The objectives of the project consist in the development of an information system, aiming at the evaluation, the analysis and the management of water resources and of efficient and user friendly numerical models to serve as reliable tools in decision making strategies for the management of groundwater resources.

Development of numerical models for simulation of salt water intrusion in coastal aquifers, based on different finite element and boundary element techniques. Field investigations in Mediterrean countriesd and application of the models in order to improve the management of fresh groundwater resources.
