Titre : Groundwater recharge in the Eastern Mediterranean - a comparative study on integrated evaluation techniques for groundwater resources along a hydro climatic gradient

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : IC18970143 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1997-10-01 to 2001-03-31

Descriptif
The GREM Project has three main objectives : * quantification of natural recharge in four different hydro-climatic environments in the Eastern Mediterranean in Greece, Cyprus, Israel and Jordan ; * comparison of the suitability of different methods for groundwater recharge estimation in the Eastern Mediterranean ; * development of an integrated model for groundwater resources evaluation including water quality and water quantity.
In general, the study should help to improve and facilitate the evaluation of groundwater resources in the Eastern Mediterranean. In four case studies in Greece, Cyprus, Israel and Jordan, recommendations on the sustainable abstraction and use of groundwater will be developed for representative key areas. The groundwater potential will be assessed as a regionalized variable : this should improve the knowledge about the natural distribution of groundwater and its quality and enable refined planing, especially in dry areas. With the mixing cell model a tool will be further developed that allows the prediction of groundwater flow and quality for given scenarios. Finally, the comparative study should result in guidelines for the most suitable methods of groundwater recharge estimation and their range of applicability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
