Spatial-Temporal Monitoring of Groundwater Using Multivariate Statistical Techniques in Bareilly District of Uttar Pradesh, India

Monitoring of groundwater quality in Bareilly district, Uttar Pradesh, India, was performed at 10 different sites during the years 2005-2006. Obtained quality parameters were treated using principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis (CA). The study shows usefulness of multivariate statistical techniques for evaluation and interpretation of groundwater quality data sets.
