Monitoring Sea-water intrusion in coastal aquifers and Testing pilot projects for its mitigation

START DATE

01.01.2019

END DATE

30.06.2021

TOTAL BUDGET

€ 2.598.608,61

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE

Improve the climate change monitoring and planning of adaptation measures tackling specific effects, in the cooperation area

LEAD PARTNER

University of Padova - Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering

TARGET GROUPS

  • Local
  • Regional and national public authorities and related entities
  • Universities and research institutes

The main objective of MoST is the monitoring of the seawater intrusion in specific regions of the in northern Adriatic coasts of Italy and Croatia to assess its relevance, and suggest/test appropriate countermeasures. In addition, the project expects to improve the capacity in transnationally tackling saltwater contamination vulnerability and the preservation of strategic fresh water resources in coastal areas.
