Estimated concentrations of atrazine in shallow groundwater

This map shows estimated concentrations of atrazine in shallow groundwater beneath agricultural land. Atrazine use is one of the most important factors used to predict atrazine and deethylatrazine concentrations in groundwater (right). Within areas of high atrazine use, groundwater residence time, soil permeability, and other factors explain some of the differences in

Collecting geophysics data at Pinnacles National Park

Research Hydrologist Paul Hsieh collects seismic data during a groundwater study at Pinnacles National Park in California. The red seismometer on the ground measures ambient seismic noise, which includes microtremors induced by wind, ocean waves, and human activity. The seismic data collected can be used to estimate unconsolidated sediment thickness, map the bedrock
