Sample text

In a general sense, "groundwater" refers to water that occupies the spaces between soil particles and within fractures in the bedrock. Groundwater is supplied by the infiltration of precipitation or by seepage from stream channels. Though British Columbia has very large supplies of surface water and much use is made of them, groundwater is also important. In many places it provides the most easily developed source of water supply. Because groundwater resources are not easily observable, inventory is difficult.

In a simple expression of this cycle, water evaporated from land and sea surfaces and transpired by plants enters the atmosphere as water vapour. If the air is then cooled sufficiently, condensation occurs, clouds form, and precipitation may result. If the precipitation is in the form of snow or hail, it will either accumulate or melt, though re-evaporation and sublimation may also take place. If water returns to the surface in the form of rain most of it will, like snow meltwater, either enter the soil or flow as surface runoff.

In order to portray the regional pattern of earthquake events, those of southeastern Alaska have been included on the map. The data have been expressed as relative magnitudes on the Richter scale, which is calibrated logarithmically and based upon energy release. An earthquake of intensity 3 is just sensible to humans in the area of the epicentre; at intensity 6 (one thousand times as great), damage occurs to buildings. Most of the seismic activity occurs in a north-south lineation off the coast that intersects with the mainland in the vicinity of Fairweather Mountain.
