AbstractA hydrogeological study focusing on groundwater / surface water (GW/SW) interactions in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, has been undertaken within the framework of the Annapolis Valley project of the Geological Survey of Canada. The main objective of the current project is to study the hydraulic connection between surface water and groundwater flowing within unconsolidated sediments and the regional bedrock aquifer at local (Thomas Brook watershed, 8 km2) and regional (Annapolis Valley, 2100 km2) scales. Fieldwork for this study was carried out during the summers of 2004 and 2005. Data will be integrated into a three-dimensional finite element coupled model to quantify the GW/SW interactions at the local scale in the Thomas Brook watershed. A better understanding of the processes within the
unsaturated zone will be possible with this 3D modeling.
