Variations in level of fluid in wells caused by Earth tides and earthquakes are governed by two leading processes: deformation of medium and filtration. These processes are described by identical systems of equations and are united by the term “hydrodynamical phenomena”. The exact solution is obtained for the problem of level variations in wells due to Earth tides. The similar problem is solved for short-term precursors of a tectonic earthquake. Results are consistent with data of field observations.
