The information theory is used to assess a groundwater monitoring network that exists in a hard rock area (Southern India). Since any monitoring network is essentially an information collection system, its technical design and evaluation require a quantifiable measure of information and this measure can be derived using this theory. The use of information-based measures of water table shows that the existing monitoring network contains a sufficient number of wells but is not well designed for the mapping of groundwater level. Results show that 15 wells are vital to measure regional groundwater level, not 28 wells which are being monitored effectively in this area.

Abstract

The information theory is used to assess a groundwater monitoring network that exists in a hard rock area (Southern India). Since any monitoring network is essentially an information collection system, its technical design and evaluation require a quantifiable measure of information and this measure can be derived using this theory. The use of information-based measures of water table shows that the existing monitoring network contains a sufficient number of wells but is not well designed for the mapping of groundwater level. Results show that 15 wells are vital to measure regional groundwater level, not 28 wells which are being monitored effectively in this area.
