GROUNDWATER QUIZ BRAINPOP AIM: What happens to water when it infiltrates the ground?
Think about factors that will allow water to INFILTRATE
Vegetation Infiltration Vegetation Vegetated-Plants, Trees, Grass absorb water – high infiltration. Barren-No Vegetation, high runoff
Closure 1.Rainfall is most likely to infiltrate into soil that is 2.Draw the relationship between slope of the land and runoff 3.Flooding is likely to occur if the soil surface is Saturated, Paved, Impermeable, Steep As Slope increases Runoff Increases-Direct Flat, unsaturated, vegetated, large particles.
