Recorded groundwater levels taken from locations within the Gandak River Basin, Bihar, India, 2017-2019

The dataset contains groundwater levels from 10 boreholes located in the Gandak Basin, Bihar, North India. The data was collected using automatic level loggers recording at 15-minute intervals between April 2017 and February 2019. This data set quantifies the effects of groundwater abstraction on, and seasonal changes in groundwater levels.

The data were collected as part of the NERC sponsored project Coupled Human and Natural Systems Environment (CHANSE), grant number NE/N01670X/1

Provenance & quality

Data was recorded using pressure transducers located in boreholes and calibrated using barometers located nearby. The data were downloaded by trained members of staff from Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar and Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE). These measurements were taken to improve understanding on how groundwater levels vary throughout the year in terms of rainfall and groundwater abstraction. Further details can be found in the supporting documentation.
