Geochemistry of ground water in the Gulf Coast Aquifer systems, south-central United States Water-Resources Investigations Report By: R.A. Pettijohn. The gulf coast aquifer systems of the south-central United States were divided into 10 model layers for regional analysis of ground-water flow.

Detailed estimates of fresh ground-water pumpage were made for each layer underlying each square-mile area of the model by: 3. The Gulf Coast regional aquifer systems constitute one of the largest, most complicated, and most interdependent aquifer systems in the United States.

South-central United States book flow in a ,square-mile area of the south-central United States was modeled for the effect of withdrawing freshwater at the rate of nearly 10 billion gallons per day in from regional aquifers in the Mississippi Embayment, the Texas coastal uplands.

Some of the world's most productive aquifers such as the Edwards aquifer in Texas and the Floridan and Biscayne aquifers in Florida are found in carbonate rocks (White, ).Karst aquifers are often characterized as having high vertical permeabilities due to vertical conduits and sinkholes that allow for a rapid recharge of the groundwater (Hess et al., ; Ford and Williams, ).

Ground water is an important source of drinking water throughout much of the Coastal Plain of the Eastern United States.

In North Carolina south-central United States book, most coastal plain counties rely on ground water to meet more than 70% of their water-supply needs (Walters, ).Ground water also provides more than 50% of the annual stream flow in coastal plain streams in the ALBE drainage basin (McMahon and Lloyd Cited by:   Understanding groundwater salinity sources in the Gulf Coast Aquifer System (GCAS) is a critical issue due to depletion of fresh groundwater and concerns for potential seawater intrusion.

The study objective was to assess sources of groundwater salinity in the GCAS using ∼1, chemical analyses and ∼90 isotopic analyses along nine well transects in the Texas Gulf Coast, by: 5. Water-chemistry data from the original records for the gulf coast aquifer systems and files of processed data have been stored on computer tape.

Principal component analysis has been applied for source identification and to assess factors affecting concentration variations. In particular, this study utilizes principal component analysis (PCA) to understand groundwater geochemical characteristics in the central and southern portions of the Gulf Coast aquifer in Texas.

There is potential for further development of ground-water supplies in the Gulf Coastal Plain because of the abundance of water in streams, lakes, and swamps and the generally good hydraulic connection between the water table and underlying water-yielding units. The most favorable conditions for further development of ground-water supplies are generally in the upper permeable zones and.

As part of the National Water Quality Program (NWQP), groundwater quality is being characterized in 20 of the Nation's 68 Principal Aquifers. These 20 aquifers supply most of the groundwater used in the United States—they account for more than three-quarters of the groundwater pumped for public supply and 85 percent of the groundwater pumped for domestic supply.

The Gulf Coast Aquifer is a coastal aquifer stretching all along the Gulf Coast, from Florida through Texas and into Mexico. It lies below the southern portions of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, along with over half the states of Louisiana and Florida. The Gulf Coast Aquifer is over miles wide in.

Groundwater chemistry and tracer-based age data were used to assess contaminant movement and geochemical processes in the middle Claiborne aquifer (MCA) of the Mississippi embayment aquifer system.

A conceptual model of the hydrogeologic framework, geochemistry, and groundwater-flow system of the Edwards-Trinity and related aquifers, which include the Pecos Valley, Igneous, Dockum, Rustler, and Capitan Reef aquifers, was developed as the second phase of a groundwater availability study in the Pecos County region in west Texas.
