The accompanying paper provided evidence to suggest that spatial variability of groundwater recharge is ‘true’ variability. This paper attempts to determine the major causes of such variability even at small distances, if there appear to be a frequency distribution to this spatial variability and lastly if it is possible take this variability into account in estimating recharge in an area. The clay content of the top soil appear to have a significant effect on recharge. The spatial variability of recharge appear to be log normally distributed and a way is shown where simple statistics can be used to take account of the spatial variability in estimating recharge.
