PUB Working Group 6-2 (WG6-2): Evaluation and Prediction of Groundwater in Northern China


This working group addresses the key issue on uncertainty in groundwater prediction. This group will establish a comprehensive dataset of the groundwater in northern China, address the approaches to groundwater evaluation and prediction based on the currently available information. It first focuses on the large plain areas in the northern China where the water shortage is a key issue facing to the 21st century. It is also going to develop a guideline for protecting the over pumping of the groundwater by exploring the balance between the natural recharging to the groundwater and the artificial water pumping from the groundwater. It also offers the comparative study to the surface hydrology and enhances the exchanges among different working groups.
