USGS Groundwater Info


I just checked my inbox and found a new message from the USGS News listerserv that discusses the transport of anthropogenic and natural contaminants through glacial aquifer systems.  The specific system that was studied was in Woodbury, Connecticut, but I think that many of findings would relate to the geology of the Finger Lakes.  Specifically, the article discusses groundwater vulnerability due to the rapid movement of water through stratified glacial deposits.  The entire study and contact information for the researchers may be found in PDF form at the following address:

IAGT Student Trip to Panama

Three students from Cayuga Community College recently spent 9 days in Panama learning about Climate Change.  We hope that they will bring back what they learned and apply it to the Finger Lakes area.  See the press release below:


IAGT/Cayuga Community College, Auburn, NY, January 2010:

The Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology (IAGT), in cooperation with the National Science Foundation and the Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and the Caribbean (CATHALAC) took a group of students on a nine day trip to Panama to study the affects of Climate Change in Latin America.

Project Background:

Amy Work and Nate Krause of IAGT chaperoned five students selected, two from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and three from Cayuga Community College to spend nine days in Panama City, Panama experiencing national parks, rainforests, and local attractions, as well as learning from local experts on the environmental and natural disaster issues facing Latin America.  Each student was required to formulate a question before the trip, and then research their question throughout the week using GIS and the knowledgebase at CATHALAC.  On the final day of their research, each gave a presentation of their findings and plans for future investigations.  Students were required to maintain blogs and photo albums to document their trip and post their presentations.
