  • In many areas of India, the assessment of groundwater balance at the basin scale is a very important challenge for better management of this resource that is stressed by high exploitation through pumping for irrigation. A methodology is presented and applied to a case study in a hard-rock area. The methodology is based on the relationship between the water balance over a given period and resulting water level fluctuations (Water Table Fluctuation method). It is found that the main positive term… CONTINUE READING
