SURFACE WATER DEPTH
The map shows the distribution and iso-depth contours of surface water with the seasonal changes as well as flooded area by heavy rainfall. This can be used as a base to compare with existing maps of water bodies and to understand springs mechanism for field survey and so on.
SOIL MOISTURE CONTENT
The map shows the distributed moisture content of surface soil. It can be useful for understanding the condition of forest soil and floor vegetation, knowing appearance/disappearance of wetlands, surveying ecological environment, assessing drainage culvert in agricultural land, etc.
WATER / SOIL TEMPERATURE
The map shows the water temperature of surface and subsurface. This can be used to assess the water quality, impact of various human activities on ecosystem, impact of geothermal energy development, etc.
The figures show the hydraulic potential distribution of subsurface fluids. This can be depicted in each fluid phase such as water, gas and NAPLs. Movement of these fluid phases in geosphere takes place depending on the gradient of hydraulic potential. It is used to predict the impact on groundwater flow by tunnel excavations and land use changes.
The map shows the local and regional water flow paths both in surface and subsurface environments. It delineates the route of rainwater penetration at the mountains and discharge into rivers and sea. Streamline map is useful to understand the features of old river channels and springs as well as to visualize the locations where groundwater recharges.
DISCHARGE & RECHARGE AREA
The direction of groundwater flux indicates the distribution of discharge and recharge areas. The map shows the areas where the rain easily seeps or infiltrates into the ground and the groundwater tends to be recharged. It is used as basic information for the protection of water environment.
The groundwater elevation contours are shown on the map without separating them from surface water. This is a base map to comprehend hydraulic gradient and current direction of unconfined and confine groundwater flow.
It shows the 3D surface of iso-concentration contours of minerals in the liquid and gas phases. It depicts the coastal areas where seawater intrusion has been occurred and extended areas of detrimental substances which cause for groundwater/soil contamination.
Appealing 2D/3D animations can also be prepared that show simulation results in more understandable way.
