The National Water Information System (NWISWeb) provides real-time and historical data on water flow, water levels, and water quality for approximately 1.5 million sites in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The types of data collected generally fit into the broad categories of surface water and ground water. Surface-water data such as gage height (stage) and stream flow (discharge) ... Full description.

This interactive map depicts real-time steam flow compared to historical stream flow for selected gauging stations in the United States and Puerto Rico. Users may select a state and choose a list of all stations in the state, a state map, or a list of the nearest stations. The map tracks short-term changes (over several hours) in rivers and streams. Its appearance may change very little from one hour ... Full description.

This project examines the entire water system of an ancient city, including supply, distribution, use, and drainage. Until now, individual water system elements have been studied as archaeological objects, but infrequently subjected to analysis by such disciplines as fluids engineering and urban history. This work is part of two larger long-term studies, the first concerning the relationship between ... Full description.

This interactive tour of the water cycle allows students to follow a water molecule from a home's plumbing system as it follows different routes through the hydrologic cycle. Students learn about how water is used, treated, and returned to the natural environment where it can cycle through liquid, solid, and gas phases. Full description.

This site provides a discussion of the downward movement, or infiltration, of water from the surface into soil or porous rock. Graphics illustrate the processes affecting infiltration, including precipitation, soil characteristics and saturation, land cover, slope, and evapotranspiration. Links to additional sources of information are also provided. Full description.
