Marbella, Spain

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.
