Groundwater Elevation Color Ramp, California, Spring 2011

Author(s)
Description
This raster dataset (GeoTIFF) represents groundwater elevation in California for spring 2011 using a color ramp. This layer is a smoothed approximation of the groundwater level 'surface' based on the measurement data. The measurement values may not exactly match the contour values because of the smoothing process. Water level measurements are selected based on measurement data and well construction information (where available) and approximate groundwater levels in the unconfined to uppermost semi-confined aquifers.This layer is intended to be used as a compliment to data, reports, and other information provided by the California Groundwater Information Center.
