UW's WyCEHG Receives Major Research Instrumentation Award
The University of Wyoming will soon receive a new piece of equipment that will more accurately measure aquifer levels in the ground.This geophysical tool, also referred to as a Javelin, can be deployed into boreholes and analyze how much water is in the aquifer and how easy or difficult it might be to extract that water. The instrument works on the same physical principles as medical MRI imaging.
