Tools for Groundwater Education

Groundwater plays an integral role in the hydrologic cycle but is difficult to see, and therefore often misunderstood or ignored. HydroFrame provides free tools and lesson plans to help students explore the way water moves in the subsurface and interacts with the surface. See below for current resources and stay tuned for additions!

DIGITAL SAND TANK MODEL

An online simulation tool that lets users interactively simulate and visualize groundwater movement through a virtual slice of the subsurface. Users can adjust groundwater levels, change subsurface properties, pump groundwater and add pollutants and watch the system respond in real time.
