Project: Karst Aquifer Resources availability and quality in the Mediterranean Area

Acronym KARMA (Reference Number: 2018-SECTION2-12)
Project Topic Karstified carbonate rocks constitute 21.6 % of the European land surface and contain abundant groundwater resources. These karst aquifers contribute substantially to the freshwater supply of most Mediterranean countries and many large cities, e.g., Rome and Beirut. However, karst aquifers are highly variable in terms of water availability and quality, and vulnerable to contamination and climate change. Therefore, they require specific investigation and management approaches.
