Release of two new USGS reports

February 21, 2013

I’m happy to announce the release of two new USGS reports by hydrologists John Czarnecki and Tony Schrader.  John can be contacted at 501-228-3617 or jczarnec@usgs.gov.

Extremes in annual precipitation rates may lead to greater variability in groundwater recharge rates and water use, particularly in the agricultural areas in eastern Arkansas that rely heavily on groundwater produced from the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer. How does this variability affect the groundwater system and water use therein?  Are the effects of this variability discernible in measured water levels in wells? Two newly released U.S. Geological Survey publications address these questions and are available for web download.
