Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation

Hydrograph 2

Groundwater-dependent growers should establish monitoring networks early in the water year to quantify saturated thickness before the growing season. A direct relation exists between the saturated thickness of an aquifer and the groundwater volume available for extraction constrained by regulation and/or principles of sustainability. Under natural conditions, the water table of an unconfined aquifer will… Read more »

How to Use the Wellntel Analytics Dashboard Change Feature

Wellntel Groundwater Change Chart

Quantifying temporal changes to groundwater levels in wells is a critical component of analyzing groundwater monitoring network information. Calculating water-level change over time may seem like a simple subtraction problem, but there are often important details, trends, and context that can be missed without appropriate tools for analysis and visualization. The Wellntel Analytics Dashboard includes… Read more »

The 2019 Texas Drought – Water-Levels Observed in Pumping Wells

In the late summer and early autumn of 2019, Texas experienced severe to extreme drought over portions of Central, Southern, and eastern West Texas Regions. That drought is captured in weekly map images provided by the United States Drought Monitor, through a partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the… Read more »
