Abstract. A water table mapping method that accounts for surface water-groundwater (SW-GW) connectivity and human pressure, such as pumping and underground structures occurrence, has been elaborated and tested in the heavily urbanized Parisian area. The method developed here consists in two steps. First, hard data (hydraulic head) and soft data (dry wells) are used as conditioning points for the estimation of the SW-GW connection status. A disconnection criteria is adjusted on observed unsaturated zone depth (UZD). It is a default value in areas where such data are missing. The second step consists in the final mapping of water table. Given the knowledge of the disconnection criteria, the final map is achieved with an ordinary kriging of the UZD that integrates the surface water elevation as a nil unsaturated zone where it is relevant. The methodology is demonstrated on two datasets of UZD observations that were collected under low and high flow conditions.
