Prefered label: Groundwater level
Level below which soil or rock is saturated with water, in the well and at the time the level has been measured, expressed in m above the sea level. Dataset point: Groundwater depth is measured on the field, using a water level meters. The depth is then subtracted from the elevation of the measurement site to obtain the water level elevation. The dataset is a general description of the measurement site including location and well elevation. It features a series of points of the surface elevation of the groundwater body. Raster: Groundwater levels measured are interpolated / extrapolated to obtain groundwater level on every cell of the hydrogeological unit raster. Surfer and ArcGis are the software usually used to create groundwater level raster. The dataset designates a raster with a groundwater level, for each cell of the hydrogeological unit. Time series: Groundwater depth is measured on set intervals on the field, using a levelogger. The depth is then subtracted from the measurement site elevation to obtain the water level elevation. The dataset is a general description of the monitoring site, including id, name, location and elevation. It features series of numbers describing groundwater elevation with date and time of measurement. The dataset is represented as graph widget showing the water level over time.
