    The hydrochemistry of small seasonal ponds was investigated by studying relations between ground-water and surface water in a forested Coastal Plain drainage basin. Observation of changes in the water table in a series of wells equipped with automatic water-level recorders showed that the relation between water-table configuration and basin topography changes seasonally, and particularly in.

39, Executive SummaryThe U.S. Geological Survey began a multiyear regional assessment of groundwater availability in the Northern Atlantic Coastal Plain (NACP) aquifer system in as part of its ongoing regional assessments of groundwater availability of the principal aquifers of the Nation.

The goals of this national assessment are to document. The Atlantic Coastal plains stretch from parts of Massachusetts and New York in the north to the Florida Keys in the south, covering more than 2, miles along the Atlantic Coast of North America and extending up to 62 miles inland.

Ocean sea levels affect this low-lying region, as well as the water table beneath the states that line the coast.

The seaward-dipping sedimentary wedge that underlies the Northern Atlantic Coastal Plain forms a complex groundwater system. This major source of water provides for public and domestic supply and serves as a vital source of freshwater for industrial and agricultural uses throughout the region.

Population increases and land-use and climate changes, however, have led to competing demands. The Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifers and confining units of North and South Carolina are composed of crystalline carbonate rocks, sand, clay, silt, and gravel and contain large volumes of high-quality groundwater.

The aquifers have a long history of use dating back to the earliest days of European settlement in the late s. Although extensive areas of some of the aquifers have or currently.

Coastal farms are found on fingers of land that extend into the Chesapeake Bay. In between the fingers are a vast network of salty tidal rivers.

The objectives of revitalizing and updating the NC-SC RASA models are to improve our understanding of the Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifer system flow paths and recharge; and to evaluate groundwater and surface-water interactions and the potential for reduction in both stream base flow and discharge to wetlands and estuaries as a result of increased groundwater withdrawals.

Abstract. A finite-difference computer model was used to analyze the effect of eustatic sea-level changes on the development of the transition zone between fresh ground water and underlying saltwater in the northern Atlantic Coastal Plain.

Other articles where Atlantic Coastal Plain is discussed: Tertiary Period: Sedimentary sequences: Tertiary sediments occur on the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains and extend around the margin of the Gulf of Mexico to the Yucatán Peninsula, a distance of more than 5, km (about 3, miles).

Seaward these deposits can be traced from the Atlantic Coastal Plain to the continental margin and. A transition zone between fresh ground water and underlying saltwater, 1, to 2, feet thick, underlies part of the northern Atlantic Coastal Plain and adjacent Continental Shelf.

This ecological system encompasses the intertidal marshes of the North Atlantic Coastal Plain from Chesapeake Bay north to Cape Cod, and sporadically to mid-coastal Maine.

It includes a number of different vegetation types, including salt marshes, salt shrublands, and isolated salt "pannes" where only the most salt-tolerant species can grow.

ABSTRACT This paper presents a summary of the geological and geophysical methods used and data obtained in eastern North Carolina during the petroleum exploration program () of Esso Standard Oil Company on the Atlantic Coastal Plain.

The Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifer system extends North-South along much of the Eastern portions of New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina (Figure 19).

It consists of a sequence of layered sedimentary aquifers (sands and gravels) separated by series of aquitards, all deposited starting around million years ago and. In Januarythe U.S.
