Abstract
Abstract Groundwater level simulation models can help ensure the proper management and use of urban and rural water supply. In this paper, we propose a groundwater level tank model (GLTM) based on a conceptual rainfall–runoff model (tank model) to simulate fluctuations in groundwater level. The variables used in the simulations consist of daily rainfall and daily groundwater level, which were recorded between April 2011 and March 2015 at two representative observation wells in Kumamoto City, Japan. We determined the best-fit model parameters by root-mean-square error through use of the Shuffled Complex Evolution-University of Arizona algorithm on a simulated data set. Calibration and validation results were evaluated by their coefficients of determination, Nash–Sutcliffe efficiency coefficients, and root-mean-square error values. The GLTM provided accurate results in both the calibration and validation of fluctuations in groundwater level. The split sample test results indicate a good reliability. These results indicate that this model can provide a simple approach to the accurate simulation of groundwater levels.

Accurate and reliable prediction of shallow groundwater level is a critical component in water resources management. Two nonlinear models, WA–ANN method based on discrete wavelet transform (WA) and artificial neural network (ANN) and integrated time series (ITS) model, were developed to predict groundwater level fluctuations of a shallow coastal aquifer (Fujian Province, China). The two models were testified with the monitored groundwater level from 2000 to 2011. Two representative wells are sel...

ABSTRACT Groundwater level is a major parameter in quantifying groundwater resource. Application of simple tools to simulate and predict groundwater levels is an important issue in groundwater hydrology. Tank model is a simple and useful conceptual hydrological model which is capable to simulate different system states without considering complex hydrological structure. The Shuffled Complex Evolution-University of Arizona (SCE-UA) algorithm is an efficient automatic calibration algorithm in sear...

The approaches to the study of hydrological issues are generally divided into two very different groups: (1) the physical approach; and (2) the system approach (Singh 1988). The physical approach is motivated primarily by scientific study and understanding of the physical phenomena, whereas the practical application of this knowledge to engineering and water resources management is recognized but not always fully required. Unlike detailed physical studies of each hydrological problem, the system...

Summary Reasonable estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge through evapotranspiration is critical for sustainable water resources management in shallow water table areas. The hydrologic processes are highly interactive between the vadose zone and groundwater under shallow water table conditions. In traditional groundwater flow models, the recharge and evapotranspiration fluxes are often oversimplified as a simple sink/source term. However, the recharge and evapotranspiration are observed...

Saudi Arabia is an arid country. It has limited water supplies. About 80–90% of water supplies come from groundwater, which is depleting day by day. It needs appropriate management. This paper has investigated groundwater modeling of Saq Aquifer in Buraydah Al Qassim to estimate the impact of its excessive use on depletion of Saq Aquifer. MODFLOW model has been used in this study. Data regarding the aquifer parameters was measured by pumping tests. Groundwater levels and discharge of wells in th...

Summary We have developed two nonlinear time-series models for predicting groundwater level (GWL) fluctuations using artificial neural networks (ANNs) and support vector machines (SVMs). The models were applied to GWL prediction of two wells at a coastal aquifer in Korea. Among the possible variables (past GWL, precipitation, and tide level) for an input structure, the past GWL was the most effective input variable for this study site. Tide level was more frequently selected as an input variable...

Forecasting of groundwater levels is very useful for planning integrated management of groundwater and surface water resources in a basin. In the present study, artificial neural network models have been developed for groundwater level forecasting in a river island of tropical humid region, eastern India. ANN modeling was carried out to predict groundwater levels 1 week ahead at 18 sites over the study area. The inputs to the ANN models consisted of weekly rainfall, pan evaporation, river stage,...

The tank model, a lumped conceptual hydrological model, is well known due to its simplicity of concept, simplicity in computation while achieving forecasting accuracy comparable with more sophisticated models. However, the calibration of the hydrologic tank model required much time and effort to obtain better results through trial and error method.

Abstract There are growing concerns about nitrate contamination in Kumamoto City, where >700,000 people completely depend on groundwater as a source of drinking water. We found that some groundwater samples showed considerably different nitrate concentrations although their sampling locations were close to one another, and we speculated that this phenomenon was due to the differences in subsurface geological properties. In order to verify this hypothesis, we carried out temporally intensive long...

Abstract With water table drop, managers got extremely concerned about the future of the groundwater resources sustainability of the Sisseb El Alem Nadhour Saouaf aquifer (SANS). In order to understand the groundwater flow dynamic and to assess the functioning of the aquifer system, a three-dimensional (3D) regional geological model of the SANS basin was carried on. The 3D geological model was developed by the combination of 2D seismic reflection profiles, calibrated by wireline logging data of ...

Identifying the spatiotemporal change of the groundwater table to precipitation at the river basin scale can be important for regional water resource management. In this study, we proposed a method that combines singular value decomposition and cross-wavelet approaches to analyze the relationship between groundwater level dynamics and precipitation. The method was applied to the Naoli River Basin, Northeast China. Moreover, the method of continuous wavelet using fast Fourier transform was also u...

Abstract A water balance model was developed to forecast the management strategy of a uranium mill effluent system, located in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. Mining and milling operations, such as pit dewatering or treated effluent release, can potentially influence the hydrology and the water quality downstream of the operations. This study presents the methodology used to predict water volumes and water quality discharging downstream in surface water bodies. A compartment model representing th...

To address the challenges inherent in accessing spatiotemporal hydrological data, water resources professionals have developed various regionalization tools. The present study examines the possibility that changes in landscape metrics including mean shape index, mean perimeter-area ratio, mean patch size and patch density of land use/ land cover could result in variations in the optimized parameters of the conceptual rainfall-runoff Tank model. Data from 30 catchments that are geographically dis...

Because hydrologic responses of an agricultural watershed are influenced by many natural and man-made factors including pond/reservoir, management practices, and/or irrigation/drainage, strategies of hydrological modeling for the watershed must be case-dependent and thus carefully designed to effectively reflect their roles as critical hydrologic components in simulation processes. In this study, we propose a component-based modeling framework that accommodates a flexible modeling approach to co...
