    The Tucson AMA consists of three ground water sub-basins, the Avra Valley Sub-basin, the Upper Santa Cruz Sub Basin snd the Altar Valley sub-basin. Our focus will be on the Avra Valley and Upper Santa Cruz basins, the Altar Valley basin in the southern section of the Tucson AMA is home to a wildlife refuge and is largely undeveloped (Anderson.   The extraction of groundwater can generate land subsidence by causing the compaction of susceptible aquifer systems, typically unconsolidated alluvial or basin-fill aquifer systems comprising aquifers and aquitards. Various ground-based and remotely sensed methods are used to measure and map subsidence. Many areas of subsidence caused by groundwater pumping have been identified Cited by:

1 Introduction and Background. Overpeople reside in Tucson, which is in the Upper Santa Cruz (USC) alluvial basin and bounded by fault‐block mountains in southeastern Arizona (Figures 1a and 1b).

The population is reliant on a semiconfined, unconsolidated aquifer system, which supplies much of the community freshwater by: The Phoenix basin is a major source of groundwater for the large growing metropolitan area, and in some parts of the basin the groundwater contains municipal and industrial contaminants.

To understand the directions and flow rates of the groundwater requires knowledge of the geometry of the basin, the internal stratigraphic of the basin-filling.
