Measurement of potential recharge of aquifers by means of soil water balance



Measurement of potential recharge of aquifers by means of soil water balance



Revista Geologica de America Central 34-35: 13-30



In this study, an analysis system has been developed, with the purpose to determine the recharge using a soil water balance. One of the advantages of this methodology is that it considers several variables that have influence in the recharge, such as: monthly rainfall, rainfall retention, soil infiltration capacity, soil characteristics, vegetation coverage, rooting depth, real evapotranspiration and slope gradient. This methodology has been widely used in ground water investigations. The error produced by the described methodology, is usually less than eighty percent.
