He lost his water in 2001 when the blasting dropped the water table.
A few minutes after they chanced to meet again at the "water table," near one of the doors.
After the water table had been troweled down and brushed a 1×10-in.
Rich silver ores are found below the water table, but mainly in veins independent of the manganese deposits.
The depth or thickness of the oxide zone depends on topography, depth of water table, climatic conditions, and speed of erosion.
Because of the influence of capillarity, the water table is not a horizontal surface.
The top surface of this zone is called the water table, or the ground-water level.
Thereafter its course is determined largely by the lowest point of escape from the water table.
Above the zone of saturation gravity carries the water downward in devious courses until it reaches the water table.
The water table afforded a footing, and by the aid of an iron trellis erected to support a climbing vine, he reached the window.
|water table |
The upper surface of an area filled with groundwater, separating the zone of aeration (the subsurface region of soil and rocks in which the pores are filled with air and usually some water) from the zone of saturation (the subsurface region in which the pores are filled only with water). Water tables rise and fall with seasonal moisture, water absorption by vegetation, and the withdrawal of groundwater from wells, among other factors. The water table is not flat but has peaks and valleys that generally conform to the overlying land surface. Compare potentiometric surface.
The depth (measured from the surface of the Earth) at which underground water is first encountered.
