Simulation of ground-water flow and potential land subsidence, upper Santa Cruz Basin, Arizona. [R T Hanson; J F Benedict; Tucson (Ariz.); Geological Survey (U.S.)]. USGS: The purpose of this report is to describe a conceptual model of the Antelope Valley ground-water basin, to describe the development and calibration of a numerical model of ground-water flow, aquifer-system compaction, and land subsidence, and to present results of simulated future pumping scenarios being considered by water managers. Simulation of ground-water flow and potential land subsidence, upper Santa Cruz Basin, Arizona / by R.T. Hanson and J.F. Benedict ; prepared in cooperation with the City of : R. T. Hanson.

The simulation of regional ground-water flow indicated that coastal landward flow (seawater intrusion) began in and continued to the end of the period of simulation (). During wet periods or periods of reduced demand for ground water, the direction of coastal flow in the upper-aquifer system reverses from landward to seaward.

DOI: /wri Corpus ID: Cenozoic stratigraphy and geologic history of the Tucson Basin, Pima County, Arizona @inproceedings{AndersonCenozoicSA, title={Cenozoic stratigraphy and geologic history of the Tucson Basin, Pima County, Arizona}, author={Stephen R. .   The extraction of groundwater can generate land subsidence by causing the compaction of susceptible aquifer systems, typically unconsolidated alluvial or basin-fill aquifer systems comprising aquifers and aquitards. Various ground-based and remotely sensed methods are used to measure and map subsidence. Many areas of subsidence caused by groundwater pumping have been identified Cited by: The basin has undergone land subsidence of as much as meters since the 's owing to compaction of the aquifer system in response to ground-water .
