Advancing Groundwater Technology
The Groundwater Technology Consortium evolved from a common desire between groundwater managers and Stanford researchers to broaden the array and quality of tools available to groundwater managers to promote more sustainable groundwater management. This project addresses key management questions facing groundwater managers throughout the Western United States and Australia by applying new and emerging technologies to improve understanding of what is happening below the land surface. These technologies include nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) logging, long-offset electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR). Stanford researchers work closely with groundwater managers to enhance understanding of and access to these new and emerging geophysical technologies.
