Dr . Hampton describes this presentation as Local Aquifers 101 and says that “Although greater than 70 percent of Earth is covered by water , only about 1 percent is available for human use in the form of fresh surface water and subsurface groundwater . ”
This talk will explore fresh water as one of our most important resources and provide a context for understanding groundwater in the overall water cycle . Additionally , we will investigate some of the key aquifers in the southwestern U . S . including our own aquifer system in the Mesilla Valley .
