GeoConnect³d – Framing groundwater management

June 23 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Groundwater is a crucial resource for humankind, as well as for natural ecosystems. Therefore, any subsurface use considers how it will affect shallow groundwater reserves. At least, that is how it should be, because these interactions are complex and uncertain.

This problem is approached by two GeoERA projects. VoGERA is a groundwater project that looks unidirectionally how groundwater is affected and aims at building generic schemes aided by results from case studies. GeoConnect³d is a cross-disciplinary project, funded under the geo-energy theme, focusing on providing the correct geological context to properly identify and evaluate pathways for interaction, also between the deeper and shallower subsurface.
