Maximum recessions of shallow groundwater level in central Poland
This article presents a method of describing maximum recessions of groundwater level,drawing on an analysis based on data gathered from 41 sites for the monitoring of groundwaterlevel located in central Poland. Maximum weekly recessions for all of the measurement points wereselected, before being employed as a basis for approximating the regression lines used to calculatethe theoretical “top speed” recession curves between maximum and minimum groundwater levels,and the estimated time needed for such a recession to be achieved. Studied characteristics of all theexamined groundwater recessions were compared with geographical characteristics of the aquifersinvolved, in order that relations between them could be determined.
