Groundwater flooding in towns and agricultural areas

Climate change will affect groundwater levels, especially in the uppermost aquifers. The effects are caused by changed precipitation patterns and in coastal areas changes in sea level. On top of the climate change affects the human impact like drainage and tubing of sewage systems also have a large impact on the levels of groundwater aquifers.

Groundwater flooding will be investigated in the following pilots: UK-1, UK-2, BE-2, NL-3, GE-1, GE-3, DK-1, DK-2, DK-4
