New Web Site Offers Synopsis of Ground Water in Colorado

Since its publication by the Colorado Geological Survey, the Ground Water Atlas of Colorado has received tremendous recognition and acclaim by professional organizations, water managers, educators, politicians, and the public. Most recently, authors Ralf Topper, Karen L. Spray, William H. Bellis, Judith L. Hamilton, and Peter E. Barkmann received the Geological Society of America's 2005 E. B. Burwell, Jr. Award from its Engineering Geology Division, recognizing this distinguished contribution to the sciences.

The Colorado Geological Survey has now developed a Web site that features a synopsis of the atlas. Like the original publication, the Web site contains introductory chapters on the state's ground water resource, as well as specific discussions on each of the state's major aquifers. In addition, the Web site contains the complete glossary, and allows viewers to download high-resolution graphic files.

A synopsis of the Ground Water Atlas of Colorado can be viewed at http://geosurvey.state.co.us/wateratlas/.
