General situation of groundwater levels and spring discharges

The map provides an overview of the current groundwater levels and spring discharges in Switzerland compared with the expected conditions. The data is shown as below, above or equal to the long-term average for each month. The calculation is based on percentiles of the dataset for the full monitoring period (basic data in m amsl and l/min or m3/s). A figure significantly lower than the average conditions (low groundwater level or spring discharge) is reached if the current value is below the long-term 10% percentile, i.e. it is among the lowest 10% of all the data ever measured for the relevant month. A groundwater level or spring discharge between the 10% and 90% percentiles means that conditions are normal. Conversely, a figure significantly higher than the long-term average conditions (high groundwater level or spring discharge) is reached if the current value is above the 90% percentile.
