Carbonate Aquifer Characterization Laboratory
The Carbonate Aquifer Characterization Laboratory (CACL) was initiated to promote collaborative research on carbonate aquifer characterization between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Florida Water Science Center (Davie office) and other governmental scientific agencies and academia.

For more information, please see the CACL website.


3-D animated fly-through

3-D animated fly-through of a rendering of very well connected touching-vug burrow porosity related to an Ophiomorpha-dominated ichnofabric from the upper part of the Biscayne aquifer in Miami-Dade County. Simulates a hypothetical route that groundwater would take flowing through this type of high-permeability limestone. Interior diameters of touching-vug burrow porosity ranges from about 1 to 2 cm. (Note: x, y, and z axes scaled in millimeters.) Input data was a STL file generated by the High Resolution X-ray CT Facility at the University of Texas-Austin.
