Abstract. The analysis of the cross-correlation between the seismicity and the daily water level changes in both the Koyna and Warna (India) reservoirs is studied. The time lag between both datasets is calculated and is applied to estimate the hydraulic diffusivity. The range of the hydraulic diffusivity estimated between 0.1 m2 s−1 and 10 m2 s−1.
