science. We ask them if they know anything about the hydrologic cycle as well as if they know what an aquifer is. We found out that barely anyone knew the proper information. The hydrologic cycle simply summarizes the many routes that water molecules take as they move through the environment. It plays a huge role in other biogeochemical cycles, mainly due to the fact that water is the most essential natural resource in life. An aquifer is a spongelike region of rock and soil that holds groundwater. The upperlimit is known as the water table. Aquifers hold groundwater for long periods of time, thus making some water ancient. The largest aquifer in North America is known as the Oglalla Aquifer. This aquifer creates a rich agricultural area that is very useful in irrigating crops. We thank you for your interest in the film, enjoy. - John MacKinnon, Drew Popper, Pat Gent

From the Earth and Back Again: Alberta Saline Aquifer Project The Alberta Saline Aquifer Project (ASAP) is an industry initiative being led by Enbridge Inc. to identify deep saline aquifers in Alberta that could be used in a carbon sequestration pilot project. ASAP is a true collaborative effort and 38 organizations have participated in the project's first phase. Saline aquifers are deep underground formations that contain brine or salt water that is not suitable for drinking or agricultural purposes. Once suitable aquifers have been identified, they can be injected with carbon dioxide - and then carefully monitored to ensure that their integrity remains intact. For more information on ASAP, please visit
Shallow aquifers and open wells - Ecological sustainability challenge Open wells have provided fresh water for drinking throughout centuries. Any activity which decreases quantity and quality is immediately reflected in the open well. The water levels drop or they have bacteria,iron,nitrates depending on how humans behave with the catchments, the recharge zones and the groundwater exploitation. Wells are indicators as much as providers of water. Understanding and embedding in modern water and landuse demand situations will be a challenge.
What's in Your Burger? Humans impact the environment in many negative ways. One such way is using up our available natural resources, such as water from aquifers, by taking from those resources at a faster rate than they can replenish themselves. The Oglala Aquifer is the largest source of water used for agriculture in North America. It is located in the Great Plains and once it was discovered, the Great Plains became an enormous agricultural center. We now use the Oglala Aquifer extensively to irrigate crops, but at the rate at which we are using the water the aquifer is in danger of eventually drying up.

By Cynthia Barnett and Mike Vogel Florida Trend, March 2001 or www.law.miami.edu --- The Water Issue: Restoration Dreams Without a Paddle Journey with us through the watery heart of the largest subtropical wetlands in America: the Everglades. Why? Because it's there—or used to be. By W. Hodding Carter Outside Magazine, August 2003 (Excerpt from page 4) Instead of dumping all that water into the ocean, the Corps and the SFWMD have a cunning plan to pump it into South Florida's aquifer. Their method? A series of aquifer-storage-and-recovery (ASR) systems, 330 to be exact, that are being incorporated into the existing matrix of water-control structures. Basically, up to 1.6 billion gallons a day will be pumped 1100 feet underground, where, theoretically, it will push aside the naturally brackish water, forming a kind of freshwater bubble that will simply hang out until it's "recovered" for agricultural use, drinking water, and recharging the Everglades. Sounds great, except that no one's quite sure if it's going to work. The National Research Council, a federally funded consortium of ...
BACOG Aquifer Materials Video This is a video from the BACOG Water Resources Initiative that visualizes the configuration and extent of aquifer materials in the Barrington Area. Shallow aquifer materials are the water bearing units from which most of wells in the Barrington Area draw their daily-use water. These aquifers lay within several hundred feet of the ground surface.

Or get tweeted by NASA: One of the biggest changes to global agriculture is less about the food itself as it is about the water we use to grow it. In some areas, farmers are using freshwater resources - including groundwater - at an alarming rate. The GRACE satellites enable scientists to discover changes to underground aquifers by monitoring changes in the Earth's gravity. In northern India, farmers rely heavily on irrigation to grow crops, and the resulting massive aquifer depletion creates an uncertain future for the region.

Amazing Aquifer Haliburton-Muskoka Children's Water Festival - this activity center is part of the Water Protection theme and uses a model of an aquifer, which is any soil through which groundwater moves easily. The model illustrates the subsurface (sand, gravel and bedrock aquifers and aquitards) and its relation to the surface water (lakes and rivers). A pump can be used to change the amount of precipitation in the system. Water moves continuously through the model from higher to lower elevation (due to gravity). There are several wells to demonstrate the effect of pumping on an aquifer.

Real-time Monitoring of Managed Aquifer Recharge Andrew Fisher [Prof. of Earth & Planetary Sciences, UC Santa Cruz] Abstract: California is highly dependent on groundwater to satisfy fresh water demands, but supplies are increasingly stressed and groundwater in many basins is overdrafted, leading to resource degradation and loss of storage. Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) is strategy by which excess surface water is infiltrated into the ground in natural or engineered structures, often as part of a broader effort to conjunctively manage and enhance linked surface water and groundwater resources. Running MAR systems requires information on infiltration rates, groundwater levels, and water quality; having access to this information in real time can be helpful in operating MAR systems more efficiently and effectively. In addition, establishing new MAR projects often requires the approval from a variety of resource stakeholders, many of whom find groundwater mechanics and management to be cryptic. Real time access to MAR data may help to engage the public and encourage a commitment to water resource improvement. We present data from an ongoing study of an operating MAR system in central coastal California. A CITRIS seed grant was used to augment this research project by supporting environmental instrumentation and networking, so that field data can be acquired in real time and inform research and MAR activities. We will show examples of field data collected as part of the overall MAR research effort, and preliminary data ...

Floridas Aquifer: The Treasure Below Explains how Florida's aquifer system formed.
Recharging aquifers. India has over 22 million bore-wells and its dependancy on groundwater is estimated at 65% of total water demand. Borewells are running deep and running dry. Artificial recharge through rainwater harvesting is one approach to top up bore-well waters alongwith demand management. Rooftop rainwater harvesting, filtering the rainwater and then recharging it directly into the borewell is one approach. This experiment tries to understand how much rainwater can be directly fed into the bore-well during rains. Looks like a lot...
