In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Such an effect has been enhanced by the extended, often illegal, overpumping of the deltaic aquifers.
- Irrigation is overwhelmingly the largest use of the water from each of these aquifers.
- These saline waters get pulled into local aquifers as wells and groundwater supplies are overdrawn.
- Chalk rivers are fed from groundwater aquifers, which produce clear waters and a generally stable flow and temperature regime.
- The movement of saline water into freshwater aquifers, or saltwater intrusion, is usually caused by ground water pumping from coastal wells.
- But the complex geology overlying the mountain aquifers continues to challenge researchers.
- The groundwater moved through the aquifer which was close to the Carrigower River, a designated Special Area of Conservation.
- Groundwater is found at varying depths underneath the earth's surface, in permeable rocks known as aquifers which are saturated by the infiltration of rainfall.
- Therefore, the results of a wet base or a dry base are the same if the upper part of the aquifer is frozen: it is not possible to transmit water from the glacier into the rock mass.
- Urbanization in turn leads to further adverse environmental effects, such as contamination of soils, surface water and aquifers through poor sanitation.
- If dry-based ice covered the area, the aquifer would have become inactive.
- Today water-resource managers must increasingly consider how withdrawals affect the amount of water flowing in and out of aquifers.
- A less pleasant possibility was that we had intercepted an aquifer.
- Because of the long residence times typical of most bodies of groundwater, contaminated aquifers are not readily restored by natural processes.
- The artificial recharge of aquifers could help to counter overexploitation of groundwater resources.
- There are over 100 surface pumps that remove water from aquifers, geologic units where water is stored between grains of sand or in rock fissures.
- Percolation pits dug along the lengths of the bunds would facilitate recharge of groundwater aquifers.
- The earth could not absorb the rainwater; as a result groundwater aquifers could not recharge.
- Likewise, most of the water supply for the town of Sonoyta, as well as the nearby border town of Lukeville, comes from the groundwater aquifer.
- Groundwater comes from an aquifer, an underground zone of saturated sand, gravel, or rock that yields significant quantities of water.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
