The project objective is to study coastal aquifers along a NE-SW European traverse. The importance of fresh groundwaters which recharged these regions during times of lowered sea levels in the Late Pleistocene, will be investigated. A wide range of hydrogeological and geochemical techniques will be applied. The aquifer response to human influence and climatic change will be assessed.
