Report on Assessing Groundwater Stress published by IGRAC

Report on Assessing Groundwater Stress published by IGRAC

Groundwater stress and groundwater use in Germany

IGRAC has published an open access report on 'Assessing Groundwater Stress: An approach of measuring groundwater stress based on sub-national statistical data'. This report, written by Benedikt Ahner, presents a scheme on how to process sub-national water withdrawal and use datasets specified by source and sectoral use, for (ground)water stress calculations at various scales.

The scheme in 'Assessing Groundwater Stress: An approach of measuring groundwater stress based on sub-national statistical data' was applied on a dataset for German watersheds. To show the potential of high-resolution data IGRAC came up with an approach for processing sub-national (ground)water withdrawal and use data to calculate the groundwater stress for Germany by federal state and sub-watersheds (river basin sub-districts).
