in order to understand the circulation of the fresh water in the costal environment
During the spring 2019 exploration campaign, electrical data with two different Systems were
collected. Then, the data were analyzed using the Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT)
technique. The surveys have been carried out in two different areas: one along a beach in the
Podstrana Municipality and the other in the area of the marine port of Spinut Society.
