groundwater monitoring maps News

  • New map of global groundwater depths

    Despite groundwater’s importance to ecosystems, little is known about its global distribution. Researchers have now developed a model to map groundwater, revealing that ecosystems covering 22-32% of the Earth’s surface rely on this important resource. Groundwater is vital for many ecosystems, providing crucial support to plants and animals, especially during droughts. ...

  • Mapping groundwater flooding for the EU Floods Directive

    In the coming years the EU Floods Directive1 will require Member States to produce flood hazard and risk maps. Taking the UK as a case study, new research highlights the need for advances in data collection, mapping and groundwater flood warning systems to meet EU requirements for maps and management plans. Although often occurring less frequently than fluvial (river) flooding, the effects of ...

  • Groundwater evaluation platform

    SuperGeo Technologies has developed a data platform for groundwater recharge areas in order to evaluate the recharge potential. The platform is able to assist researchers in delimiting groundwater recharge areas and also in determining parameters such as recharge rate, pumping rate, flow rate and recharge potential. Water resource protection is one of the most important policies in Taiwan. ...
