The Ogallala Aquifer (oh-guh-LAH-luh) is a shallow water table aquifer surrounded by sand, silt, clay, and gravel located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximately , sq mi (, km 2) in portions of eight states (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). Water-level declines began in parts of the High Plains aquifer soon after the beginning of substantial irrigation with groundwater in the aquifer area (about ). This report presents water-level changes and change in recoverable water in storage in the High Plains aquifer from predevelopment (about ) to and from to Which is the best explanation for the changes in water level in the High Plains aquifer? Explain why you chose your answer. a) The distribution of present-day rainfall on land above the aquifer. b) Differences in the thickness of the rocks that make up the aquifer. This report presents water-level changes in the High Plains aquifer from the time before substantial groundwater irrigation development had occurred (about and termed “predevelopment” in.
The Ogallala Aquifer, or High Plains Aquifer, is a vast yet shallow aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world's largest aquifers, it lies under about , mi² (, km²) in portions of South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New. The volume of water in storage in the High Plains aquifer in is estimated at about billion acre-feet. Area-weighted, average water-level changes for the aquifer were declines of feet from to , feet from to , feet from to , and foot from to Authors: Brenda K. Densmore, Kris D. Lund, Virginia L.
