120 MCQ
Not required to remember numbers; but concepts, terms and diagrams are key (e.g. major tectonic
settings)
Based on:

Challenges of change
- urban sprawl
- severe weather
o effects of weather are more severely felt in urban areas
o losses much greater now because populations are so high now
- Hardening of watersheds
o Insertion of asphalt and impermeable surfaces for buildings
o When ground covered, water flows directly into creeks which were originally fed with
groundwater
o Baseflow much less, but surface runoff much larger
Lowered capacity for dilution of contaminants
Reduced baseflows result in lower rivers result in higher temperatures of water
x Water drains off hot asphalt so higher temperatures
Firt flush: washing off of contaminants that have fallen off on road surfaces,
pavements
Flooding risk, and enhanced erosion and sediment aggradations
o Sediment in rivers
o Road salt t goes into the groundwater
A lot of salt stored in the groundwater system already
Source area protection t prohibit certain landuse types
x In areas that feed groundwater supply
x E.g. oak ridge
- Wastes/groundwater contamination
o Precipitation infiltrates ground to become groundwater
o Baseflow into creeks
o Hydrological cycle
Precipitation t> flows to creeks/infiltrates into groundwater flow (permeable)
Aquifers t rocks and sediments that are permeable and have a lot of water in
them
x Confined aquifers are under confining layers (impermeable e.g. clay)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
