Aquifer

  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The AQUOR project was conceived as demonstrative action aimed at facilitating the inversion of the current trend of overexploitation of groundwater resources and increasing aquifer recharging rates in order to rebalance the upper Vicenza plain’s aquifers and foster their sustainable use. The project area has an important underground water heritage, which represents the water supply for a total of 400.000 inhabitants of the provincial territory. Moreover this...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The WASSERMed project has analyzed, through a multidisciplinary approach, the current and future hydrological balance in Southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East in terms of threats for the national and social security. This analysis included the determination of changes in average flows, frequency and size of extreme precipitation events, runoff, water balance at groundwater level, as well as social and economic factors such as changes in touristic...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Climate change is the survey context of the TRUST project as decisive factor within the surface waters and groundwaters management. In particular TRUST was aimed at quantifying the possible consequences  of climate change on aquifers and identifying adaptation measures through their artificial recharge to mitigate the impacts caused by drought and decreased availability of water resources resulting from climate change. The first project step was the hydrogeological...
