Shale Gas Baseline Sampling of Groundwater in NC-- QA/QC

Melinda Chapman and Sharon Fitzgerald discuss the U.S. Geological Survey quality control and quality assurance for the USGS groundwater sampling program to characterize water-suppy well water quality in the area of North Carolina with potential for shale gas production. The sampling program is designed to provide a pre-devolpment baseline that can be compared with well-

Shale Baseline Sampling of Groundwater in North Carolina

Melinda Chapman and Sharon Fitzgerald discuss the U.S. Geological Survey groundwater sampling program to characterize water-suppy well water quality in the area of North Carolina with potential for shale gas production. The sampling program is designed to provide a pre-devolpment baseline that can be compared with well-water quality after shale gas development has occurred

Source and Use of Freshwater in North Carolina, 2010

This diagram uses a "cylinder and pipe" layout to show the source (surface water or groundwater) of the North Carolina's freshwater and for what purposes the water was used in 2010. The data are broken out for each category of use by surface water and groundwater as the source. The top row of cylinders represents where America's freshwater came from (source) in 2010,

Katharine Kolb: Activities Of A Geographer

Kitty Kolb, a geographer for the U.S. Geological Survey North Carolina Water Science Center, had a lot of fun last year working with the hydrologic benchmark monitoring team in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. During her day, Kitty worked to collect algae and aquatic insect larvae. The team counted the different species of fish found in the streams to help them
