Groundwater Simulation System

Bar Code: 1371

Description: This kit illustrates what ground water is, how it is stored, where it comes from, and where it is going. The kit allows study of Darcy's Law. It contains a large visual demonstration which requires 1 hour+ to set up. For best results, the kit should remain functional for several hours to several days.
