Maps of subsidence caused by groundwater pumping produced for the California Dept. of Water Resources allow monitoring of its effects on infrastructure and the aquifer system. Coupled with ancillary information on water levels in wells and subsurface geology, the possibility exists to predict areas more susceptible to subsidence. We are developing systems and information products that water resource managers and hydrologists can use to promote better management of this important resource.
