Ground Water Body - Spatial object type

Definition: A distinct volume of groundwater within an aquifer or system of aquifers, which is hydraulically isolated from nearby groundwater bodies.

Description: Groundwater bodies form the principal management units under the European Water Framework Directive (2000/60/CE, 2000). They should be hydraulically continuous entities, and must be defined on the basis of flow or abstraction, and are inextricably linked to surface water bodies.

Description: A formation which, although porous and capable of absorbing water slowly, will not transmit water fast enough to furnish an appreciable supply for a well or spring. Aquicludes are characterized by very low values of "leakage" (the ratio of vertical Hydraulic Conductivity to thickness), so that they transmit only minor inter-aquifer flow and also have very low rates of yield from compressible storage. Therefore, they constitute boundaries of aquifer flow systems.

Definition: The type of geological the unit.

Description: Logical constraints of definition of unit and valid property cardinalities should be contained in the definition.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: GeologicUnitTypeValue

Definition: External object identifier of the spatial object.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: Identifier

Definition: The name of the geologic feature.

Description: EXAMPLE: a lithostratigraphic unit, mineral occurrence, or major fault. Not all GeologicFeatures will have names, for example minor faults.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: CharacterString

Definition: A distinct volume of groundwater within an aquifer or system of aquifers, which is hydraulically isolated from nearby groundwater bodies.

Description: Groundwater bodies form the principal management units under the European Water Framework Directive (2000/60/CE, 2000). They should be hydraulically continuous entities, and must be defined on the basis of flow or abstraction, and are inextricably linked to surface water bodies.

Multiplicity: 0..1

Name of the association: ground Water Body

Association definition: The GroundWateBody with which the natural hydrogeological object interacts.

Attributes

Definition: External object identifier of the spatial object.

Description: NOTE: An external object identifier is a unique object identifier published by the responsible body, which may be used by external applications to reference the spatial object. The identifier is an identifier of the spatial object, not an identifier of the real-world phenomenon.
