## Reverse Water-Level Fluctuation

**Reverse water-level fluctuation** refers to a pumping-induced change in hydraulic head that is opposite in direction from what is expected to occur under normal conditions. Known generally as the Mandel-Cryer effect (Mandel 1953; Cryer 1963), reverse water-level fluctuations are attributed to three-dimensional deformation of an aquifer-aquitard system due to pumping stress (Hsieh 1996). When a brief increase in head is observed after the start of pumping, it is sometimes called the Noordbergum effect after a village in the Netherlands where the phenomenon was first described (Verruijt 1969); on the other hand, Rhade effect is the name given to a decrease in head that occurs after pumping stops.
