Confined Ground WaterIn hydrologic terms, ground water held under an aquiclude or an aquifuge, called artesian if the pressure is positive.Free Ground WaterIn hydrologic terms, unconfined ground water whose upper boundary is a free water tableGround WaterIn hydrologic terms, water within the earth that supplies wells and springs; water in the zone of saturation where all openings in rocks and soil are filled,
the upper surface of which forms the water table. Also termed Phreatic water.Ground Water DivideIn hydrologic terms, A line on a water table where on either side of which the water table slopes downward. It is analogous to a drainage divide
between two drainage basins on a land surfaceGround Water FlowIn hydrologic terms, streamflow which results from precipitation that infiltrates into the soil and eventually moves through the soil to the stream channel.
This is also referred to as baseflow, or dry-weather flowGround Water HydrologyThe branch of hydrology that specializes in ground water; its occurrence and movements; its replenishment and depletion; the
properties of rocks that control ground water movement and storage; and the methods of investigation and utilization of ground
waterGround Water OutflowIn hydrologic terms, the part of the discharge from a drainage basin that occurs through the ground water. The term "underflow" is often used to
describe the ground water outflow that takes place in valley alluvium (instead of the surface channel) and thus is not measure at a
gaging station.Ground Water OverdraftPumpage of ground water in excess of safe yield.Ground Water RunoffThat part of the runoff which has passed into the ground, has become ground water, and has been discharged into a stream channel
as spring, or seepage water.
