Abstract

Spatial disparity of run-off conditions during low-water period in homogeneous watersheds depends on the degree of incision of valleys, but may also be influenced by a structural partitioning or some lateral variations in the aquifer lithology. For small basins (area <300 km2), often hydrometrically unsupervised, campaigns of serial flow measurements, gauging, conductivity and temperature are achieved. The Ardre basin, localised in the Tertiary formations of the Paris Basin is used as a workshop basin. Results validated by hydrological and physico-chemical profiles show increased hydrological yields in the basin which correspond to the increase in the thickness of aquifers and their porosity. These lateral variations of facies and of aquifer thicknesses are related to Eocene sedimentary conditions (Lutetian) for homogeneous basins, which explain the spatial disparity of water resources.
