Author: Gholam Hossein Karami

Year: 2009

Publisher: European Water Resources Association (EWRA)

Description:

The study area is located west of Sabzevar, Iran. In this region, the ground water level of piezometers existing in the study area measured during 12 years (1995-2006). In this period, there is a meaningful behavior in the changes of
groundwater level. The temporal variations in groundwater level may be divided into three sections. Moreover, the value of rainfall during the mentioned period varies considerably. Artificial recharge of aquifer using flood spreading method has been performed in the study area. The obtained results show that the temporal variations of ground water level in the study area depend upon both the changes in the annual rainfall and the values of recharged water due to artificial recharge.
