A hydrologically consistent digital elevation model (DEM) was generated through interpolation of the primary elevation data, which involved contours and points extracted from Brazilian official charts at a scale of 1:50 000 (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics and Brazilian Geographic Services; IBGE 1974, 1979a, 19796, 1979c, 1983, 2008, 2013).

The main objectives of this research were: 1) test the usefulness of GPR for characterizing sediment-filled sinkholes in the Castile Formation; 2) interpretation of subsurface hydrologically active karst features; 3) characterization of sinkhole origins as either solutional or collapse features; and 4) evaluation of the sedimentary fills in karst features.

Douglas Lake and Carp Creek are connected hydrologically through the sand-gravel aquifer and much of the groundwater seepage most likely originates in the deep hole in South Fishtail Bay.
Streams are hydrologically very important for surrounding rivers of a hydrographic basin because they directly influence the recharge (Alekseevskii, Grinevskii, Efremov, Zalavskaya, & Grigoreva, 2003), provide habitats for benthic invertebrates that process thick and fine organic particulate (Vannote et al.
Conversely, a hydrologically correct grid of elevation can be produced using Hutchinson's algorithm, which takes into account information inherent to the contours and uses them to build a generalized drainage model.
