      Great Salt Lake is the fourth largest terminal lake in the world, with an area of about square kilometers at its historic high elevation. Since its historic low elevation of meters in , the lake has risen to a new historic high elevation of meters in –, a net increase of about meters. About 60 percent of this increase, meters, has occurred since Cited by:

SELECTED HYDROLOGIC DATA FOR SALT LAKE VALLEY, UTAH,WITH EMPHASIS ON DATA FROM THE SHALLOW UNCONFINED AQUIFER AND CONFINING LAYERS By Susan A.

Thiros ABSTRACT Hydrologic data were collected from wells in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah, from toto better understand the hydrologic system in the by: 2. This report contains hydrologic data collected in the Salt Lake Valley mainly from through The Salt Lake Valley (pI.

1) is bounded by the Wasatch Range on the east, the Oquirrh Mountains on the west, the Traverse Mountains on the south, and the boundary. Great Salt Lake’s closed basin. Along the Wasatch Front and for most of northwestern Utah, a special circumstance exists where the surface runoff and ground-water components of the hydrologic cycle cannot flow to the ocean, but are limited to Great Salt Lake’s closed basin.

The Great Salt Lake, a remnant of Lake Bonneville, diminishes and accumulates a vast quantity of salt. Great Salt Lake information: Pleistocene: Glaciers blanket the Uinta Mountains, the Wasatch Range, and mountains of the Colorado Plateau. Lake Bonneville, a large fresh-water lake, covers many northern and western Utah valleys.

This report is the last of 19 hydrologic reconnaissances of the basins in western Utah. The purposes of this series of studies are (1) to analyze available hydrologic data and describe the hydrologic system, (2) to evaluate existing and potential water-resources development, and (3) to identify additional studies that might be needed.

The Salt Lake City South ' quadrangle is near the center of Salt Lake Valley and only late Quaternary (late Pleistocene and Holocene) surficial deposits are exposed in the quadrangle.

The salinity of Great Salt Lake is measured by taking specific gravity and temperature measurements and comparing them to standardized values reported in a table. Specific gravity is measured in the field by testing a water sample with a device very similar to a battery or antifreeze tester.

According to the experts, Lake Bonneville reshaped itself when at an elevation of feet the earth dike at Red Rock on the far northern shore broke loose and a catastrophic flood surged down the present Marsh Valley and Portneuf River to the Snake River.

Lakes The Great Salt Lake The water from most lakes tastes like the water from a tap in your house. This kind of water is called freshwater. Almost all lakes are filled with freshwater. However, the water in the Great Salt Lake of Utah is saltwater, not freshwater.

In fact. The rate of evaporation from the Great Salt Lake (GSL) water surface is a function of local meteorological conditions, the temperature, and the salinity of the water surface.After the Great Lakes, Utah's Great Salt Lake is the largest body of water (by area) in the United States.

Back in the middle of the 19th century, when pioneers first arrived in the area, the lake. Groundwater Wells There's a good chance that the average Joe who had to dig a well in ancient Egypt probably did the work with his hands, a shovel, and a bucket.

He would have kept digging until he reached the water table, where all the spaces between the rock and dirt particles are filled with water, and water filled the bottom of the hole.
