Defining Base Of Protected Groundwater In The Southern San Joaquin Valley, Kern County, California Using Groundwater Chemical Analysis


Groundwater Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) concentrations in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) are unmapped at 10,000 parts per million (ppm). This research suggests that depositional environment and regularity of hydrologic recharge are vital elements in predicting the depth of the 10,000 ppm TDS zone.
