In this blog, we present a case study of how medium resolution ASTER satellite data can be used to screen basins for the evidence for onshore surface seepage. The same project was presented as a poster at the recent AAPG Hedberg Research conference 'Hydrocarbon Microseepage: Recent Advances, New Applications, and Remaining Challenges' held in Houston in June 2019 - you can find a link to download the poster at the end of the blog.
The chief minister said that the cultivation of rice on perennial canals such as Ghotki Feeder, Rohri Canal and Nara Canal was causing waterlogging, salinity, seepage and damage to land.
Nutrients from fertilizers applied on crops were washed out due to the seepage.
The dam area, they recalled grew different types of crops, vegetables and fruits, but owing to seepage a vast piece of land had become unproductive.
Under the action of water seepage, the static equilibrium state of filling particles is destroyed, the total mass of seepage particles increases gradually, and particles continue to be lost.
During actual coal seam mining, the permeability of surrounding rock in the stope continuously changes and the changed fluid seepage force would result in a change of the effective mining stress.
Acted by groundwater pressure, their interior broken rocks undergo dissolution, erosion, and abrasion, and the resultant fine particles migrate and disappear under the entrainment of water seepage. When the migration and disappearance develops to a certain degree, the regional and connected pipe flow passages are formed inside the broken rocks and the confined underwater penetrates the roof and floor of coal seams through these passages, resulting in the occurrence of water inrush disasters.
Up to date, many investigations have been conducted to study the nature of water flowing underground; various theories and investigations were put forward to predict seepage phenomenon and still a number of experiments are in progress to make the engineering structures safe.
According to the trial court, "seepage" and "leakage" were more akin to a slow release of a small amount of water consistent with "humidity, moisture and vapor." According to the trial court, weeks, months, or years were the periods of time that it would take for a small discharge of water to cause damage.
Pumps with dynamic seals rely on seepage of the pumped liquid for seal lubrication.
In 1974, after conducting a pumping test and theory analyses, Louis proposed that the seepage discharge of fractured rock masses decreases with the increase of the normal stress, and he proposed a corresponding empirical formula [3].
