AbstractGroundwater often plays a major role in social and economic development and in human and ecosystem health. However, little is known about the potential impacts of climate change on this resource in Canada. This paper focuses on trend statistical analysis of historical series of baseflow and groundwater levels. Results show that most groundwater level series have significant trends, whereas most baseflow series have not. Mixed trends are often observed across Canada although some regions can have marked trends for a given variable, period, and series length.
