    Description

    Glacial till covers large areas of the eastern part of Denmark. Even though this type of geological deposits is of little significance from a groundwater resources point of view it nevertheless has a major impact on the recharge to the primary aquifer systems and on steamflow generation. Observations of the spatial and temporal variations of hydraulic head of moraine till have not been used in the past for calibration of hydrological models. One of the objectives of the project is to examine whether this type of data is of importance for improving model predictions of recharge and streamflow. Intensive field investigations carried out in a small catchment will provide the data base for testing a hydrological model. Specifically the impact of subsurface drainage on recharge and steamflow generating processes will be studied.
