Water-resources potential of the freshwater lens at Key West, Florida

The island of Key West lies at the end of the Florida Keys, about 150 miles southwest of Miami. The public-water supply for the island is provided by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Well Field near Miami. However, there are many privately owned wells on the island that tap the local fresh ground-water lens for potable and nonpotable water...

Laboratory simulation of the effects of overburden stress on the specific storage of shallow artesian aquifers

A laboratory experiment to measure the specific storage of an aquifer material was conducted. A known dead load, simulating an overburden load, was applied to a sample of completely saturated aquifer material contained inside a cylinder. After the dead load was applied, water was withdrawn from the sample, causing the hydrostatic pressure to...

Development of an aquifer management model AQMAN3D

A computer code that enables the use of the USGS Modular groundwater flow model for aquifermanagement modeling has been developed. Aquifermanagement techniques integrate groundwater flow modeling with linear quadratic optimization methods for the solution of various aquifer management problems. The...

Landslide processes in saprolitic soils of a tropical rain forest, Puerto Rico

Shallow soil slips, earth and debris slides appear to be a primary mechanism of hillslope denudation in the rainforest of eastern Puerto Rico. Annual rainfall in excess of 4,000 mm, and thick sequences (up to 20 m) of residual soils (saprolite) combine to produce these landslides. Shear strength testing and observatons of tension cracks indicate...

Rainfall-soil moisture relations in landslide-prone areas of a tropical rain forest, Puerto Rico

Soil moisture conditions are not well documented in steep, tropical landslide-prone terrain. In the 11,330 ha Caribbean National Forest (CNF) in northeastern Puerto Rico more than 170 landslides that occurred from one to approximately 60 years ago have been mapped. Most of these landslides are shallow, with failure depths of 0.5 ot 7 m, and are...

The role of soil processes in determining mechanisms of slope failure and hillslope development in a humid-tropical forest eastern Puerto Rico

Translational failures, with associated downslope earthflow components and shallow slides, appear to be the primary mechanism of hillslope denudation in the humid tropical forests of the mountains of eastern Puerto Rico. In-situ weathering of quartz diorite and marine-deposited volcaniclastics produces residual soil (saprolite; up to 21 m deep) /...
