AbstractOntario's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) oversees Ontario's Low Water Response (OLWR) Program. As partners with MNRF, conservation authorities across Ontario coordinate responses to local low water conditions, amongst the various levels of government, as conditions arise. In further support of OLWR, conservation authority (CA) geoscientists have, in the past, participated in a technical consultation group with staff from MNRF and from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC).
The technical geoscience group convenes once or twice annually to discuss amongst other topics, the potential uses of available groundwater level monitoring data from the MOECC's Provincial Groundwater Monitoring Network (PGMN) in the OLWR Program. In support of the use of this data, the staff geoscientist from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) was asked to review and report on the available literature that explains the barometric responses, which are known to be recorded in some groundwater level monitoring data-sets.
This presentation will: provide an overview of the information summarized in the literature review; present several examples of barometric pressure responses and earth tide effects in PGMN time-series data; explain the necessary next-steps in the initiative; and summarize the relevance for all groundwater level monitoring projects.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
