Abstract: The most influential process for the groundwater shallow aquifer monitoring is groundwater recharge. This study focuses on defining and quantifying the groundwater recharge as a process primarily resulting from precipitation. The spatial and temporal distribution of the recharge was analyzed through a numerical experiment designed to realistically describe a shallow aquifer case. The spatial and temporal structure of the recharge was examined and quantified as a function of precipitation events and soil heterogeneity. The quantified spatial and temporal distribution of the groundwater recharge then was used to demonstrate its influence on sampling network design. It was found that the temporal variability of the recharge has a major impact on the design of groundwater flow monitoring networks.
