7 Lessons in Chapter 31: Physical Science - Ground Water: Homework Help
Groundwater System: Definition & Geological Role

1. Groundwater System: Definition & Geological Role

Surprisingly, most of Earth's liquid freshwater is not where you might think! In this video lesson, you will learn about groundwater, as well as the important roles it plays in sustaining life and shaping Earth.

Factors that Influence Groundwater Movement

2. Factors that Influence Groundwater Movement

The movement of groundwater underneath us is influenced by several factors. In this video lesson, you will learn what these factors are and how they affect how and where groundwater moves.

Springs: Definition, Formation & Types

3. Springs: Definition, Formation & Types

In this video lesson, you will learn about springs and how they form. You will also understand how springs are classified based on how they flow as well as how strongly they flow.

Wells: Definition & Types

4. Wells: Definition & Types

Wells are used all over the world and are an important source of water for many people. In this video lesson you will identify different types of wells, as well understand their underground source of water.

Environmental Problems Associated With Groundwater

5. Environmental Problems Associated With Groundwater

Groundwater is an important natural resource, but like many of our other resources, it's affected by the surrounding environment and human activities. In this video lesson, you'll learn about some of the environmental problems associated with groundwater and why groundwater is especially vulnerable to them.

Caverns & Sinkholes: Definition, Formation & Effects

6. Caverns & Sinkholes: Definition, Formation & Effects

Groundwater can have dramatic effects on Earth's landscape, both above and below ground. In this video lesson you will learn about caverns and sinkholes, both of which are directly related to groundwater movement.

Porosity: Definition, Equation, Calculation & Measurement

7. Porosity: Definition, Equation, Calculation & Measurement

In this lesson, we will talk about porosity, a term that geologists use to describe how much empty space is inside a rock. We'll also look at the specific calculations used to figure porosity, which is usually given as a percentage.
