This model was developed by UC Berkeley graduate students to demonstrate groundwater intrusion as a transect reaching from the bay shoreline inland. Water is poured into one side of the model and demonstrates different soil typologies (represented by foam, wood, etc.) as it flows, gets absorbed, and creates surface level impacts.
