NERO

Mapping the potential of groundwater on the Costa del Sol and improving hydrogeological knowledge of the Guadalmansa River environment.

NERO

The NERO project aims to adapt and apply innovative methodologies for the spatial diagnosis of areas likely to store and / or transmit water in a feasible way, that is, to map places where aquifers potentially exist and their hydrogeological characteristics allow a rational and sustainable use of water.

Likewise, and in parallel, in this project a hydrogeological characterization is being carried out in detail of the aquifers of the Guadalmansa River area (Estepona – Málaga) to evaluate their water resources and thus be able to carry out a hydrological planning that allows sustainable water extractions. To this end, various hydrological and hydrochemical research techniques are being used, such as the collection of surface and groundwater samples, which are analyzed for their chemical and isotopic composition, in addition to carrying out flow measurements in the Guadalmansa riverbed.
