Abstract

One-dimensional flow of groundwater in a hillside slope is calculated by finite difference method. Material properties and thickness of previous soil layer are assumed to be known at a number of observation points. Kriging is used to obtain the best estimates of soil properties and soil thickness along the slope. First order, second moment method is used to calculate the uncertainty about the groundwater level due to uncertainties about soil properties and soil depth. The mean and coefficient of variation of the groundwater level are obtained. The results may be used for evaluation of landslide risk due to high porewater pressure.
