Recharge and Groundwater Vulnerability
The objectives are to: 1. Review and evaluate current methods for the estimation of groundwater recharge at sub-catchment level; 2. Review current data availability and identify suitable sub-catchments, which will form the basis of the experimental studies. (These would preferably comprise areas where vulnerability mapping and relevant, long-term, monitoring data already exist); 3. Examine relationships between information from detailed instrumented sites with sub-catchment scale maps of groundwater vulnerability and aquifer potential; 4. Develop a preliminary GIS based assessment tool for the estimation of groundwater recharge (recharge acceptance).
