- To produce a high-density hig-resolution 3D Hydrogeological model of coastal area, based upon multi-parametric inversion of data from different geophysical techniques and other sources;
- To indicate the extent of saline water intrusion;
- To indicate areas potentially suitable for managed aquifer recharge;
- To set up a hydrogeological model;
- To establish a monitoring network of groundwater level and quality;
- To set up and calibrates the 3D numerical model of aquifer system at the demonstration site.
- The characterization of the coastal aquifer will be obtained through dedicated geophysical measurements, integrated with ancillary information, to derive maps of hydrogeological interest through multiparametric inversion.
The geophysical techniques applied will be state-of-the-art and namely:
- Airborne electromagnetics (AEM) for both near surface and deeper penetration
- Magnetic Resonance Sounding (MRS)
- Data analysis;
- Customized multiparametric inversions taking into account all information available (AEM, MRS, logs), will generate maps of, e.g., clay content, water salinity, etc.;
- 3D characterization of the aquifer’s geometry, and the mapping of the saline intrusion.
- (based on the above) groundwater flow models.
