The analysis of the dynamic response of shallow aquifers to rainfall is a hot topic for groundwater resources management. A data-driven methodology namely Evolutionary Polynomial Regression is here undertaken to perform this kind of analysis. The introduced methodology is an evolutionary modeling approach, , based on the multiobjective evolution of a population of explicit models. The methodology is here applied to a particular case study involving a shallow porous aquifer located in south Italy, showing some peculiar characters. A discussion of the obtained model in the light of the aquifer hydrogeological structure made it possible an hydrogeological based interpretation of the results. The obtained mod-el is consistent with past studies on the same aquifer by other authors based on different methodologies.
