Hydrogeologic characterization of an alpine glacial till, Snowy Range, Wyoming
Characterization of sediment hydraulic properties is essential to understanding groundwater movement. In many mountain watersheds, surficial geologic material, such as glacial till, plays an important role in water and nutrient chemical cycling. Hydraulic properties of alpine glacial tills are infrequently measured, requiring efforts to characterize this complex geologic material. This research involved the use of multiple measurement techniques to determine the saturated hydraulic conductivity of surficial glacial tills at the Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (GLEES) in south-central ...
