Assessment of groundwater resources for water supply in the north-western Tuscany

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will focus on the definition of the type of groundwater resources in the test area and it will lead to the realization of groundwater mapping, wells and springs, vulnerability to pollution of the aquifers of interest and quality of groundwater. The researcher will also contribute to the realization of the water budget for the aquifers of interest, taking account of the possible changes as result of climate change; a detailed study of resources still exploitable will be carried out, paying attention to the proposition of a network for the control of strategic resources. Finally, the research will lead to the realization of a mathematical model of the aquifer in the Apuan-Versilian area, also with reference to the problems of subsidence and sinkholes.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
