Participation in projects related to the application for the management of groundwater resources in Mediterranean areas in mountainous catchments: the role of lateral flows in hydrological modeling and validation of groundwater contamination risk
Topic 1.1.1 RIA Sustainable groundwater management in water-stressed Mediterranean areas (Section 1)
We intend to participate to an already established consortium or to collaborate to the creation of a new one in the framework of groundwater contamination risk from anthropogenic sources, based on the independent or combined use of lamped contamination risk approaches (e.g. modified DRASTIC analysis) and processes based contaminant transport model (e.g.FEFLOW) for example following the approach of Pacheco et al., 2018 (Pacheco, F.A.L., Martins, L.M.O., Quininha, M., Oliveira, A.S., Sanches Fernandes, L.F., 2018. Modification to the DRASTIC framework to assess groundwater contaminant risk in rural mountainous catchments Journal of Hydrology 566, 175-191. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2018.09.013)
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The university of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro is a multidiscilplinary organization with high skilled researchers on groundwater research and environmnetal studies being abble to participate or even lead top projects on those issues.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
