    The Pettyjohn et al. aquifer classification scheme can be found in EPA Report //, “Regional Assessment to Aquifer Vulnerability and Sensitivity in the Conterminous United States,” August Under this classification scheme, aquifers are ranked as Class I (a-d), II (a-c), III, or U. Class I aquifers are surficial or shallow, are permeable, and are highly vulnerable to contamination. Florida Aquifer Vulnerability Assessment (FAVA): Purpose: To predict the intrinsic relative vulnerability of Florida’s aquifer systems (FAS, SAS & IAS) to contamination from land surface Objective: To provide a scientifically defensible water-resource management and protection tool that will facilitate planning of.

Washington, D.C.: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development, (OCoLC) That is, aquifers that have a high degree of vulnerability and are in areas of high population density are considered to be the most sensi- tive.

About 46 percent of the land area of the conterminous United States con- sists of vulnerable Class I aquifers. Aquifer sensitivity is related to the potential for contamination.

A square-mile region within Will County, in northeastern Illinois, was used as a test region for the development of a methodology to map the sensitivity of aquifers to contamination. An aquifer sensitivity model was developed using a geographic information system (GIS) to overlay and combine several data by: 2.

assessment could include an entire aquifer, a portion of an aquifer system, or end at the wellhead. Other rel-evant definitions are more specific and have separated aquifer characteristics from the broader case of aquifer or water-supply vulnerability to specific contaminants.

In this sense, “aquifer sensitivity” or “intrinsic suscepti-File Size: 2MB. For the assessment of impact of individual parameters towards aquifer vulnerability, the single parameter sensitivity analysis is performed.

The statistical summary of single parameter sensitivity analysis is shown in TableCited by: 7. Logistic regression is an improvement over earlier aquifer vulnerability studies involving geographic information systems (GIS).

Prior researchers (25) used GIS overlays to estimate the likelihood of nitrate contamination of shallow groundwater in the United States, with statistical verification of resulting risk groups.

In ranking and overlay. National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi occupies an area of km 2 which lies between 28°24′15″ and 28°53′00″ N latitudes and 76°50′24″ and 77°20′30″ E longitudes ().Administratively, it is divided into nine districts. This region is the part of Gangetic alluvial plain, and has an elevation ranging from to m above mean sea by: 2.

Introduction. Water is widely regarded as an essential natural resource (Vörösmarty et al., ) and a necessary resource for nearly all human activities ().It can be viewed as a resource for domestic use, as an input for agricultural and industrial uses, a sustainer of ecosystems, as well as a hazard in the form of floods and drought (Brown et al., ).Cited by: 7.

The procedure to imple­ ment the map removal and the single-parameter sensitivity analysis is described in this contribution and is tested in a part of the Piana Campana, southern Italy, where the aquifer vulnerability was assessed.
