Groundwater rising due to rainfall events is one of the main factors contributing to slope instability. Rising groundwater levels reduces the shear strength of soil and increases seepage forces which can cause slope failure. A probabilistic method for estimating groundwater changes using available rainfall data can be used in many geotechnical engineering applications, including slope stability analysis. In this study, a probabilistic methodology for estimating groundwater level changes using rainfall and monitored groundwater wells is presented, and the method is used for predicting water-table changes in another area.
