ground·wa·ter

also ground water  (ground′wô′tər, -wŏt′ər)
n.
Water beneath the earth's surface, often between saturated soil and rock, that supplies wells and springs.

groundwater

(ˈɡraʊndˌwɔːtə)
n
(Physical Geography) underground water that has come mainly from the seepage of surface water and is held in pervious rocks

ground′wa`ter

or ground′ wa`ter,


n.
the water beneath the surface of the ground, the source of spring and well water.
[1885–90]

ground·wa·ter

(ground′wô′tər)
Water that flows or collects beneath the Earth's surface. Groundwater originates from rain and from melting snow and ice. It sinks into the ground, filling the small empty spaces in soil, sediment, and porous rocks. Aquifers, springs, and wells are supplied by the flow of groundwater.

VW piezometers are used to monitor pore-water pressure in the borehole.
Nevertheless, REEs can get incorporated directly from the seawater during early diagenesis, with little or no fractionation, and therefore have potential to reflect bottom and pore-water chemistry of a given palaeobasin (see Wright et al.
The lag of the phreatic line depends on factors such as: permeability of soils, drawdown rate, drawdown ratio and slope gradient during rapid drawdown, the stabilizing effect of the water on the upstream face is lost, but the pore-water pressures within the embankment may remain high.

Each plot also includes a subsurface drain that can be used to control groundwater in the near-streambank vadose zone, supplementing existing research at OSU on the role of pore-water pressures and groundwater processes on stream-bank erosion anci failure.
2007), and in the chemical composition of pore-water pigments and dissolved organic matter (Leeben et al.
1995) to analyse the net effect of these 2 disparate processes in terms of 'effective' coefficients of hydrodynamic dispersion and 'effective' retardation factors for a wide range of pore-water velocities, particle and column sizes, and density differences.
For example, much if not most, pore-water flow at very shallow depths is facilitated by tidal pumping in marine settings, giving way to compaction with increasing depth.
Seed and Booker (1977) approach for pore-water pressure generation and dissipation is applied, with some modifications for evaluating the densification effect of GPs, incorporating modifications in coefficients of volume change and permeability, to the analysis of columnar gravel drains under a variety of earthquake conditions.
