Cumulative Precipitation Departure from Average Characterizing Mountain System Recharge in Semi-arid North Okanagan, South Interior British Columbia, Canada

Jianhua Ping, Xiaohua Wei and Craig Nichol

Abstract:
Mountain system recharge is the major source to the aquifers in the mountainous terrain within arid (semi-) areas. Cumulative precipitation from average is employed to describe mountain system recharge in North Okanagan based on the long term groundwater levels automatically observed by BC Ministry of Environment since 1970s and a gridded (500x500 m) climate data since 1960. The results indicated that mountain system recharge is a major contributor to the aquifers in the valley bottom. The deep aquifers are recharged by mountain system recharge and leakage from the moderate depth aquifer in the central portion of the main valley.
