"Sustainable management of groundwater by earth observation technologies"

 

RESERVOIR project is dealing with many research topics; the understanding of the hydrogeological properties, their spatial heterogeneous distribution and their changes in the time in the targeted areas. The implementing numerical groundwater flow and geomechanical models to forecast the future response of aquifer systems to stresses, including those related to climate changes. And finally it will present good knowledge and understanding of the current groundwater users (tourism vs. agriculture).

RESERVOIR aims to provide new products and services for a sustainable groundwater management model to be developed and tested in four water-stressed Mediterranean pilot sites and then be applicable in other regions via an interdisciplinary approach.


RESERVOIR project will deal with distinct research topics:

1. Understanding the hydrogeological properties, their spatial heterogeneous distribution and their changes in the time.

2. Implementing numerical groundwater flow and geomechanical models to forecast the future response of aquifer systems to stresses, including those related to climate changes.

3. Good knowledge and understanding of the current groundwater users (tourism vs agriculture). 

To achieve RESERVOIR objectives, the project includes the following activities:

  • Develop innovative methodologies for the hydrogeological characterization of aquifer systems and the optimization of numerical groundwater flow and geomechanical models.

  • Provide effective support tools for the authorities in charge of the land and groundwater management.
