Constraints from magnetotellurics on the geological structure across a seismic area associated with water wells in the Paraná basin, Brazil

Ícaro José Assis Kume, Mauricio de Souza Bologna, Marcelo Assumpção
2019 Brazilian Journal of Geology  
We present the results from a magnetotelluric profile of about 4 km-long that crosses a seismic zone near the town of Bebedouro, in the Northeastern part of the intra-cratonic Paraná basin, in Brazil.  ...  The seismic activity is thought to be caused by a raise in pore-pressure within a fractured basalt aquifer due to the natural injection of water from the shallow aquifer into the basalt.  ...  In addition to this shallow unconfined aquifer, intense groundwater exploitation also occurs in confined fractured aquifers between basalt flows.  ...

Sustainability of groundwater usage in northern China: dependence on palaeowaters and effects on water quality, quantity and ecosystem health

Matthew J. Currell, Dongmei Han, Zongyu Chen, Ian Cartwright
2012 Hydrological Processes  
Reservoir construction has reduced surface runoff in mountain-front areas that would naturally recharge regional Quaternary aquifers in many basins.  ...  In some basins, there is evidence that poor quality shallow water has leaked into deep layers (>200 m) via preferential flow, mixing with palaeowaters stored in semiconfined aquifers.  ...  Deep confined and semiconfined layers are probably recharged via horizontal flow in areas where these sediments grade into deep confined units away from the basin margins (e.g.  ...
