Evaluation of Monthly Groundwater Level at Bursa, Turkey

Regaip Fidan [1] , Egemen Aras [2] , Babak Vaheddoost [3]


As an alternative resource to the surface water, groundwater is a vital resource that has been on the interest of many recent studies. Hence, the evaluation of the groundwater potential, its properties, and its availability needs specific dedication. In this study, monthly groundwater level time series at 9 observation wells scattered aligned with Mount Uludağ in Bursa are used. A 12-year period starting from January 2007 to October 2018 is taken into analysis and several statistical properties of the groundwater level time series are projected on maps. These statistical values are mean, coefficient of skewness, coefficient of kurtosis, coefficient of variation, and correlation coefficient. Results indicate that there is a high potential in the groundwater flow towards Yeniceabat. A strong linear correlation between groundwater levels in wells was observed which shows the potential connectivity between aquifers in the region. In addition, the groundwater levels located at the north show irregular patterns, probably due to water withdrawal for agriculture purposes.
