Abstract

Measurements from an instrumental network in a small area have been used to establish index-based models for topographic and climate-related controls of piezometric response. The example, in this study, uses the topography index of TOPMODEL, in GIS to predict the spatial patterns of groundwater elevation for seasonal soil moisture conditions and given rainfall inputs. This allows modelling of catchment-wide response of soil water to rainstorms with different return periods (representing different magnitudes), and is an essential prerequisite for a probabilistic regional slope stability analysis
