Please RSVP: By Friday 04/2 (951) waterboards.ca.gov Newsletter of the Inland Geological Society Volume 26 No. 4 In this Issue: April Speaker Shelby Barker Upcoming Events/IGS Meeting Schedule... 3 Current IGS Officers... 4 LSA MEETING LOCATION MAP... 4 April Speaker: Shelby R. Barker, GIT Staff Geologist, Kleinfelder Graduate Student, CSU Fullerton An Investigation of Potential Surficial Recharge in the Lucerne Valley Groundwater Basin, Mojave Desert, CA Abstract To better understand the characteristics of recharge within the Lucerne Valley groundwater basin, a series of infiltrations tests, soil analyses and computer simulations were conducted throughout the watershed. Previous studies have suggested that because desert valleys receive less than eight inches of annual precipitation and have deep, unsaturated zone, natural recharge cannot occur. Within the Lucerne Valley, gaps in the most recent water budget, increasing groundwater levels and geochemical analysis of groundwater samples indicate that additional recharge must be occurring within the valley. Studies elsewhere in the Mojave Desert have suggested that recharge can occur as infiltration from stream flow in ephemeral channels. Field investigations (infiltration tests, stream measurements and soil sample collection) and laboratory tests (sieve analyses, chloride tests, falling-head permeameter and moisture content) were conducted in three locations throughout the Lucerne Valley: Lucerne Creek, alluvial fill/fan and the Lucerne (Dry) Lake. Continued on Page 2

2 PAGE 2 Results suggest that a source of recharge, similar to those found in recent studies elsewhere in the Mojave Desert, exists in the Lucerne Creek within the northwestern section of the basin as well. Estimated volumes of recharge was determined using numerical modeling for precipitation events based on 1-year, 2-year and 5-year frequencies provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Atlas 14. This research is intended to better understand the natural surficial recharge in the Lucerne Valley groundwater basin. Furthermore, this research may also provide a cost-effective method to determine potential recharge in other basins and better understand surficial recharge in desert environments. Biography: Shelby Barker is graduate student at California State University, Fullerton. She will be graduating with a Master s degree in Geological Sciences in May While studying at CSU Fullerton, she worked part-time at the university as a Research Assistant and at Geo-Logic Associates as a Staff Geologist. In 2008, she graduated with departmental honors from California State University, San Bernardino with her Bachelor s degree in Geological Sciences (Environmental Geology option). Shelby recently joined Kleinfelder in the Redlands office as a Staff Geologist. Flow in Lucerne Creek during a heavy rainstorm in January 2010 Shelby collecting soil samples for analysis.
