Señorio is a coastal aquifer located in Marbella (Spain), potentially affected by salinity intrusion due to decreasing natural groundwater recharge and increasing water demand. The challenges faced during MAR2PROTECT project are: validate the robustness of Managed Aquifer Recharge suitability and feasibility mapping techniques, predict the effect of climate change on groundwater chemical status and perform vulnerability maps through a model-based tool (REACH Tool), test the use of Earth Observation techniques to assess subsidences related with Managed Aquifer Recharge and integrate the optical sensing system to the M-AI-R DSS.
Demosite leader: Sara Espinosa Martínez
Affiliated partner: AQUATEC
Climate & global change expected
Mediterranean climate; high water vulnerability; semi-arid places; clear climate change effects; increase of surface water temperature
Groundwater protection technological approach
Managed Aquifer Recharge from upstream aquifer
Societal and policy context
High societal concern about water pollution and drought.
Significant progress towards Water Framework Directive implementation
Interviews related to Demosite based at Marbella (Spain) will be display here.
We are glad to present our first leaflet which includes all project key information Let's take a look here
To ensure a high replication potential, M-AI-R Decision Support System will collect information from 7 demo sites in 4 European countries (Portugal, Italy, Spain, Netherlands) and 2 in non-European countries (Tunisia, South Africa). These demo sites were selected to...
