Predicting Ground Water Flow

After background reading on ground and surface water is complete, young hydrologists create a water table contour map. The map displays the elevation of surrounding areas and requires that the cartologists draw contour lines and arrows to indicate direction of water flow. Follow-up questions provide the opportunity to solidify the experience and new knowledge.
