The Iowa Geological Survey (IGS) has published a new magazine and annual report, IGS Geode.

The magazine describes some of the activities and products of the IGS over the past year with geologic and groundwater feature articles, including high-tech solutions for well siting, new drilling equipment, educating Iowa students, building drought resiliency and sustainability, facilitating re-zoning ordinance, mapping groundwater vulnerability to nitrate, ancient sea creatures, and nitrate and phosphorous at Iowa golf courses.

The IGS, a nationally recognized leader in geologic and hydrogeologic sciences, joined IIHR--Hydroscience & Engineering in 2014, bringing with it more than a century of geologic research and knowledge to the University of Iowa and IIHR.

IIHR and IGS together form an organization with expertise that now covers all aspects of Iowa’s hydrologic cycle — precipitation, evaporation and evapotranspiration, surface flow, infiltration, and groundwater flow.  The broader scope facilitates collaborations and enables researchers to develop the best possible water-related information, analyses, and tools for Iowans.
